Spend an unforgettable day in Budva during your yacht charter in Montenegro
Let Boatsters Black and their trusted local partner take care of you during your luxury yacht charter in Budva, Montenegro and spend an unforgettable day on this peninsula that juts out into the azure sea.
Budva, with its fortified city walls and long, rich history is an old town with medieval architecture, dominated by the Venetian style inherited from its glorious past. Walk around the city during the early hours and allow yourself to get lost, following your instincts. The historical center of the city is the Citadel fortress, which used to be the main defensive bastion of Budva. The citadel was originally built in 840, and acquired its present appearance in the 19th century when the territory was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Wandering around, you will eventually end up in one of the enchanting, cobbled streets leading to the sea. Then, when you are back at the marina, get picked up by your private guide to start today’s signature tour at the Lipska Cave.
Are you ready for your first adventure of the day, exploring the charming diversity of karstic features of the cave? The cave’s authenticity lies in its genuine wilderness that leaves a lasting impression during your unique experience visiting the underground world.
Lipska cave is one of the largest cave monuments in Montenegro. Its 2,5 km long system of passages and halls makes it a place you simply must visit, as did many notable historic figures, among which the Montenegrin royalty, before you. Various renowned explorers from the 19th century left written documents regarding the cave’s existence and its abundance in cave ornaments, and explorations continue up to this day. Nature has created unique and striking forms of cave ornaments which will leave an everlasting impression on you and your loved ones. Today, the cave represents not only one of the best places to visit in Cetinje, but also a one of a kind natural attraction not to be missed while in Montenegro!
Once your eyes have adjusted to the sunlight after leaving the cave, you will make your way to the National Museum in Cetinje, your next stop.
The National Museum of Montenegro
The National Museum is a complex of buildings, comprising five departments: King Nikola’s Museum also known as the former State Museum, the Art Museum, the Historical Museum, the Ethnographic Museum and the Museum of Petar II Petrović Njegoš. The departments are situated in Cetinje, in residences that are in themselves major cultural-historical monuments like King Nikola’s Palace, the Government House, Biljarda and the former Serbian Embassy building. Your private guide will guide you along the premises, telling you all about the fascinating history, before heading to the next location, located at the top of Lovcen mountain and highly associated with the national museum.
The Mausoleum of Njegoš
On your way to the Mausoleum, make sure you keep your eyes peeled to take in the beautiful surroundings, the forest is filled with majestic trees, filling the air with that special Mediterranean scent so characteristic for this coastal area. The Mausoleum of Montenegrin ruler Petar II Petrović Njegoš is an impressive and mystic destination.
The mausoleum was designed by a world-famous sculptor, Ivan Mestrovic and the construction took five years. The mausoleum is situated on what used to be the Njegoss chapel, in which Petar II Petrović Njegoš was buried earlier. Experience the most beautiful meeting of land and sea, as English poet Lord Byron so well wrote, when you look down from the peak of Lovcen mountain to the foothill towards the Montenegrin coast and the Bokokotorski Bay. Get your cameras out and take plenty of pictures of the mesmerizing view, you can see all the way to Italy, Albania and the mountains of Serbia from here!
