The most visited pilgrimage destination in Montenegro, the Ostrog Monastery is also one of the most popular Christian sites in the world. The 17th-century Serbian Orthodox monastery is carved into a mountain cliff 2,953 feet (900 m) above the Zeta Valley, and is dedicated to Saint Basil of Ostrog, who is buried there. The upper section of the monastery contains the Church of the Presentation, home to Saint Basil’s relics and 17th-century frescoes, as well as the Church of the Holy Cross, a small cave church. The lower monastery holds the Church of the Holy Trinity and the monks' residences.

Tradition dictates that pilgrims walk the three kilometers from the lower to upper monastery barefoot. Spectacular views of the Bjelopavlici plain await at the top.

Visit Ostrog Monastery and traditional rural household - Montenegro Private Tour

Visit Ostrog Monastery and traditional rural household - Montenegro Private Tour

star-5
1
Perched high upon a cliff, rising 900m above the Zeta valley stands Ostrog, the most important site in Montenegro for Orthodox Christians, attracting up to a million visitors annually. This religious attraction is not without its fair share of legends and stories. The monastery has been carved almost entirely on an impossibly vertically positioned mountain cliff and is the pride of Montenegrin spirituality. Constructed in 1665 within two large caves, it gives the impression that it has grown out of the very rock. On Ostrog monastery tour, you will hear many stories and legends about how it was built, about the monks who reside here and above all, you will hear about St Basil – the miracle worker, whose bones were laid to rest in the Upper Monastery. Another highlight of this trip is that you will visit a local household that reflects how old Montenegro is kept alive in modern days. Enjoy in traditional Montenegrin treats prepared by the local hosts.
