Practical Info

The Ostrog Monastery is open 6am to 5pm daily in May through September. It is open 5am to 4pm daily in October through April. The nearest city to the Ostrog Monastery is Niksic, just over 9 miles (15 km) away. There, you can catch a taxi to the monastery entrance. Trains run from the capital of Podgorica to Ostrog Station several times a day, and take 45 minutes each way. The walk from the station to the lower monastery takes about an hour. Tour buses also run from major tourist cities in Montenegro.

When visiting the monastery, visitors should wear long skirts or pants, and cover their heads and shoulders when visiting Saint Basil’s relics inside the Church of the Presentation. It is tradition to leave gifts for the monks outside of the church before entering.

Memorable day in Montenegro

North Montenegro, Durmitor, Tara & Ostrog Tour
We spent a great day seeing Montenegro's nature and it was very memorable. The guide had good English, it was comfortable to speak with him, we heard a lot of interesting stories about places and history. A car was modern and suited for the long trip. Small suggestion - to provide an opportunity to choose, where to have breakfast and lunch.

Excellent trip. Highlights were zip lining over the Tara river and hiking at Black Lake. Helene was very informative and did an excellent job. Good driver for very twisty roads on a 13 hour trip. The bus was comfortable and not over crowded.

Ostrog and Rijeka Crnojevic Tour from Kotor
Our Guide was Mili. From the very negative the end Mili we felt very safe and informed. Mili was an excellent driver, who was very knowledgeable about the history of Montenegro and all places we visited. You will not be disappointed.

Slavko was absolutely wonderful! His driving was fantastic. We were sincerely astounded by the way he maneuvered those winding roads. He was super knowledgeable and kept us on schedule. He was funny and professional. He gave us one of the best tours we have ever taken. We highly recommend him.

Day trip: Ostrog monastery - Niagara waterfalls private tour from Podgorica
We had taken trip of Durmitor National Park with this company and the owner had come himself to show us around, so to maintain continuity he took us on this trip too. Appreciate Mr Dimitri's professionalism and customer service. We felt comfortable despite the fact that we were travelling with our 1.5 year old. It's always interesting to learn about other cultures and histories and this monastery is a unique one ! The Niagara falls set in a serene setting is a very calming place and ideal for picnics, but since we went in winter wasn't the ideal time for it .

Best day in Montenegro

North Montenegro, Durmitor, Tara & Ostrog Tour
It was our best day in Montenegro! You HAVE to go with Jelena. I never met such an open minded guide who loves interact with the "tourists". She knows everything about the country and gave even 100% for the really small group we were. Professional and warm at the same time!

North Montenegro, Durmitor, Tara & Ostrog Tour
A 14hr tour taking in a third of Montenagro. But the time flew because every stop was well timed. The guide was a local and and a expert on all things related to Montenagro. The driver was outstanding, how he managed the mountainous terrain all day without mistake, had all the passengers in awe. Highly recommended for those that want to see heaps in one day.

North Montenegro, Durmitor, Tara & Ostrog Tour
We were staying in Kotor, and wanted to see the rest of Montenegro. This is a long trip, but Milos was an incredible guide! Our driver (whose name, unfortunately, I only heard as "Zorro" - pretty sure I misunderstood) maneuvered the twisting, narrow roads with confidence, and I am grateful I didn't have to drive. Milos was very knowledgeable, funny and efficient. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone had fun, had what they needed and stayed comfortable. I highly recommend!
