About this spot
Lovćen’s main attraction, this magnificent mausoleum (built in the 1970s) sits at the top of Jezerski Vrh (1657m). There are 461 steps up to the entrance where two granite giantesses guard the tomb of Montenegro’s greatest hero. Inside under a golden mosaic canopy, a 28-ton Petar II Petrović Njegoš rests in the wings of an eagle, carved from a single block of black granite by Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović.
