King Nikola's Palace, now a Museum is a significant feature in this town, the earlier Capital of Montenegro. The history surrounding all the buildings in Cetinje is quite amazing, as is the overall... more »
The former palace of King Nikola is charming because of the poverty of Montenegro at that time and the tiny scale of the royal palace, reflecting the nature of the country during its brief period of monarchy. It is on the scale of an elegant but cash-strapped English Victorian country house. There are family heirlooms, including paintings, weapons, clothes and photographs of Nikola, his family and relatives. The place is a curiosity and if you are in the former capital, worth paying the entrance price. There is no hard sell in the tiny souvenir area.
Very rich, beautiful museum. Representing one small country trought history, how people are living, the way how they lived and one person king Nikola what did for his country
