Lovćen National Park

The best hike I ever did was up to Lovćen mountain. Mostly because I didn’t really had to hike that much, ’cause you can go up the hill by car. I mean, if you can handle the serpentin road, which I totally can’t. I was nauseated. Luckily there is a really nice restaurant around halfway, where you have amazing view and equally fantastic sopska salad.

Wish I had a picture about the salad

And you can meet friends like this fellow:

If you go even further, there is a little valley with log-cabins. You can buy delicious cheese and Prsut, witch is a kind of ham that they smoke for a year. The salesman play the flute all day for their own amusement. And if you hike up there on foot or by bike, you can sleep there for free.

While listening to the flutes, you look up the mountain, and see this:

If you go even higher, you will reach the Mausoleum. There are around 300 stairs that take you to the top.

Don’t let the tunnel fool you, it’s just hiding more stairs

Without further ado, I post my favourite pictures from that day:
