The Monasteries of Montenegro: A Spiritual and Architectural Journey


Montenegro, a country where the mountains touch the sea, is not only known for its breathtaking natural landscapes but also for its profound spiritual heritage, deeply rooted in the many monasteries that dot its terrain. These sacred places are not just centers of worship; they are the keepers of Montenegrin history, culture, and art. This piece takes you on a journey through some of Montenegro's most significant monasteries, exploring their architectural beauty, historical significance, and the tranquility they offer to all.

Ostrog Monastery: A Miracle Embedded in Stone
Perched almost miraculously in a vertical cliff nearly 900 meters above the Zeta valley, the Ostrog Monastery is a marvel of human endeavor and faith. Founded in the 17th century by Metropolitan Bishop Vasilije, who is now enshrined as a saint, the monastery is a pilgrimage site for people of all faiths fr om around the world. The Upper Monastery houses the Church of the Presentation and the Saint Basil of Ostrog’s relics, attracting visitors who seek miracles and solace. The blend of natural and man-made beauty here is a testament to Montenegro's spiritual resilience and creativity.

Cetinje Monastery: The Heart of Montenegrin Orthodoxy
Located in Montenegro's old royal capital, Cetinje, this monastery is a symbol of the Montenegrin struggle for independence and religious freedom. Founded in the 15th century by Prince-Bishop Ivan Crnojević, the monastery has been a spiritual and political center of Montenegrin life. It houses important religious relics, including the hand of John the Baptist and a piece of the True Cross, making it a significant site for Orthodox Christian pilgrims.

Morača Monastery: A Masterpiece of Medieval Art
Situated in the central part of Montenegro, near the Morača River, the Morača Monastery stands as a testament to the country’s medieval art and architecture. Built in 1252 by Stefan Vukanović, a member of the Nemanjić dynasty, the monastery is famous for its 13th-century frescoes, which depict biblical scenes and saints with remarkable emotion and detail. The tranquil setting and the architectural harmony with nature make Morača not just a place of worship but a sanctuary for those seeking peace and contemplation.

Reževići Monastery: Wh ere History Meets the Sea
Nestled between Budva and Petrovac, overlooking the Adriatic Sea, the Reževići Monastery is a hidden gem of spiritual and historical significance. Though the exact date of its foundation is unknown, it is believed to have been established in the 13th or 14th century. The monastery complex, with its Church of the Dormition, is a serene place that offers breathtaking views of the sea, making it a perfect spot for reflection and meditation.

The monasteries of Montenegro are much more than just religious sites; they are the bearers of the country’s soul, narrating stories of faith, resistance, and artistic achievement. They offer a unique blend of natural beauty, historical depth, and spiritual solace. Visiting these sacred places provides not just a glimpse into Montenegro's religious heritage but also an opportunity for personal reflection and peace. Whether you are drawn by faith, history, art, or simply the search for tranquility, Montenegro’s monasteries welcome all, promising an unforgettable journey through the heart and spirit of this remarkable country.

  • At the beginning of April 2022, our family living in Prague bought a house in Sutomore with the assistance of your company.
    Let me express my gratitude to the management of your company for the service provided, and especially to your employees - Anastasia Zeyak, Alexei Grachev and Elena Bozhovich for their attention, patience and even care for the whole time of buying real estate and the services provided after the purchase.
    I would really like all companies to work with the same quality of service. After coming into contact with this kind of attitude towards the client, all our environment, if necessary, will refer to your company only.
    With gratitude on behalf of our family.

  • Based on my experience with CMM in Budva, Montenegro, I can say that they are reliable, fast, and they deliver what they promise. They take really good care of their clients. For instance, I was offered a lift from the airport, and they would take me back and forth from Tivat to Budva and Becici to see various properties. They would answer all of my questions and respond promptly. They have an excellent team: Katarina, Alexander, Natasha, Martin and some other guys whose names I don’t remember. Katarina, my wonderful agent, went to every length to help me find a perfect home. Unfortunately, my situation changed and I had to postpone my relocation to Montenegro.
    I would strongly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a property in Montenegro.

  • We were introduced to CMM by friends who had already done research on Montenegro and CMM. We purchased our apartment in Dobrota, just outside Kotor, all remotely from South Africa, during the lockdown. Everything was seamless without any problems at all. All the CMM departments work together well from the sales team, head office, legal, interior design and rental department. Every detail was well communicated with an abundance of zoom meetings, videos, emails etc
    We are thrilled with the outcome and enjoyed working with the CMM team. They were incredibly professional.
    After sales service is also excellent as we move into the rental phase of the apartment and over all management of the apartment including maintenance.
    We have been directly and indirectly involved with many houses/apartments all over the world and this was the up there with the best service we have received.
    Thanks to everyone we dealt with at CMM it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you all. We look forward too many happy years working with you on our rental.

  • Last year we decided to find a new home close to the sea. It was quite difficult in the beginning to make the right choice. Once we found CMM Company was a great luck! We immediately received detailed consultation on the country and purchase opportunities. Being attracted by Kotor - one of the most amazing parts of the coast, we decided to take a family trip and maybe make our dream of new home come true. As just discoverers of Montenegro, we were accepted like at home which was a one more pleasant surprise. The most important, we received all detailed information about country regions and procedure of buying property during the first few days. And how beautiful the car journeys were! Difficult choice, but when you find the home you want you can't refuse it. CMM did best to help us with this finding! All the purchase procedure passed well with CMM professional work! Now we are happy owners of a wonderful house with a Kotor bay view, being perfectly served by CMM Management company (of course, we've chosen CMM as professional house manager). Hope our friends and relatives would also move to Montenegro with the CMM help soon !!!
