Now we will pass the most important town in Montenegrin history – Cetinje. Cetinje was a former capital of Montenegro but also hometown of the most famous Montenegrin ruler and also a poet.
CETINJE "THE HEART OF MONTENEGRO"
At the foot of Lovcen Mountain lies the town of Cetinje, both the old and new capital of Montenegro. The Cetinje Monastery, the symbol of Montenegrin spirituality, keeps in its treasury the most precious relics such as the embalmed hand of Saint John the Baptist, part of the Holy Cross, and the book "Oktoih Prvoglasnik", the first book of the Balkans and Slavic south printed in the Cyrillic alphabet as early as 1494. Cetinje as the historic capital contains important buildings such as Biljarda, which Njegos built in 1838, the Palace of King Nikola, the Blue Palace, Zetski dom and other buildings that were once consulates of powerful countries. The Government House, a neo-baroque building, now houses the Art Gallery with the Blue Chapel, having one of the best-known icons of the Christian world "Lady of Philerme". In the same building, there are collections of contemporary artists, including the works of Picasso, Renoir, Chagall and Dali.
