The video presents the summary of the our tour guided by a local guide through Cetinje, the historical capital of Montenegro. We are acquainted with the history, spirituality and culture of Montenegrins by reviewing the main historical buildings and the personalities that inhabited them. The tour, like a time machine, opens a legendary world, ended a century ago.
At the end of the 15th century, under pressure from Turkish and Venetian invaders, Ivan Crnojević, religious and political leader, moved the country's capital to Cetinje, a natural fortified place at the foot of the Lovćen Mountains (Black, hence the name of the country). The princes court was built in 1482, and in 1484 the Crnojević fortified monastery was completed, in which his son, Đurađ Crnojević, will set up the first printing house of the southern Slavs. The court and the monastery will be completely destroyed by the Turks in 1692. Cetinje will begin to shine again under the leadership of bishop Danilo Petrović Njegoš, founder of the Petrović dynasty (with 7 rulers from 1697-1918, 5 of them being Vladika = bishop) but also builder (1701-1704) of the imposing Cetinje Monastery. Despite being devastated by the Turks several times, the monastic complex has been rebuilt and expanded each time, becoming the center of Montenegro's cultural, spiritual and political life. The church of the monastery houses the relics of Saint Peter of Cetinje, of the bishop-ruler Danilo Petrović Njegoš (the founder of the monastery) and of the Grand Duke Mirko, the father of King Nikola I Petrovic. Also, in the monastery museum is the hand of St. John the Baptist and a part of the cross on which Jesus was crucified. After Danilo Petrović Njegoš followed Sava Petrović Njegoš, Vasilije Petrović Njegoš, Petar I Petrović Njegoš, Petar II Petrović Njegoš, Danilo I Petrović Njegoš (he separates the ecclesiastical function from the political one, becoming Prince of Montenegro Petrov) and finally Nikola I Petrović Njegoš. Under Petar II Petrovic Njegoš (1813-1851; ruler, bishop, poet, philosopher) Cetinje, but also Montenegro know important modernizations and also from him remained the Biljard Palace (Museum), bringing the first billiard table in Cetinje. The last of the dynasty's list, but perhaps most important, is Nikola I Mirkov Petrović Njegoš (1841 - 1921), who reigned as sovereign prince (1860-1910) and then as king (1910-1918). Not only did Nikola I show great political skills, playing an important role on the European political scene, but he was also a profound reformer (administration, culture) of the country. Montenegro was recognized as an independent state at the Berlin Congress in 1878. Nikola I practically rebuilt (urbanized) Cetinje in the form we see today (the historical city), the former palaces and embassies now becoming cultural institutions. Nikola I also closes a historical cycle by building in 1886 the Ćipur Church (with the role of princes chapel) exactly on the ruins of the former monastery built in 1484 by Ivan Crnojević, the founder of the city. Exiled after the First World War, his and his wife's remains will be re-buried with all honors in 1989 in this church (Ćipur). In 1942, Josip Broz Tito, the communist leader of Yugoslavia, moved the capital of Montenegro from Cetinje to Titograd (today Podgorica).
Our quick tour through the historical part of Cetinje city points to the following objectives: Ćipur Church, Cetinje Monastery, Biljard Palace (Museum) of Petar II Petrovic Njegoš, Palace (Museum) of King Nikola I Petrović Njegoš, Ethnographic Museum (former Serbian Embassy), the former Girls' School, the Music Academy (the former embassy of Great Britain) and the Blue Palace (residence of the Crown Prince Danilo I, now the seat of the Montenegro presidency). Unfortunately, we did not see the Vlaska Church (Vlach's Church), which we, the Romanians, would be interested in, the church being built at 1450 by the Vlachs (Romanians) shepherds, now disappeared population.

Na Cetinju se nalaze tri velike hrišćanske svetinje.
U Cetinjskom manastiru čuvaju se: ruka Sv. Jovana Krstitelja (ruka koja je krstila Isusa Hrista) i čestica Časnog Krsta Gospodnjeg (dio krsta na kojem je razapet Isus Hrist); a u zgradi Vladinog doma u Plavoj kapeli: ikona Presvete Bogorodice Filermose.
Tri velike hrišćanske relikvije prešle su dug istorijski put do Cetinja. Od Jerusalima, preko Carigrada stigle su u posjed Krstaških vitezova Sv. Jovana Krstitelja koji su ih prilikom svojih pohoda zaplijenili. U početku su se nalazile na Rodosu, a zatim od sredine 16. vijeka na Malti. Tako su i vitezovi Sv. Jovana prozvani Malteškim redom. U vrijeme Napoleonovih ratova general Malteškog reda predao je svetinje na čuvanje ruskom caru Pavlu I Romanovu 1799. godine. Svetinje su čuvane na dvoru Romanovih u Petrogradu sve do Boljševičke revolucije u Rusiji 1918. godine, kada ih je iz Rusije iznijela Marija Fjodorovna, majka imperatora Nikolaja II, u Kopenhagen (koja je bila danska princeza). Pred kraj svog života predala ih je ruskom mitropolitu Antoniju Hrapovickom, koji je svetinje preko Berlina donio u Beograd. Tada su predate na dar kralju Aleksandru Karađorđeviću u znak zahvalnosti ruskog naroda i ruske crkve za prijem velikog broja izbjeglica iz Rusije. Svetinje su čuvane u kraljevskom dvoru u Beogradu do 1941. godine kada ih je kralj Petar II s patrijarhom Gavrilom Dožićem ostavio upravi manastira Ostrog na čuvanje. Iz Ostroga svetinje su 1952. godine prenijete u državni trezor. Iz trezora ruka Sv. Jovana Krstitelja i dio Časnog Krsta predate su tadašnjem mitropolitu Crnogorsko-primorskom Danilu Dajkoviću u Cetinjski manastir, a ikona Presvete Bogorodice Filerimosa 1978. godine predata je Narodnom muzeju na Cetinju gdje se i danas nalazi.
Ove svetinje se ubrajaju među najpoznatije hrišćanske relikvije i nalaze se u zlatnim okvirima, koji su ukrašeni dijamantima, brilijantima, rubinima i safirima.
In Cetinje are three great relics of Christianity. In the Cetinje Monastery are kept the hand of Saint John the Baptist (who baptized Christ) and the piece of the True Cross (piece of the cross on which Christ was crucified); in the Government House, in the Blue Chapel is kept Icon of Lady of Philerme.
Three great relics of Christianity had a long historical way until they arrived to Cetinje. From Jerusalem, through Constantinople, they became property of Cross-Knights of St John the Baptist who confiscated them on their campaigns. Firstly, they were placed in Rodos, and from the middle of 16th century at Malta. So, the knights of the St John the Baptist were called The Maltese Cross-Knights. During Napoleon's wars, the general of Maltese Cross-Knights gave the relics to Russian emperor Pavle I Romanov in 1779. Relics were kept at Romanov's court in Petrograd till Bolshevik revolution in Russia in 1799. Maria Fiodorovna, mother to Nikolaj II took them to Copenhagen. At the end of her life, she gave it to the Russian metropolitan Antonie Hrapovicki who brought them to Belgrade through Berlin. They were given as a gift to the King Aleksandar Karadjordjevic, as a gratefulness of Russian people and church for accepting a great number of Russian refugees. Relics were kept in the royal court in Belgrade till 1941, when King Petar II , with metropolitan Gavrilo Dozic gave them to the authorities of the monastery Ostrog. They were moved to National safe-box, the hand of the St John the Baptist and the piece of the True Cross are given to the Montenegrin metropolitan Danilo Dajkovic in Cetinje Monastery, while Icon of the Lady of Philerme was given to the National Museum in Cetinje in 1978 where is kept today. These relics are among the most famous of Christianity. They are kept in golden frames, decorated with diamonds, rubies and sapphires.

PODGORICA - Montenegro Travel Guide | Around The World
Podgorica is the capital and largest city of Montenegro. The city was also called Titograd (Титоград) between 1946 and 1992 when Montenegro was part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY), in honour of Josip Broz Tito.
Podgorica's favourable position at the confluence of the Ribnica and Morača rivers and the meeting point of the fertile Zeta Plain and Bjelopavlići Valley has encouraged settlement. The city is close to winter ski centres in the north and seaside resorts on the Adriatic Sea.
The Podgorica Municipality contains 10.4% of Montenegro's territory and 29.9% of its population. It is the administrative centre of Montenegro and its economic, cultural and educational focus.
Podgorica is located in central Montenegro. The area is crossed with rivers and the city itself is only 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) north of Lake Skadar. The Morača and Ribnica rivers flow through the city, while the Zeta, Cijevna, Sitnica and Mareza flow nearby. Morača is the largest river in the city, being 70 m or 230 ft wide near downtown, and having carved a 20 m or 66 ft deep canyon for the length of its course through the city. Except for the Morača and Zeta, other rivers have an appearance of small creeks. The richness in bodies of water is a major feature of the city.
In contrast to most of Montenegro, Podgorica lies in a mainly flat area at the northern end of the Zeta plain, at an elevation of 40 m (130 ft). The only exceptions are hills which overlook the city. The most significant is 130.3 m (427 ft) high Gorica Hill, city's namesake, which rises above the city centre. The other hills include Malo brdo (little hill, 205.4 m or 674 ft), Velje brdo (big hill, 283 m or 928 ft), Ljubović (101 m or 331 ft) and Dajbapska gora (172 m or 564 ft). In the main, these are too steep for development and thus limit the city's expansion, especially to the north. However, urbanization has been encroaching on the lower slopes of the hills since the 1990s. Podgorica city proper has an area of 108 square kilometres (42 sq mi), while actual urbanized area is much smaller.
Podgorica is home to many Montenegrin cultural institutions and events. It hosts the Montenegrin National Theatre and a number of museums and galleries. The Montenegrin National Theatre is the most significant theatre not only in Podgorica but in all of Montenegro. Podgorica is also host to the City Theatre (Gradsko pozorište), which includes the Children's Theatre and the Puppet Theatre. Although not as rich in museums and galleries as the historic royal capital Cetinje, there are several noteworthy museums:
The Podgorica City Museum (Muzej grada Podgorice) preserves Podgorica's rich heritage. Founded in 1950, it has four categories: archaeological, ethnographic, historical and cultural-historical. It houses artefacts which date back to the Roman and Illyrian eras.
The Archaeological Research Centre (Centar za arheološka istraživanja) was founded in 1961. Its mission is to gather, classify, restore and display archaeological sites.
The Marko Miljanov Museum (Muzej Marka Miljanova) in Medun shows life in 19th century Montenegro.
The Natural History Museum (Prirodnjački muzej) displays specimens of Montenegrin flora and fauna. This museum has no exhibition space of its own, despite many proposals and initiatives to build one.
There is a notable art gallery in the Dvorac Petrovića (Petrović Castle) complex in Podgorica's largest public park. King Nicholas's castle, Perjanički Dom (House of the Honour Guard), castle chapel and surrounding buildings were converted to an art gallery in 1984. Since 1995, it has been part of the Modern Arts Centre (Centar savremenih umjetnosti) and houses approximately 1,500 works of art. The historic Cinema of Culture (Kino Kultura), which was founded in 1949, was closed in November 2008 due to continuous financial losses it generated. It was the only cinema in the city for 6 decades. The building of the former cinema will be converted to host the Podgorica City Theatre. Shortly after its closure, a Ster-Kinekor (later acquired by Cineplexx) 6-screen multiplex cinema opened at Delta City shopping mall.
A significant cultural institution of over fifty years' standing is the Budo Tomović Cultural-Informational Centre (KIC Budo Tomović). It is a public institution which organizes various artistic events, including Podgorica Cultural Summer (Podgoričko Kulturno Ljeto), FIAT – International Alternative Theatre Festival (Festival Internacionalnog Alternativnog Teatra), DEUS – December Arts Scene (Decembarska Umjetnička Scena).
