Zabljak Crnojeviña Fortress

N 42°19.025', E 19°9.393'
2011-09-07
Our rating: 6.80
Overall rating:

The Zabljak Crnojeviña Fortress stands on the site of a medieval city that was the capital of the Crnojevic dynasty in the XV century. At that time Montenegro began a war with Turkey and lose the fortress. Then the locals were trying to conquer the fortress for centuries, but without success. Only in 1878, after the Berlin Congress, it was taken from the Turks.

The fortress stands on a tall hill, on the river banks. It is now in ruins and is a tourist attraction. The access to the territory is free, but you have to climb the hill past an interesting cemetery. A beautiful scenery opens from the fortress walls. Pay attention to the mountains located near the Skadar Lake.
