It was our  6th day of  sightseeing in the Balkans or Southeast of Europe. One of the countries  we visited was Montenegro. There  are some places we visited there including Budva, Cetinje, Kotor and Njegusi.  From our 4-star hotel in Budva, we drove with the bus to  Cetinje. After some hours sightseeing in this city, we  had a lunch break in Njegusi.  The Montenegrin, refers to the people of Montenegro spelled this village  as Njeguši.

I guess there are not really much to see in this village but some farmer houses, the mountains around and the nature. The weather was perfect that time because it was sunny. Our one-hour stop gave us the chance to have a little  look around, taste their famous cheese and prosciutto, stretching a bit for our next journey and do some personal necessities.

At  Restaurant  Zora. This is where we stopped  and took our lunch. They are famous with cheese  and smoked-ham  or meat. A  German lady buying a smoked ham.  We also  had the  chance to see the building where they  do the smoking  of the meat.


Njeguši is a village in southern Montenegro, within Cetinje municipality. It is located on the slopes of Mount Lovćen, within Lovćen national park.This village is best known as birthplace of Montenegro’s royal dynasty of Serbian origin the Petrović, which ruled Montenegro from 1696 to 1918.

The village is also significant for its well-preserved traditional folk architecture.

Njeguški sir and Njeguški pršut (local forms of cheese and prosciutto respectively), made solely in area around Njeguši, are genuine contributions to Montenegrin cuisine.

When coming from Njegusi to Krstac pass and continuing upwards to hills around Krstac, or downhill by the road to Kotor, you can experience wonderfull views on Boka kotorska bay, Orjen mountain and many serpentines of Kotor-Cetinje road.
