This day out takes you to one of the most visited Christian pilgrimage sites in the world. Ostrog Monastery was built in the 17th century, carved into a near-vertical cliff-face high up above Montenegro’s Bjelopavlići plain. It’s made up of a number of churches, including a cave-chapel that houses the tomb of the Serbian saint who founded the holy site, and another that’s still used today for weddings and baptisms. After you’ve marvelled at the mountainside monastery, you’ll be bussed to a nearby village, where a local restaurant will lay on a traditional Montenegrin lunch. In terms of the menu, you’re likely to see things like hearty veal soup, and meat roasted slowly under an iron bell.
