Wild Beauty of the Lipa Cave and Budva Old Town in Kotor, Montenegro
Take a look into the Lipa cave, enjoy its wild beauty, authentic ice halls which even kings admired, and then refresh yourself with traditional prosciutto and other homemade specialties in Njeguši.
The road to cave Lipa begins in Kotor. Our first stop is in Budva, a city filled with traditional and modern content. You can take a stroll around the old city or enjoy the view from St. Mary fortress. Afterward, we made our way to the Lipa cave.
The Lipa cave is situated close to Cetinje. Its cave system consists of 2,5 km passages, halls, and galleries of exceptional beauty. The most famous of all is the hall of Njegoš which is enriched by magical ice ornaments. The beauty of this cave struck both Njegoš and king Nikola who presented the cave to other officials with pride.
We then continued our trip towards an old village called Njeguši. The enchanting ambiance of this place with its ancient landmarks is a perfect place for relaxation and refreshment with the help of original prosciutto made according to traditional recipes from the XV century, homemade cheese, and other authentic specialties.
Heading back to Kotor we take the old Austro-Hungarian road. It's quite a wavy road with sharp turns - hairpin turns with amazing views onto the mountains and the sea, which makes this road all the more interesting. We then make one last stop to completely breathe in this whole experience at the panoramic views of the Bay of Kotor.
