This Cathedral is hard to miss as any walk around the Old Town will inevitably take you to St Tryphon Square & this building. Although suffering damage in earthquakes - hence the spires are not identical - it has been rebuilt in the original Romanesque style of 1166 when it was consecrated. Interior has magnificent frescoes & of course plenty of gilt religious artifacts. On the mountain side of St John, built into the fortifications, is a chapel "Our Lady of Remedy" ... how easy it is to visit I can't personally tell you! The word is 'tough'.

If you have any interest in medieval history or one to spark the interest in someone young, A visit to the old town is worth far more than the couple euros of admission. For me, even walking through the entryway, the old portcullis, was tinged with excitement. Through the entryway, the space opens up and takes you to the official entry on the left to the old town and what is, essentially, an outdoor medieval museum consisting of the remnants of the fortress and included exhibits. Having visited many such sites in other European countries, What sets this one apart is the extent to which it is unstructured an unmarked allowing you to freely wander through the available structures. One word of advice: if it is near the end of the day and they are closing down, make sure you leave before you get locked in as the three of us did, leaving us to have to scale a wall and perform some nimble gymnastics in order to escape The old fortress.

A renowned difficult to access fortress, located about 10km north-east of Podgorica, Medun was erected between the 4th and 3rd centuries BC. Also known as Meteon, this ancient town was the seat of the Illyric tribe Labeata who ruled the Skadar basin. Today only some parts of the defensive walls are visible, and the town remains mostly belong to a medieval Turkish fortress. The fortress remains house St. Nicholas' Church, which was built in the 18th century, and this historic location is also known as birthplace of Marko Miljanov, Montenegrin hero and writer.

On arrival in Virpazar, the view over the lake and surrounding mountains is magnificent. The dark, rugged peaks reach from the green lake to the soft clouds and the hillside is dotted with grey stone houses. We were short on time so decided to climb up to Besac Castle, appreciate the spectacular vista and enjoy a spot of lunch. We paid 1 Euro each to enter the castle, which was worth it just for the views over the lake.
