This is a still working monastery perched 900 meters or so above the Zeta Valley. It is the most important religious site for Orthodox Christians in Montenegro. It is quite impressive, though not as spectacular as other mountain top monasteries, for example, in Greece.

Located in the western part of the Niksic Field, this Lake has a specific beauty of complex karst hydrography. It is characterised by a large number of Islands and peninsulas, as well as wild and intact nature. The Lake is rich in fish, and attracts a large number of fishermen.
Beautiful and serene lake. Easy to get there. Was wonderful to stroll around the place. Highly recommended for a short visit.

The artificial lake Krupac is popular among the citizens of Niksic, as well as many tourists, especially during the summer months, which is why many call it the "Niksic Sea". It is located 5.5km west of Niksic and it is the greatest swimming area in the country's interior. It is 2.5km long, 2.8km wide, and two Islands rest on it - Little and Big Zakrnjak.
Head towards kocani to get to the side of the dam with steps leading to the lake. Water is crystal clear and after an initial shock not too cold. Also a beach at the end with a restaurant. Felt very much a locals hideaway from the crowds. Well worth a trip.

The beautiful Orthodox Cathedral, near the King Nikola Palace, is located at Petrova Glavica. It is dedicated to the fallen Montenegrin and Herzegovinian warriors in the liberation wars against the Ottomans, and their names can be seen on memorial plaques in the interior, which was not painted with icons.
Wonderful place and highly recommended. Has something for everyone be it for those seeking beautiful architecture, piece of history or divinity.

This oasis of peace, as they call it, will enchant you with its vast green areas stretching over 15.000 m2 creating a view over a beautiful 25m long stone bridge. A mini zoo and restaurants attract families with children, but also individuals, youth and all those looking to escape the noise of the city.
Very nice place for children and parents. River, playground, beautiful nature, animals, safe for children, etc.

The Niksic Fortress was erected on the foundation of a Romanic-gothic Cathedral. When the Ottomans invaded and conquered the city, they captured the existing Citadel, finished its construction and used it as the symbol of their power.
It took us some driving around to find the entrance and parking to this fortress (no signs)- it seemed deserted (maybe because it was October?), so we just had a look and drove to our next stop.

The old road from Podgorica to Niksic leads to the Emperor's Bridge, which rises above the river Zeta, attracting attention with its 269m long figure with 18 archs.
Must see. Really exiting. Not on the msin tourist path so not many tourists and no crowd. Good for taking photos.

The archaeological location Crvena Stijena is situated near the village Petrovici, 30km away from Niksic. This location, with 31 different separate cultural layers, is the deepest one in Europe. It is believed that life in the Crvena Stijena area began over 100000 years ago.
Памятник эпохи палеолита, но люди жили здесь вплоть до бронзового века. Много отлично сохранившихся артефактов, поэтому пещера является местом научных исследований и паломничества ученых. Надеюсь, что она закрыта для посещения туристов, да и ехать туда уж очень далеко: на границу с Боснией и Герцеговиной. Как можно понять из вышеизложенного, мы там не были, но артефакты из раскопок пещеры хранятся в городском музее Никшича во дворце короля Николы.

Monuments like this are unique as they both present some special events and people and are interesting as peace of art themselves. This one is located next to the cemetary, but also near you find nice walks in the nature. If you go through Niksis, you should stop by and see this unusual place.

One of the most important preserved monuments of medieval Onogost, this church is specific for its 16th century frescos of extraordinary artistic quality.
A calm, beautiful and serene place. Quite conveniently located as well. Excellent architecture and well maintained.
