About 45 minutes drive northwest of Montenegro’s capital, Podgorica, is the amazing Ostrog Monastery. The monastery is built into a cliff about 900 meters above the valley and is the most important site in Montenegro for Orthodox Christians. It was built in 1665 under the direction of St. Basil, a bishop from Herzegovina, who brought his monks here after the Ottoman Turks destroyed their previous monastery. St. Basil’s bones are carefully covered by a shroud and are on display within the monastery. Just the fact that they were able to build this place is astounding.
