While billled as King Nicola's Palace, it is really a large home. It has now been converted into a musuem. Cetinje was once the capital of Montenegro. Some of the various foreign embassy offices/homes still exist. Enjoy.

A fraction of what was left from the original "castle". Well upkeep. No photos or video. The guide did a great job about King Nichola's family.

Quite fascinating museum of the old royal palace of King Nikola. The rooms are richly decorated, the whole palace very well maintained, the tour gives you a glimpse of how the royalty lived a century ago.
