Park Petrovića – A park for relaxing

Just a 10-minute from the city center and situated across the Morača river lies Park Petrovića, a pretty, landscaped garden space in which the monumental Petrović Palace is situated. The Petrović-Njegoš family were Montenegro’s ruling dynasty from 1696-1918 before the monarchy was abolished and the country became a part of Serbia.

Petrović Palace (check out the article) is said to have once been the family’s winter home in the city, and thus the mansion and its gardens have a compelling history. Wander around the cozy gardens where Montenegro’s princes and princesses would once have played before visiting the palace, which is today a contemporary art exhibition showcasing original pieces from the Yugoslavian period. Also, it’s a place where people gather to organise small events, concerts and cultural evenings during the summer.

I like to spend time in this park especially because there’s a small stage with seats where people often play the guitar or have a comedy play.
