IPTC INFO
Caption2009 Carnival City Congress visit the mountain valley of the Kings for song dance & toasts ___________________ Cetinje is a town of immense historical heritage founded in the 15th century. It became the center of Montenegrin life and both a cradle of Montenegrin and an Eastern Orthodox religious center. It is because of its heritage as a long-term Montenegrin capital that it is today the honorary capital of Montenegro. The city nestles on a small karst plain surrounded by limestone mountains including Mt. Lovćen the Black Mountain from which Montenegro gets its name. The founding of Cetinje was conditioned by the historical political and economic background in the 15th century. Wars of conquest led by the Turks forced Ivan Crnojević the ruler of Zeta at that time to move the capital of his country from the fortified town of Žabljak to the inaccessible parts to Obod in 1475 and soon after it at the foot of Mt. Lovćen. In the field of Cetinje in 1482 his court was built and two years later the monastery was built as well. By building the court and the monastery a new capital was founded. Its name was Cetinje. It was named after the River Cetina that runs through it.
