Welcome to Lovćen National Park

The park’s main hub is Ivanova Korita, near its centre, where there are a few eateries and accommodation providers and, in winter, a beginners' ski slope. Njeguši, on the park's northern edge, is famous for being the home village of the Petrović dynasty and for making the country’s best pršut (smoke-dried ham) and sir (cheese). Roadside stalls sell both, along with honey.
