General info 

In the line of medieval monasteries on Lake Skadar, the Monastery of Kom, founded by the Crnojevic family, takes special place. Built on the crest of Odrin Hill, far away from curious eyes, it is completely different from monasteries founded by the Balšić family, which are scattered throughout small forests in the Lake.

This boat tour to Kom Monastery gives you the chance to explore this important symbol of difficult political circumstances in Montenegro in the XV century.

Key words: Skadar Lake National Park, cultural boat tours, boat tours on Skadar Lake, Kom monastery boat tour, monasteries on Skadar lake

 

 

Overview of the tour 

MONASTERIES ON SKADAR LAKE

BOAT TOUR TO KOM MONASTERY

  • Short cruise through a narrow channel leading to the open lake. We pass a railway line that sits on top of the water, with the remains of the Lesendro fortress proudly overlooking the lake and mountains.
  • Kom Monastery and Church of the Virgin Mary are located on the small island of Odrinska Gora near Žabljak Crnojevića. Built between 1415 and 1427, the monastery has some of the oldest frescoes in the region. It is probably best known for the fact that this is the monastery where Montenegro’s greatest ruler, bishop and poet Petar II Petrović Njegoš was ordained as an Orthodox priest.
