Ostrog Monastery. , Montenegro
Note

A monastery built into the rock - surely an impressive site. As you drive up the hairpin turns and up the mountain road, a tiny white dot appears high up, and it gets bigger as you make your way up. The sight is more impressive from down below, as the breathtaking architecture is displayed in full glory. The monastery itself is quite small and is a well-known pilgrimage site for Orthodox Christians. There is an amazing view down the valley from it. If you are travelling by car you can drive all the way up to the monastery and from there you can follow the New Road, which as the name implies is a newly made, very nice road leading to capital Podgorica.
