Kuca Svetog Petra Cetinjskog

House of St. Petar Cetinjski

At the entrance to Rijeka Crnojevića, just above Danilo’s bridge on the right side is the oldest preserved house (built between 1810. and 1815.) which remembers the much more glorious days of this town near Skadar Lake. It is a house that once served for the reconciliation of quarreling fraternities and for the prayer of its famous inhabitants – the house of St. Petar Cetinjski or the Vladika’s house.

Petar Prvi Petrović Njegoš used this building as a winter house because the weather of the Rijeka Crnojevića was milder than the one in Cetinje, so the Petrovićs often stayed there.

Petar Prvi, the Montenegrin ruler and metropolitan, is considered one of the most important figures in the history of Montenegro due to his work on the establishment of the Montenegrin state and the adoption of the first written laws in the country.
