Cetinje Monastery, white morning... (with Nela under chestnut alley) :-)

There, by the River Cetina, which sank and vanished later on, the Montenegrin ruler built himself the court (1482) and proclaimed this place the capital. Two years later, he erected a monastery and moved Zetan metropolitan office from Vranjina to Cetinje 1485. It already constituted a city, the secular and spiritual centre of the "Land of Black Mountains" - Montenegro.

Ivan's son Djordje, orginally at Obod and later at Cetinje Monastery, founded a printing house in 1493 - the first in the South Slavs. Several books of religious content and of exceptional beauty were printed here in the Cyrillic alphabet.

Unfortunately, the Crnojevic state ceased to exist in 1496. The Crnojevic monastery was burnt down and demolished by the Turks in 1692 and the new Cetinje monastery was built in 1706-1712 by the founder of the Njegos dynasty - Vladika Danilo (prince-bishop). This monastery, too, was devastated three times...
