Monte Mare Travel
In the past, the inhabitants of these areas were mainly engaged in cattle breeding and living a semi-nomad lifestyle, so it is very interesting to visit this area and hear about the customs and history of this mountain tribe. It is located at a distance of Podgorica, about 30 km.
The first landmark in this area is the monument to Novak Milošev. Novak Milošev Vujadinović (1835-1892) is a great Montenegrin hero, who especially distinguished himself in the battle of Fundina on August 2, 1876, when he killed 17 Turkish heads. For such courage, the Russian emperor handed him a diamond-engraved sword, which is now kept in the National Museum in Cetinje.
Further on, there is the most significant fortress – the Old Town of Medun (Meteon), which is located at the 13th kilometre northeast of Podgorica and dates from the ancient period. It was built between the 4th and 3rd centuries BC, first as a fortress, later as a city. In terms of construction, there are very interesting the two lower graves in the rock on the way from the lower to the upper city. Studies point to the conclusion that in this part were performed rituals related to the serpent cult that represented mythical ancestor in Illyria.
At the foot of the walls of this city and fort, lived our famous literate, military leader, tribal leader, Montenegrin Duke and hero Marko Miljanov (1833-1901). He was buried there, in the acropolis, in front of a small church. The Duke’s title was given to him by the Prince of Montenegro Nikola I Petrović. He was leader of the city for a time after the liberation of Podgorica (1878).
