Cetinje

Cetinje (Montenegrin: Цетиње, pronounced [t͡sětiɲe]) is a city in Montenegro. It is the former royal capital (prijestonica / приjестоница) of Montenegro and is the location of several national institutions, including the official residence of the president of Montenegro.[1] According to the 2011 census, the town had a population of 14,093 while the Cetinje Municipality had 16,657 residents as of 2011.[2] Cetinje is the centre of Cetinje Municipality. The city rests on a small karst plain surrounded by limestone mountains, including Mount Lovćen, the legendary mountain in Montenegrin historiography. Cetinje was founded in the 15th century and became a cradle of the culture of Montenegro. Its status as the honorary capital of Montenegro is due to its heritage as a long-serving former capital of Montenegro.
