Still your mind in Glendalough

Glendalough’s Valley of the two lakes is known for its beautiful scenery, abundant wildlife, and archeology. This is the place you want to head to if you need a quiet place to still your mind after the hustle of bustle of city life in Dublin.

Ostrog Monastery is carved in a cliff

We aren’t here to worship, we aren’t here on a pilgrimage, we are here because this is one of the major cultural attractions in Montenegro. No one has questioned our presence here, in fact the only attention we’ve had is from some Dutch tourists.
