Cetinje is the historic and current Royal capital of Montenegro. The city is located in the field under the mountain Lovcen, at an average altitude of 670 m.
Because of its authentic architecture and a large number of historic buildings, relics, monasteries, churches and museums, this city was named "museum city".
Gospodar ( Master) Ivan Crnojevic was forced to move from city of Zabljak in Zeta plain to inaccessible area due to Turks, first to Obod 1475 then deeper to the base of mountain Lovcen. In Cetinje field in 1482 he built his palace and two years later the monastery. The new capital was named after a little river that was flowing through Cetinje field. Cetinje, besides being a secular, became the spiritual cent - er. Ivan’s son, Djurdje Crnojevic, founded first Cyrillic print - ing house in the Slavic south, Crnojevic print - ing house. That printing house was founded just 38 years after Gutenberg’s and it was operating be - tween 1492 and 1496. Crnojevic printing house printed 5 unique and high-quality incunables.
