Nikšić is the second largest city in Montenegro. In Nikšić proper there are a few sites to see but most of the really interesting places are located on the way to or from the city (such as the Ostrog Monastery).
One hour by bus from Podgorica, €3 for one way, frequent busses. Scenic ride.
- Ostrog Monastery (15 km south-east on the road to the capital Podgorica, (8km from the village of Bogetići)). Ostrog Monastery, especially Upper Ostrog is one of the most popular religious touristic destinations in Montenegro. Built in XVII century.
One of the most popular beers in Montenegro, Nikšićko beer, is brewed in Nikšić. It is definitely a good choice instead of expensive imported beers.
