The monastery does not pay to enter, you only pay if you want to put some candles to offer prayers or buy religious souvenirs. Plus special place to put the candles, because the monastery has caught fire because of the candles, It has a basic holy water.

Ostrog It has a car close, will only have to walk a 10 minutes of stairs, but who have difficulty walking or are with small children can stop at another nearest parking.

We stayed there for about two hours and we would have lunch at a restaurant right near the mountain base, the restaurant is also a hotel for those who will visit the monastery, the hotel restaurant is the Koliba Bogetici, as it is also in the high valley, It has a beautiful view. We ate each regional dishes that is a type of meat jelly roll Milanese, a delight and, the other dish were divine a stuffed squid, the dishes were huge and cheap.
