At the starting point of the Zeta Valley we find the Glava Zeta Hillclimb. It is near this point that the river Zeta surfaces and flows towards Podgorica in the southeast. The hillclimb is aptly named as Glava Zete can roughly be translated as “Beginning of the river Zete”. The hillclimb however, goes the opposite way to the northwest towards Nikšić.
Nikšić is the second largest city of the country. Curiously the international tourist agency of Montenegro does not mention Nikšić as an interesting place to visit. If we are to believe that perhaps a better starting point would be the capital Podgorica, less than 40km from the hillclimb.
What is certainly recommened to visit is the Ostrog Monastery some 15km away. The largest pelgrimsite of the Balkan is dedicated to St. Basil. In the seventeenth century this Orthodox saint decided to build his new monastery in the vertical mountainside at Ostrog. Over the years it has grown into a breathtaking complex of buildings.
