Biogradska Gora national Park is situated in the north-eastern part of Montenegro, between the Tara and Lim rivers in the central part of the Bjelasica mountain massif. The most important natural feature of the Park is its primeval forest which is one of the last three primeval forests in Europe. Some of the trees are over five hundred years old. 

 

It has been given the highest status of protected reserve. In fact, it has been a protected area since 1878 when it became the so-called Reserve of King Nikola. It contains Biograd Lake and 6 other glacial lakes as well as a great diversity of flora and fauna. From Mt Bjelasica, there is a spectacular view over the whole National Park.

The Piva monastery was located near the source of the Piva river in northern Montenegro. It was built in the 16th century. It was moved stone by stone in 1975 when the Piva River was dammed to generate hydrological power. It is now located a few km away from Pluzine. The Piva monastery is one of the most important Orthodox monasteries in Montenegro.
