Montenegro - Cetinje Historic Core

"Cetinje Royal Capital covers the area of 910 km2, which equals 6.6% of the total area of the State of Montenegro. It is situated in between Boka Kotorska Bay to the West, Budva's Riviera to the South, Skadar Lake basin and Zeta-Bjelopavlići plain to the East, Nikšić plain and Bijele Rudine to the North. It borders seven municipalities (Kotor, Tivat, Budva, Bar, Podgorica, Danilovgrad and Nikšić). Generally speaking, Cetinje region can be divided into three larger, spatially independent areas: 'Katunska površ' or 'Katunski krš', Mount Lovćen range and its continental piedmont area and Skadar Lake basin's Western ridge."
