There are several widely known orthodox religious buildings across Montenegro. The dates of their foundation (some churches were built in 9th century) and the ancient walls of church buildings retain the stories and collect true history about miraculous characteristics of the buildings themselves, as well as relics of buried saints and miraculous healing powers of monks.
Monastery Ćirilovac, located near the bottom of Bjelasica 11 km away from Kolašin, was built by Arhimandrit and an orthodox padre named Jojilo with sleeping chambers where nuns are serving. On the top of mount Bjelasica, above the monastery, Jojilo has built a chapel where he is to be buried. That chapel is exactly the same as the one in Lovćen which houses the bones of Petar Petrović Njegoš.
Monastery Ćirilovac is known for housing particles of the cross on which Christ was crucified. The monastery is also known for the relics of Saint Vasilije Ostroški that it has kept for 17 years.
Padre Jojilo is known to the public for his tales, sayings, and impressive biography. There is a number of witnesses to his healing powers (many people crippled people were able to stand on their feet and walk again; they were healed thanks to their faith in God).
Bearing in mind the difficult approach to the monastery, we organize a one day exclusive trek to visit the Monastery Ćirilovac with four wheel vehicles (jeeps).
Arrangements include renting jeeps, a meal (lunch) and desired drinks, constant presence of experienced guides who speak foreign languages and general assistance to all guests.
