Berane

 

 

 

Berane, a town in the Lim Valley, surrounded by the mountains of Bjelasica, Cmiljevica, Turjak and Komovi. The magnificent landscape is made up of numerous mountain peaks exceeding 2,000 m, glacial lakes and a wide forest area with diverse flora and fauna.

 

It lies in the region known since medieval times as Budimlje, a prosperous country that lay in the middle of the medieval Serbian state. The town itself is actually the youngest in the whole of Montenegro. Its beginning lies in the year 1862 when the Turks built their barracks in the field near the village of Beran to watch over the region of Andrijevica, won by Montenegro in 1860.

 

The town grew around officers’ houses but the orthodox population did not settled in longer numbers until its liberation in 1912 when the Berane became the seat of district and got a high school, the only such institution in this part of the country.

 

In the memory of the revolutionary Ivan Milutinovic, on 21 July 1949, the decision was made that the town will be named after him Ivangrad. In a citizen referendum in November 1991 the old name Berane was restored.

 

By far the most interesting monument in Berane is the Monastery of Djudjevi Stupovi ("George’s Towers") the seat of the orthodox bishopric. Djurdjevi Stupovi Monastery fascinates visitors in a unique way and reveals many spiritual treasures. This monastery, located two kilometres from the town centre, is the most important historical and cultural monument in this area. It was built at the beginning of the 13th century, and was the seat of the Budimlje Bishopric, which was established by St. Sava. It was burnt down and destroyed five times and five times reconstructed and consecrated. In addition to the remains of frescoes, the monastery treasures a large cross, a masterpiece of 19th century master goldsmiths, as well as a large copy of a gospel with a silver cover.

 

Some 15km to the east of Berane is Mt Cimljevica (1963m) under which is located the Ski centre Lokve with a freshly reconstructed hotel of the same name and three ski-lifts leading to five ski pistes.
