The Palace of King Nikola sits at the southern end of Trg Dvorski. Prior to becoming king in 1910, Nikola was a military leader and poet (as well as a prince, of course), and his old palace is full of regal bric-a-brac. Opposite this is the Ethnographic Museum, which mainly features nineteenth-century costumes. Down the road in Trg Revolucie you’ll find the Biliarda, once the residence of King Petar II, and named after a billiard table – still visible today – that he once had hauled here from Kotor. Near the Biliarda you’ll find the National Museum, worth visiting for its first-floor art gallery, and nestled into the hillside across the square is Cetinje Monastery. All these sites are open daily 9am–5pm, and can be visited on a €10 combined ticket, or cost from €3 to €5 each.
