Due to the tumultuous war history and frequent devastations, the town has been deprived of most of its old buildings. Over the last ten years, the town has been developing fast, making it a modern, administrative and business centre of the country. Cetinje is the old capital of Montenegro, with immense historical heritage. It was founded in 15th century.
