The ruins of an ancient fortress Haj-Nekhay are on the mountain of the same name, at an altitude of 180 meters above sea level. Even in 1542 there were the first mention of the fortress. "Beware, do not be afraid" - so the translation is the title of Haj-Nekhay.

From the outside, it seems that the castle stands on a cliff on three sides it is surrounded by impenetrable walls and high cliffs. To get inside, you can only on the west side, where there is the entrance, the other walls impregnable. Climb directly to the entrance can only be a winding and narrow path, which originates in the left side of the mountain.

The fortress could accommodate for up to 900 people. For several centuries, the fortress passed into the possession of it to the Venetians, then to the Turks conquer it in result of bloody battles, so the territory can see the buildings of three different cultures: Turkish, Venetian and Montenegrin.
