Medun is located approximately 12 kilometers northeast of Podgorica, in the Kuči region. It is known for the archaeological complex consisting of the remains of the Illyrian city of Meteon, the church of St. Nicholas, and the birthplace of Marko Miljanov, a famous hero and writer who is now commemorated in a museum in the town. Meteon was one of the centers of the Illyrian tribe Labeata, which ruled over the entire Skadar Basin. It was founded at the end of the 4th or the beginning of the 3rd century BC on a difficult-to-access ridge dominating the Medun field. Today, only parts of the massive defensive walls built in the so-called Cyclopean technique are visible. The remains of the Medun city, with sporadically preserved angular towers and ramparts, mostly belong to the medieval Turkish fortress. Next to the church, there are the graves of Marko Miljanov and his wife Stefa, and below, on a saddle pass, there is the birthplace of Marko Miljanov Popović, who was a duke, a warrior, a statesman, and a writer—one of the most significant figures in Montenegrin history of the 19th century.
