  • We visited in late September. Through the Bazaar from Peja, along the River Road toward the West (upriver), walk less than 30 minutes. I walked toward the West anyway, to no particular signs of ordinary residential area from the Middle Road the wrong way and anxiety. Also had a "passport check at the entrance" on information gathered prior to, but especially show a passport but not put in. Admission was free. Internal frescoes and the pain part, demanding to keep the world heritage site and although I felt. Church property itself is well kept and beautiful contrast of red walls and garden Church.

  • Walk West from the center of Peja, martyrs square to 20 minutes. Where the road divides into two checkpoints of KFOR (Kosovo security force). So, bring your passport and several hundred meters in addition to arrive at the entrance of the Abbey. From the checkpoint to the monastery entrance one Chan took us. Here are slowly walking and sat down on the road, while scratching around the ears on the hind legs "slow I wish I come quickly" of humorous gesture. Guidebook entry free of charge, but requires two euros. Gave me a brochure of Japan. It is a vivid red walls monastery. Archbishop Danilo II 2 enlightenment, and as a 前堂, back has become from the sanctuary of the Basilica of St. Dimitrie and odigitoria students God woman of three biggest church of the Holy Apostles, the left and right in the middle (outside another small St. Nicholas Cathedral). Inside were covered equipment, various frescoes and sarcophagi, but easier to understand thanks to Japan-language pamphlet, survived. It is unfortunately lighting is slightly too dark and difficult to watch.
