  • Holy places in the land of plenty. But this is one of those which, once visited in Montenegro, visit necessarily. It does not matter whether you believe or don't believe. Place namolennoe and here always gone and will go the people to venerate our Holy ancestors, put here for the health of their candles and their relatives, for those who are no longer with us ... Everyone comes here with your thoughts ... But go away from here with a sense of tranquility.

  • The monastery would be interesting, too bad that the monks and the lay staff present are very rude, the exact opposite of the Ostrog monastery and of the modern Church of St. Peter in Podgorica

  • The architecture is grand. The church is small. The interiors are beautiful. Smells of beeswax which is always a delight.
