  • Cosy shrine with a warm atmosphere. The opportunity to venerate the relics (the right hand of John the Baptist). We missed immediately (priest launches groups). Around the monastery is a nice Park where you can walk. Recommend to come down below, where there are cafes and watch the famous blacksmith's dancer. A very Jolly grandfather, like Santa Claus, under the sounds of roknrolla, forges a horseshoe and whistles. Can engrave a name on them or anything. Very positive grandfather!

  • Believe it or not, but this place evokes AWE. See saying John is possible only on major holidays, we failed. Definitely worth a visit.

  • 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.
