Moraca Monastery, Kolasin

4.7
#2 of 15 in Things to do in Kolasin
Moraca Monastery holds a copy of the original Oktoih--the first printed book of the southern Slavs in the Cyrillic alphabet from 1493. Look for the engraving above the Romanesque main portal, which testifies that Stefan Vukanovic, the Grand Prince of Zeta and the grandson of Stefan Nemanja, founded the monastery in 1252. The complex features two churches and lodgings for travelers. The 13th-century frescos in a chamber on the right side of the central apse illustrate 11 scenes from the life of the prophet Elijah. You also can see a mural depicting the prophet in the wilderness with a raven that is bringing him food.

  • Monastery of Serbian orthodox church from 13 century is one very nice settlement to visit. The true example of the simple life of the monks that live from their work. They have their own place where they live, simple but nice church, library, fishpond, they produce honey and different sorts of the fruit .. the icon ,the ravens feed the Prophet Elijah" from xvI century is on of the most famous icons in this part of the world
