    Very beautiful monastery, on amazing location in a National Park. Very nice paintings, and one of the prettiest and most elaborately carved wooden altarpieces in the Balkans

  • Excellent spiritual experience. Love at first sight. Love actually, love in every form. Finding peace has never been easier.
  • A muezzin was calling for pray from the neighboring village when we arrive. In the same time monks started to sing in the monastery, it was amazing. The complex is huge and some part is newly rebuilt (after the fire), the church is really nice, the wood carving (from one single wood) is amazing, the frescos and the ikons are interesting. The monks are happy to tell the history of the monastery (back to AC 1020).
  • The most peacefull place I have ever been to. Very high spiritual energy can be felt here. Simply a MUST. Bless you all and may God be with all of you.
  • This place is so peaceful I came here this time 1 year ago 2016, I felt so in awe of the strong feeling being here I felt I just did not want to leave I felt blessed very strong spiritually Loved this place I will definately come again.
