It definitely is a detour if your intent is only to come to this place, but the the national park surrounding it is beautiful and it deserves some attention to. It's really well treated and in use. Go for lunch im the restaurant in the beginning of the climb.
Excellent spiritual experience. Love at first sight. Love actually, love in every form. Finding peace has never been easier.
Beautiful place, beautiful nature around. Amazing
Unfortunately this quite beautiful monastery mixes politics with faith. The flag of a big Macedonian party, VMRO-DPME, are to be found everywhere, and I don't understand that people of faith can accept that the monastery is used for political gain.
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).
