  • This was part of our transfer tour from Tirana to Skopje. We were very glad to make the visit. The route to it through mavrovo national park was beautiful. 
  • The monastery is situated on a hill, in the middle is very atmospheric. Trade-Union Organizer there living spend their time in different ways-by working with grazing sheep, or riding tractor at the House below the Hill, the monastery itself;) is a beautiful inside-amazed me with your décor with vibrant flowers (in other monasteries not seen)

  • Being little accustomed to the Orthodox monasteries and their architecture I was delighted to discover this beautiful religious building located in the heart of the green mountains of the Mavrovo national park. It has been completely renovated recently and has one of the most beautiful wooden altar carved in the world with dozens of icons richly decorated with silver and gold leaf. There is also a shop held by some priests where one can find very beautiful objects: crosses, icons, rosaries, etc. Do not miss!
