  • Monastery Ravanica monastery in Serbia and is located at the foot of Kučaj Mountains, near the village Senje at Cuprija. The monastery was founded by Prince Lazar, one of the most celebrated figures of medieval fighting against the Turks.Construction of the monastery began in 1376 and was completed five years later, in 1381. Architecturally, the building of the church in Ravanica, dedicated to the Svetog Spasa, Vaznesenja Gospodnjeg, begins a new era architecture in Serbia called "Moravia school".After the fall of the Serbian state, the monastery was destroyed several times. For the first time in 1439 years, to the early 18th century, was completely abandoned. In it, the first after 28 years returned Ravanička monk Stefan. The monastery was surrounded by great wall reinforced with towers of which today there are ruševine.During the second half of the 18th century became the center of Ravanica insurgent movement for liberation from the Turks, which has been repeatedly damaged. Charter of Prince Lazar's monastery got over 1,000 hectares of forest and more than 20 hectares of arable land. Precision was listed and the list of villages that entered the monastery grounds, one of which was the village Straight. The monastery is named after the river Ravanica near Cuprija which flows into the Velika Morava.
