Interesting but not worth the visit unless you are knowledgeable about it or have a guide. This is Serbian area.

Even though I am not a Christian, I enjoyed the historical aspects of the tour of the church. I have visited numerous UNESCO sites, and this is quite unique given the dates of the frescoes, the location and historical circumstances in which it has survived....More

Our first visit of the church was during a mass. We could not walk around but the singing accompanying the mass was a special experience. On a second visit a few days later we explored the the medieval frescoes that are in very good condition.

Its a medieval monastery, with gorgeous frescoes covering every inch of the inside. Takes you right back to the 14th century.

A very interesting place for the christian history in Kosovo and the multi-religion country as well. Wonderful architecture of the buildings in a large square with park and houses for the nun. Overwelving painting insite of the monastry.

My view might be hindered by the renovations that were taking place for the majority of the inside of the church and the fact there was no one around to provide information but i wasn't impressed. The monasteries at Peja and Decani were fantastic and...More
