    Moraca Monastery: the gem in the Montenegrin Mountains.

    Moraca Monastery (serb. Manastir Morača) is a Serbian orthodox monastery, located in the mountainous Moraca river-valley in the central part of Montenegro. It is one of the most monumental and the most significant monuments of medieval Serbian Orthodox not only in Montenegro, but also on the Balkans. The monastery belongs to the Serbian Orthodox Church and is an active monastery of Montenegro and the Seaside diocese. Located in a picturesque setting on the banks of mountain canyon of Moraca river (in some places the canyon reaches the height of 1000 meters) in the municipality of Kolasin, the monastery is popular with pilgrims, numerous tourists who come here every day. And because of its close location near the highway, the visit of it includes in almost all the program of tourist routes and excursions. Monks do not mind all that - they generously share the beauty, tranquility and spirituality of this place, and even try to help the pilgrims as one as able. For example, in the territory of the monastery, you can find a free toilet, buy the monastery honey and rakija (Montenegrin brandy).
    Moraca Monastery (serb. Manastir Morača)
     History. Moraca monastery is one of the most unusual medieval monuments in Montenegro.

    Moraca monastery was founded in 1252 on the right bank of the river Moraca by Prince Stefan, the son of the great Serbian King Vukan II Nemanjic, who was later buried in the local church of the Assumption of the mother of God. According to legend, the complex was built with a special yellow stone, which was quarried far away from this place. Residents of the region lined up in the column of tens of kilometers long and passed stones from hand to hand to the construction site.

     Lifehack: still on the front, above the western portal there is an inscription indicating the year of construction - 1252.

    In the XVI century, with the invasion of the Ottoman soldiers who sought to wipe out reminders of other religions, the monastery was ruined and destructed: for military purposes, a lead roof was demolished, which resulted in the damage and loss of many original frescoes. In this regard, the monks had to leave the friary for a while. In 1574, the main church of the monastery was restored by a village chief Vukic Vuchetich, internal frescoes were re-painted in the 1577-78, and the outer temple painting was executed in 1616, by the artist George Mitrofanovich. Small church of St. Nicholas was rebuilt in 1639 and painted by renowned Kozma master. At the beginning of the XVIII century master Dimitriy painted the church of Our Lady of Assumption, and his son finished a large icon depicting the life of St. John the Baptist. The last layer of frescoes was completed by Kotor masters from Gylf school at the beginning of the XVIII century.

    In the XVIII century the monastery once again was attacked by the Turks and the monks were forced to fight with weapons in their hands. It is known that Archimandrite Mitrofan led the battle against the Turks and successfully repelled their attack, for which a gold medal for bravery was awarded. Later Mitrofan became a Metropolitan. From then onwards, the complex of Moraca continued to be restored, subjected to change, and its current copper roof, it got only in 1935.

    During its centuries-old existence Moraca monastery played a significant role in people's lives. It witnessed important historical events, like the recent, as well as the distant past. Here sentences were handed down, important decisions were made, books were copied and reading and writing were taught.
    Architecture of the monastic complex of Moraca in Montenegro
    The architecture of the monastery complex Moraca.

    The architectural complex of the Monastery Moraca includes:
    • A large cathedral church of the Assumption of Our Lady (the Assembly);
    • A Small church of St. Nicholas;
    • Several buildings with monks' cells;
    • Accommodations for travelers;
    • Rich gardens and farms. 
    Here you will see an apiary, and sheep herds, turkeys and ducks - and all this against the background of beautiful nature and relaxing murmur of a mountain river, which rushes its emerald water somewhere below. The church is a typical example of religious architecture of the ancient Serbian state Rashka (the so-called "Raska style") with a noticeable influence of the Romanesque tradition. Both churches are made of stone and has a large hall, crowned by a single dome - nave. The external simplicity is offset by rich interior - frescoes and icons of the monastery is considered one of the finest examples of Serbian and Byzantine wall painting.

    1. The Church of the Assumption of the Mother of God - the Assembly.

    Church of the Assumption, which is one of the oldest buildings, built in the style of "Raska school" and modeled on the so-called "Zadužbina" - structures built on bequests for the salvation of souls bequeathed ("Zadužbina" - that is, "for the soul"). It is a large building with one room, a barrel vault, a semicircular gallery, choir and dome. Unlike churches of seaside style, the main temple of monastery Moraca is plastered. The main entrance is built of gray marble in the Romanesque style. The gray marble tiled the Church of the Assumption of the Mother of God itself. The large ambo in front of the Holy Doors is made of multi-colored stone. In the dome over the ambo hangs a large Chandelier "Bogorodicino kolo", under which once people vowed during the trial, when it was impossible to gather evidence in another way. In the middle part of the church there is a stone sarcophagus - the tomb, where the churchwarden (headman) of the monastery - Prince Stefan is buried. The gem of the church is a double door at the entrance to the middle temple, decorated with ivory. A chair, a table and a cane, which, according to legend, belonged to the St. Sava were also decorated with it. These items are considered to be the most beautiful and the most complex and original samples of marquetry.

    In addition to architecture, paintings have particular importance – on one of the pictures you can see 11 scenes illustrating the life of the prophet Elijah, having preserved since the 13th century. It is interesting to note that these 11 murals are preserved only in fragments, and present the only known example of this cycle in a monumental medieval painting.

    The church is famous not only for its unique paintings, but the icons. The most important relics stored here, considered an icon of Saint Simeon and Saint Sava, works by the painter Cosmas, Cetinje Oktoikh (the first printed book of the South Slavs) and handwritten gospels of XV and XVI centuries. The church was partially destroyed in the XV century - fought with Orthodoxy Turks removed the roof and banned local residents to protect the icons and frescoes. For many years the Church of the Assumption of the Mother of God stood without a roof, rain and snow got inside. This has caused catastrophic damage to many frescoes, paintings and icons, and now preserved, unfortunately, not as much as we would like.

     2. The Church of St. Nicholas.

    St. Nicholas Church was built in 1635 and also may boast a rich interior painting. It is much less than the Church of the Assumption of Mother of God and its architecture is not very similar to the actual church building: the length and width of it is 5 m and height about 8 m. It is said that during the Ottoman rule, it was very popular to build churches, which exterior were almost impossible to distinguish from ordinary houses. In such way Montenegrins tried to preserve their faith.

     Lifehack: There is another interesting story. During the Turkish yoke, the Lords of Montenegro, who were both rulers of the country, and its spiritual leaders personally went from one house to another, trying to persuade people not to renounce the faith.
    The Church of St. Nicholas was built in 1635 on the territory of the monastic complex Moraca in Montenegro.
     3. Monastic buildings and cells.

    Monastic buildings and cells fit perfectly into the monastery and as if to form the outer wall. Unfortunately, tourists cannot get inside, but even outside they look very nice.

    On the territory of the monastery, you can also see:
    • A small source of holy water. The water is very tasty and is considered curative. We recommend to take it on a bit for the future.
    • the Monastery apiary, where the bees are working peacefully. The collected honey can be tasted and buught in a nearby shop on site.
    • the Monastery belfry. It looks quite modest in reality, despite the fact that on the Internet you can find many beautiful pictures of the belfry, made from some particular perspective.
    A small spring with holy water and an apiary on the territory of the monastery of Moraca.
    The monastery complex also has a well-tended garden and a courtyard decorated with flowers and shrubs, where visitors can sit on a bench, enjoying the view of old buildings. Behind the walls of the monastery, a small café runs, where you can quench your thirst and take a breath in the shade of a canopy during hot summer days. Subsistence farming of the monastery is quite interesting - not in every zoo cite dweller can see rare species of feathered fowl, turkeys, ducks, geese, chickens, etc. Obviously, the monastery is self-contained and completely done without the benefits of modern civilization - the monks have a vegetable garden, pasture, apiary, breed chickens and sheep, growing grapes.

    The churchyard is surrounded by a high wall with two gates, which during the Balkan wars of the late XIX century was used as a fortification in the battles with the Turkish army. In honor of the defenders of the monastery, killed in its defense, there is a memorial plaque.
    In honor of the defenders of the Monastery of Morac, who died in his defense, a memorial plaque is mounted on the wall.
     Relics of the Moraca monastery.

    Moraca Monastery is one of the most famous medieval monuments of Montenegro, which has unique murals and icons, which are among the best examples of wall painting in the Balkans.

    As we have said, there are no special shrines in Moraca, but we will try to list some of them, that we know of:
    • Hand of Holy Martyr Harlampy - the main shrine of the monastery. Consecrated by it olive oil take home the pilgrims from around the world.
    • Oktoikh (vosmiglasnik) - the first printed book of the South Slavs. It was printed in Cyrillic in 1493. Apostle, printed by Ivan Fedorov (the first printed book in Russia), released only 70 years later.
    • Manuscript Gospel and other unique documents are stored in the library of the monastery;
    • Baptistery of marble;
    • Nail, which according to legend, belonged to the St. Sava;
    • Cross in altar made of walnut in the XVI century.
    In addition to the shrine in the monastery there are especially beautiful icons that are located next to the iconostasis. They are made by the greatest masters of the XVIII century, and an icon of St. Sava and the icon of St. Luke are considered the most valuable in the Balkans.

    Sightseeing near the Moraca monastery.

    Moraca Monastery is quite popular destination among tourists and pilgrims. The necessary minimal infrastructure is set up here for visitors: a small camping and a café.

    Near the monastery there are the objects that are worth a visit as you get to this region. On Mrtvitsa river near the area of Green vir (Green whirlpool) is preserved an old stone bridge built by Prince Danilo in memory of his mother. Near Kolasin the ruins of the Turkish powder depot have remained, protected by law. According to legend, on the orders of the Turkish, the architect, being an orthodox, built it... in the form of a cross. When the Turks found cheating, he was immediately killed. The building survived, but was never used for its intended purpose.

    Under the walls of the Moraca, the river of the same name rages fast, and on the east side of the monastery in its marvelous waters flows the Svetigora waterfall. In the immediate vicinity there is an attractive river canyon Mrtvitsa, the length of which is 9 km. Its depth sometimes reaches 1,100 meters, and the entire length of the canyon is carved with the wall path. Harsh, but at the same time wonderful nature - the perfect background for a significant cultural and historical monument.

    Moraca Church is one of the most important medieval Orthodox monuments in the Balkans.

    Zabljak Crnojevic (rarely Zabljak Crnojevica, Montenegrin, Žabljak Crnojevića.) is a medieval city and fortress in Montenegro on Lake Skadar on a rock near the mouth of the Moraca River. The name comes from the Slavic Zabljak - marshy place where there are loads of frogs. Few people know, but the ancient capital of Montenegro, is not Cetinje, as many got used to think, but the medieval town of Zabljak on Skadar Lake. Not to confuse with the modern town of Zabljak in the north of Montenegro. However, back then, when Zabljak was a capital, there was not even such a name as Montenegro, and there was the Slavic principality of Zeta, located on the plains areas of Podgorica (Zeta plain) and Cetinje mountains (Mountainous Zeta).

    The last stronghold of the state of Zeta, the predecessor of Montenegro is Zabljak Crnojevica. This fortress belongs to the period of XI - XV centuries, and located in one part of the Skadar Lake, at the confluence of 4 rivers.

    Zabljak Crnojevica is referred to the significant monuments of fortification architecture. It is an important cultural heritage of the Skadar Lake basin. After wandering among the fortress walls, once a mighty fortress, we go down to the waterfront, and then go by boat to the island of Kosmach, where is the island monastery of the same name. This is one of the monasteries within the vast complex of "Zeta Athos".

    Got its name from the surname of the ruling Zeta dynasty Crnojevic, the capital of which was in the XV century. Founded probably in the X century, during the reign of Dukla from Vojislavljević dynasty. First mentioned in written sources in the middle of XV century. During the tenure of Zeta by Serbian despots Stefan Lazarevich and Yurij Brankovic, it was under their rule, and then, in 1466-1478, became the capital of Crnojevic dynasty.

    In 1475 the prince of Zeta Ivan Crnojevic I under the onslaught of the Ottomans was forced to move his capital to Obod, and then in Cetinje. In 1478 Zabljak was occupied by the Turks, who considerably strengthened its walls. During the Ottoman dominion Zabljak was the stronghold of the Turks on the northern shore of Skadar Lake. Montenegrins repeatedly tried to seize Zabljak, and in 1835 ten or thirteen Montenegrins moved through the wall and captured the city, captivating the garrison of 60 people, and then for three days kept the city away from the Turkish detachment of 3000 people. By decision of the Berlin Congress in 1878 Zabljak became a part of the independent Montenegro. Zabljak was surrounded by thick walls and towers with single entrance gate.

    In the city, apart from the palace of Crnojevic, there were: St. George's Church (converted into a mosque by the Turks), residential and military buildings, warehouses and tank for water. Most of the buildings have survived to our time. Now Zabljak Crnojevića has become desolate and is a tourist attraction with well-preserved walls and the remains of buildings of the XV century. The fortress can be reached from the town Golubovci at a time when the water in the lake is low, as well as on the boat at any time.

    The city of Niksic is located in the central part of the country at the foot of Mount Trebjes, 50 km from Podgorica. There are many roads leading from the coast to the heart of the country. Through the city goes a road connecting Podgorica with Bosnia and Herzegovina. The surrounding area is no less beautiful than the highlands of Montenegro - there are also lakes here (Krupac, Slano, Liverovici), monumental mountains towers up (the height of Niksic itself is 630 m above sea level), and the Zeta River flows past.

    History of the city.

    Niksic was founded by the Romans as a fortified military camp in the IV century BC on the site of the old Gothic settlement at the intersection of important roads. Then it bore the name Anagastum. Slavs who came to this region in the Middle Ages, changed the Roman name of the city to Onogosht. After the Ottoman conquest, the Turks once again took over the city - then it became known as Nikshic, and there the Turkish fortress was rebuilt. Gradually, the inhabitants became cramped within the fortress walls and they moved to the valley, where later the main city appeared.

    Turkish rule ceased in 1877, when Nikshic was liberated by the army of Nikola I Petrovic Njegos, the expulsion of the Ottoman Empire gave a new impetus to the development of the city - the rapid construction began there, the population began to grow. Most buildings of this period of development are associated with the name of architect Josip Slade, for example, he built the Cathedral of Basil of Ostrog, the palace of Nikola Petrovic Negos, the Royal Bridge, several parks and many other objects.

    In 1883, a plan of the development of Niksic was drawn up, which began to be implemented by the architect and town planner Josip Slade of Trogir. The first three decades after drawing up the plan are characterized by the explosive growth of urban production and trade, the establishment of various cultural and educational organizations in the city. By 1900, various attractions were built in Niksic: the Orthodox Church of St. Basil, the Royal Palace, the main city square with six streets that diverged from it, several parks.
    After the Second World War, the city was renovated and reconstructed. Niksic grew tenfold and became one of the important industrial centers of Montenegro.

    Niksic is the second largest industrial center in Montenegro after Podgorica. Here are located the metallurgical plant "Niksicka Zeljezara", a bauxite mine, a brewery "Niksicka Pivara" and other large enterprises. The wars of the break-up of Yugoslavia passed Montenegro, but left the Nikšić factories without suppliers and markets, which caused a complete decline in production, which lasted until the end of the 1990s. Many enterprises of the city were closed, others fell into decay. The business life of Niksic began to recover only at the beginning of the new millennium. The surviving plants were privatized and have now adapted to the new conditions. However, these enterprises cannot employ as many workers as they were employed in times of socialist Yugoslavia. Therefore, the city's economy is gradually transformed into economy of service. Well-being of the city is held at three large enterprises: the metallurgical plant, the bauxite mine and the brewery "Trebjesa", which produces the popular beer "Nikšičko", which is sold throughout Montenegro and the region.

    Sights

    There are several interesting sights in the city that you need to visit. It is worth starting from the central square, where the streets run to the north and east, and thus form a "web". Not far from the square there is the palace-museum of Nikola I Petrovic Njegos in the Renaissance style, in which now there is a museum of local folklore, the city park and the Freedom Square.
    palace-museum Njegos

    Lovers of historical monuments can also see the ancient Turkish fortress Bedem at the entrance to the city.
    Fortress Bedem

    The fortress was built by the Turks in the 18th century after the conquest of the Slavonic Onogost. They surrounded by the fortress walls only the upper city, where the Ottoman administration was located, while the lower part of the settlement, populated by artisans, was outside the fortification and had its own defense system. The fortress was always the site of battles for the city during numerous wars, the last battle near the walls of the bastion occurred in 1878, when Niksic was liberated by Montenegrin prince Nikola I.

    Be sure to visit the church of St. Basil of Ostrog, which was built in the 19th century. The Church of St. Basil keeps a memory of the heroes of Montenegro who gave their lives for her freedom. The temple is beautiful itself, and even better it makes a park, laid out. This architectural ensemble is called Saborn.

    Visit the bridges on the Mostanica River, Royal and Vukov. The Royal bridge is considered one of the most beautiful bridge structures in the country. It belongs to the creative heritage of the famous architect Josip Slade and was built at the end of the XIX century on the money of the Russian Emperor Alexander III, in honor of which he received his "royal" name. The bridge is located at the exit from Niksic along the route of the old road to Podgorica and goes over the Pandurica River. The stone structure has a length of about 269 m, the embankment on either side of the bridge extends almost 600 m long. The bridge consists of 18 arches, the maximum height of the span is 13 m. A small pedestrian bridge is located in the lower part of the structure in the area above the Pandurica River.
    Царский мост

    In the middle of Niksic cemetery you can find the oldest church in the district, which bears the names of St. Peter and Paul, which is a rather rare name among the numerous Montenegrin temples. According to legend, this church belongs to the IX century, and once Saint Sava served there - the first patriarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church. The church is located in the center of Niksic in the city cemetery and not far from the cathedral of Basil of Ostrog.
    Among other things, the ancient Turkish mosque Hadi-Smailov is perfectly preserved here, and in the immediate vicinity of the city an ancient human settlement was discovered - the Red Rock (Crvena stijena).

    The city hosts numerous international festivals, such as the International Festival of Actors, the International Chamber Music Festival and the International Guitar Festival. At the end of summer there are the famous "September Days" in Montenegro, during which theatrical and cinema nights, meetings with local poets and writers, various exhibitions are organized.

    What to see in the vicinity of the city?

    Niksic is waiting for lovers of skiing with a little experience. On the slope of Krnov, near the canyon of the river Komarnica, less than 20 km from the city is the ski center Vučje. At the disposal of holidaymakers - 4 tracks (their total length is about 3 km) and three ski lifts. Slopes are gentle, which is convenient and safe for the development of mountain skiing.

    For those who are interested in the history of Orthodoxy, we advise to visit the monastery Zupa. The history of the creation of the monastery is full of unexpected turns and drama. Legend has it that it was originally erected on the right bank of the Gracanica River, but was soon destroyed by a devastating rockfall. The monastery was restored, but history repeated itself. Then the locals dismantled the remains of the monastery literally by brick and moved the construction to the other side of the river. But - again a failure - it was burned by the Turks. And only at the end of the XIX century the monastery was rebuilt in the form that it now has.

    In the vicinity of the city in 1960 the Perucica hydroelectric power station was built here, which contributed to the formation of three artificial lakes: Krupac, Slano and Vrtac. These lakes so organically blended into the natural landscape and are beautiful, which gradually became the favorite recreation places for residents. Many people say that this is the best place for walking in the vicinity - Krupac Lake. It is located 5-6 km from the city, and here you can see many interesting things. The lake is full of fish, and in summer there are often competitions of anglers. And if you are not a fan of spending time with a fishing rod, equipped beach and promenade are at your service.

    How to get to the city?

    Niksic is connected with Podgorica by a two-lane highway E762. Podgorica Airport is 70 km away. Also from Niksic the roads through Shavnik to Zabljak and via Trebinje to Bosnia (with a branch to Risan and Kotor Bay) go. The budget way of transportation will be the bus. But it is also possible to take a taxi. The most convenient variant of the journey will be a rented car.

    History of the city
    In the Middle Ages the territory of Berane was known under the name Budimlja. It had great political and economic significance for the Serbian state of Rashka. St. Sava was one of the first Serbian bishops in 1219. The territory of the Berane district and neighboring territories were part of the medieval Serb state until 1455, when the Turks took the cities of Bihor and Budimlja. This area was inhabited by Serbs until the middle of the XVII century, when hard times came and many left it. The Turks had an Islamizing effect on the population. The first Serbian uprising in 1804, led by Karadjordjevic, took place in Novi Pazar, Sanjak. Residents of these cities also rebelled and assumed the reign of princes Anto Bogicevic and Hadzhi-Prodan Gligorievich. Since the time of the first Serbian uprising and until the attainment of complete independence, constant fighting with the Turks took place during the second half of the XIX century. Famous battles took place from 1825 to 1862, but the most important was the Battle of Rudes, held on 7 April, 1862, in which the Serbian and Montenegrin insurgents won. Berane was finally released from the Turks in 1912. During the Second World War, there was a brutal civil war between the partisans (communists) and the Chetniks (nationalists). As a result of the communist repressions of 1944-45 more than 4000 people died. From 1949 to 1992, Berane was known as Ivangrad, named after Ivan Malutinovic. In 1992, its former name name was returned to it.

    City attractions
    In addition to the snow-covered slopes, Berane is famous for its valuable historical sites. To learn more about the history of Montenegro and Berane, in particular, it is possible in the Polymsk Archaeological Museum, located in the center of Berane near the city park. More than 9000 exhibits, divided into archaeological, ethnographic, numismatic, heraldic, natural-science and art collections, tell about the history of the region, beginning with the Mesolithic era. The building of the museum was made in the early XX century, it was intended for a sobriety society, founded by the King of Yugoslavia Alexander I Karageorgievich. The sobriety house was the center of Berane cultural life, various events, concerts, masquerades and first theater performances were held here. During the Second World War, members of the liberation movement gathered in the building. And in 1955 the Polimsky Museum was opened here.
    The archaeological collection of the museum is the most extensive, it starts with the exhibits of the Neolithic, Copper and Bronze Ages, found during excavations. These are tools, jewelry, ceramics, figurines and other objects of everyday life. The most interesting items are made of deer horns and drilled wolf fangs. Then there are the exhibits of the Illyrian period - jewelry from amber and dishes of the VI century BC, as well as Roman tombstones.
    The medieval period is richly represented by military armor, for example, an armored shirt with a hood of the XIV century, which was used by soldiers of the times of the Crusades. A significant part of the medieval archaeological collections was found in the fortresses, churches and monasteries of the nearest district, so there are many church utensils, fragments of frescoes, stone furniture and architectural decor.

    There is a house of the Governor Gavro Vukovic in Beran (the museum is located in the center of Berane, south to the city park); Monument of Freedom on Mount Jasikivac (the monument is located in the eastern part of Berane, in the middle of the Jasikovac Park).
     
    What to see in the vicinity of the city
    For those who are interested in Orthodox culture, the monastery of St. George will be interesting, another name is Djurdjevi Stupovi, that is, the "St. George's Towers".
    Монастырь Георгиевские башни
    The monastery is located next to the town of Berane on the Rastovo plateau on the left bank of the Lim River, two kilometers from the city. The architectural ensemble was built in the XIII century. Throughout its history, the monastery of St. George played a crucial role in the birth and preservation of the national identity of the Montenegrin and Serbian peoples, the spread of culture in this region. The monastery courageously opposed the Turkish conquest, until the middle of the XVII century in the region there was no Islamization of the local population. But the selfless struggle could not do without victims, Ottoman troops burned the monastery several times - in 1738, in 1825, in 1862 and in 1875, and in 1912 the monastery was damaged by Austrian troops in the First World War. For this Djurdjevi Stupovi was even nicknamed the "martyr monastery". After the destruction of the early XX century monastery almost completely ceased to exist. The total reconstruction of the whole Djurdjevi Stupovi monastery complex began in the spring of 2001.

    For curious tourists, the Sudikova Monastery may be of interest. The monastery is located near the town of Berane on the right bank of the Lim River at the beginning of the Tifrany gorge. Archaeological research allows you to determine the age of the monastery - XIII-XIV centuries. Apparently, the monastery became a refuge of the Budimlja diocese, when its ministers were forced to flee from other lands from Turkish oppression. Throughout the Tifrany gorge, several caves have been preserved, which were used by clergymen as monasteries and hiding places, where they hid books, icons and other church values. It is believed that its name Sudikova the monastery received because of the judicial function, which it performed until its destruction in 1738, because in its walls the hearings were conducted and judges sat.
    Монастырь Шудикова
    The cultural and educational role of the monastery was especially evident in the form of the "Shudikovsky chair", which existed here for several centuries, special courses where literature, the art of census books, fresco painting, artistic skills and medicine were studied. In 1738 the monastery was burnt by the Turks and looted. This happened as a punishment for the fact that the locals supported Austria in the war against Turkey. Since then the monastery of Sudikova ceased to exist. The first excavations on the site of the monastery were made in 1923, the remains of the monastery church of the Ascension of the Blessed Virgin Mary were found. But then for a long time the work was suspended. Studies were resumed only in 1989, when the nave and the porch of the temple, remains of the stone floor were found. Restoration of the Sudikova Monastery began in 1998, in 2009 the monastery was re-consecrated, and today it is the nunnery of the Budimljansko-Niksic Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

    For those who want to extend the excursion and entertainment program, they can also visit the ancient settlements of Bihor and Torino, where archeological excavations are conducted; The monastery of Kaludra (the monastery is in the municipality of Berane near the village of Kaludra on the bank of the river of the same name); The monastery of Urosevica (the monastery is located in the municipality of Berane near the village of Zaostro on the banks of the Lim River); The Biogradska Gora National Park (the national park is located in the municipalities of Kolasin, Mojkovac and Berane in the center of the Bjelasica mountain range between the canyons of the Tara and Lim rivers); Lake Peshica (the lake is located in the west of the Berane municipality in the territory of the Biograd Mountain National Park near the top of the Črna Glava).

    One of the interesting events in the life of Berane is the annual festival, which is eloquently called "Hot winter in the mountains". Participants can be not only professional athletes, but also prominent cultural figures.

Montenegro is a small country on the Balkan Peninsula, which is washed by the Adriatic Sea. The Montenegrin coast is divided into two parts: Bay of Kotor, where the Tivat, Kotor and Herceg-Nova Riviera are located and the open Adriatic Sea with the Budva, Bar and Ulcinj Rivieras. Unlike the neighboring countries of the Balkan region, Montenegro has a relatively small coastline - about 300 kilometers. Nevertheless, today, renting yachts, motor boats, boats, catamarans, scooters and other types of water transport in Montenegro is one of the most popular services among tourists from all over the world.

Rest in Montenegro is unlikely to be complete if you do not find the time and will not go out even once to the open sea on a yacht or boat. None of the types of outdoor activities are able to give such stunning emotions as a boat trip / yacht / catamaran / motor boat / and other sailing in open water. Rent of yachts, motor boats, boats, catamarans, scooters, kayaks, SUP-s, etc. Is a pleasure that sometimes costs more than many other entertainments, but emotions also cause this kind of rest too special and memorable for many years ...
