One day arrangements

1. Visiting the Moraca monastery
Starting from Kolasin at 10 o’clock by minibus or jeeps and travelling through Medjurijecje we are coming to the Moraca Monastery which is one of the most monumental orthodox medieval monasteries in Montenegro. 

The Moraca monastery is located on the right bank of the Moraca River in an extended part of the canyon, on natural picturesque landscape. The monastery was built in1252 by Stefan, the son of the King Vukan and the grandson of Nemanja and it can be seen on the inscription which is located on the lintel of the west portal.
The monastery complex is made of the minster Falling into sleep of Our Lady, a small church of St. Nikola and lodgings. The monastery port is surrounded by high wall with two gates. The minster is a big structure made in Raska churches style with semicircular apsidal and dome. Unlike the other churches which have been made in coastal style, the walls of this church were rendered. There was also built a spacious narthex. The main portal is made in roman style.
Besides the architecture, the most important part of the Moraca monastery is its paintings. From the former painting from the 13th century is only saved a small part of the series of frescoes where 11 compositions from the prophet Eliah life were allocated by its monumentality and the power of expression. The power and monumentality of this painting exceeds everything which was painted in freso – paiting in the 13th century, before Sopocani.  The rest of paintings were damaged in the first part of the 16th century when the monastery was devastated by the Turks.Little has remained of the formerly rich monastery treasury, but several religious objects and precious manuscripts among which is a copy of Oktoih prvoglasnik. One of the artistic jewels of the monastery church is the door of narthex. It belongs to the most beautiful and the most imaginative wooden art.
