The Moraca Monastery is one of the most monumental medieval monuments of Montenegro. It was built in 1252 by Stefan, son of King Vukan and Nemanja’s grand son. It is situated in an extended part of picturesque canyon of the Moraca River. Monastery complex is consisting of the cathedral Ascend of mother of God (Uspenje Bogorodice), small church of Saint Nicolas (Sveti Nikola) and a building for accommodation.
The Savina monastery, located near the town of Herceg-Novi, was built amidst rich Mediterranean vegetation in one of the most attractive corners of the northern Montenegrin coast. The name originates from the 4th Century martyr St. Sabbi. There is considerable controversy regarding its age. The monastery consists of three churches: the church of the Assumption, the church of St.Sava of Serbia and the larger cathedral of the Assumption.
