On the island of Beska a monastery with the same name is situated, and like most monasteries from this time, it is directly connected to the Balsic dynasty. The monastery has two churches, Sveti Djordje and Sveta Bogorodica. The church of the Sveta Bogorodica was erected by Jelena Balsic, the daughter of Prince Lazar, a well known Serbian ruler, and wife of Djurdja II Stratimovic Balsic. Her grave is located in this church. Beška monastery, as well as Starčevo monastery, was famous for its intensive transcription activities. The Gorička Anthology was written in this monastery. It is a religious, edifying transcript composed by Nikon Jerusalimac.
