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 Nemanjaโ€™s grand son. It is situated in an extended part of picturesque canyon of the Moraca river. The churchyard of the monastery is enclosed by a high wall with two gates. In addition to architecture, its frescoes represent a special significance of the Moraca Monastery. Only a small portion of the original painting from the 13th century was preserved in โ€œdjakonikonโ€, where the compositions from the life of Prophet Ellias (prorok Ilija) are singled-out for their monumentality and strength of expression.
