Manastir Ljubostinja se nalazi u blizini Trstenika i 9 km severoistočno od Vrnjačke Banje. Smeten je u dolini male planinske reke (Ljubostinjska reka). To je zadubina kneginje Milice
Posvećen je Uspenju presvete Bogorodice. Manastir je građen od 1388. do 1405. godine. U Ljubostinji su sahranjene kneginja Milica, ene kneza Lazara i monahinja Jefimija, koje su se posle Kosovske bitke ovde zamonaile sa brojnim udovicama srpskih vlastelina izginulih u bojevima na Marici i Kosovu polju. Danas je Ljubostinja enski manastir koji čuva i odrava oko pedeset monahinja. Za vreme Kočine bune iz manastira ljubostinje je narod pozvan na ustanak. Posle propasti bune Turci su zapalili manastir da bi se osvetili Srbima. Tada je većina fresaka unitena. Takođe kada je manastir zapaljen otkrivena je tajna riznica koja je bila sakrivena u manastirskom zidu iza ikone u kojoj je kneginja Milica sakrila svoje blago. Među opljačkanim blagom nalazila se i kruna kneza Lazara koja se danas nalazi u Istanbulu. Manastir slavi 19. avgust, Preobraenje.
Arhitektura i slikarstvo
Manastir Ljubostinja je trikonhalne osnove razvijenog tipa sa kupolom i pripratom. Zidan je pritesanim kamenom, dok su fasade premalterisane i islikane tako da imitiraju zidanje kamenom i opekom. Manastir je građen u Moravskom stilu. Graditelj je protomajstor Rade Borović, čije se ime nalazi na pragu prolaza iz priprate u naos. ivopis je samo delimično sačuvan, rađen je u dva navrata. U priprati se nalaze portreti kneza Lazara i kneginje Milice koje je načinio jeromonah Makarije. Od slikarskih dela sačuvana su jo: "Veliki praznici", "Stradanja", "Čuda"... U crkvi se nalazi i veoma vredan ikonostas koji je 1822. godine oslikao Nikola Marković.Ljubostinja je proglaena spomenikom kulture od izuzetnog značaja 1979, i ona je zatićena od strane Republike Srbije.

krzychu30 (15498) 2012-04-28 8:06
I´m sorry for so late discovery of your beautiful image,but I´ve been overworked for the last time.
This is really excellent example of the beauty of Serbian architecture and especially Morava style,which you mentioned in your note.I´ve just read about this style and its founders:Lazar Hrebeljanović,Stefan Lazarević and Đurađ Branković.Very interesting for someone who is interested in architecture.
Apart from the beauty of this Monastery,I have to mention excellent POV you´ve chosen and framing.The picture has also superb,bright colors and outstanding clarity.
Wish You a pleasant weekend

Hello Sasha. A monastery with walls and trees. I see the typical orthodox design. I love the beautiful blue sky, because it gives light to the scene. Very nice. Rgds, Wolfgang.
asajernigan (21294) 2012-06-07 12:46
Your composition is nice using the foreground wall to create a border for the scene. The tree on the right gives the photo a sense of direction and balance. The lighting is great yielding nice color!
Angshu (55892) 2012-07-04 21:27
Nice picture of the Orthodox monastery, with the typical Balkan design shown well. Like the framing achieved with the foliage & also the boundary wall
pierrefonds (57445) 2012-07-12 4:46
The trees are framing well the monastery. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the monastery. The early evening light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
mkamionka (30694) 2012-07-16 23:33
beautiful piece of architecture. I am glad to see it. It seems to have some Byzantine elements yet it appears completely unique in style to me, may be just because I am a layman. Very attractive, very well presented,

Very nice shot of the monastery .Full of colors and sharpness.Very well done.
ourania (31971) 2012-11-04 9:48
the architectural style of this church is very interesting and impressive. The interior must be fascinating as well. I like your composition that includes the lawn outside and the high fence. The trees bring in lovely contrasting colours and textures and enrich the composition. The intense textures of all the elements that compose this view come to an interesting contrast with the smooth blue sky. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,
josepmarin (57801) 2012-11-05 12:08
I like the magnificent architecture of this Serbian orthodox Monastery, which we can admire in your good composition.
The framing is very effective, you have combined skillfully the architecture and the vegetation, with a great chromatic contrast between its green tones and the blue of the sky.
It is a beautiful work, impeccably executed.
PS: yes, the D7000 works very well, I'm totally satisfied.
Robert1969 (7104) 2012-11-21 11:45
A picture with nice warm and bright colors.
Composition and light management are as
alway good and the picture has nice layers
and that creates a nice depth.
kato (11630) 2013-07-13 2:26
You're capturing well this architecture by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the elegant monastery in medieval times suroounded rich nature with a good design. Especially, it's impressive in the design minced by the wall. It seems to bear the rough sea of histories, such as the past battle. The whole is harmonized and balanced well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination of monastery, greenery and blue sky.
