Built between 1375 and 1377, Ravanica is the famous Prince Lazar's foundation, where he was buried after his death in the Kosovo battle. Since then, Ravanica has been a pilgrim's destination and an important center of cultural activities and the Serbian people's assemblies. The monastery has been assaulted and damaged by the Turks several times, in 1386, 1398 and 1436. In the great war after the second siege of Vienna a number of monks got killed and the rest of them, in 1690, took the relics of the sainted Prince Lazar withdrawing, in front of the Turkish offensive. Only in 1717 the only survived among the monks, Teacher Stefan came back in Ravanica and found the monastery looted and deserted. With the help of the local inhabitants he restored the monastery and built a new narthex. The monastery suffered repeated assaults during the Serbian revolution, at the beginnings of the 19th century. The new restoration took place in the mid-19th century. During the World War II Germans violated and damaged the monastery once more, and detained, tortured and killed its archimandrite Makarije on 24 February 1943.

Dobar dan, kod nas suncan i lep a hladan.
Dobar tekst ...
Dobar ugao i ostrina snimka, lule su dale car snimku i pokazale zimske cari ...
Dobar rad i tekst, lepe boje i fotografija sa novim saznanjem o istoriji manastira.
Zima je snegom ukrasila mesto i sumu, sunceva svetlost je naglasila lepu arhitekturu i detalje na fasadi.
Prijatan dan i vikend sa lepim vremenom.

This monastery has a beautiful architecture. I like the rustic walls with the marks of the time .The point of view from this side is interesting. The vegetation with the grey color of winter is very nice too.
subhendu_bagchi (24381) 2011-02-05 10:34

adramad (33584) 2011-02-05 11:29
Different picture to other stocks I've seen and very nice POV of this beautiful monastery, the edges of roofs and domes, and even ice hangings, they add a special charm in winter.
The sun that shines at this time gives very nice texture to the walls and a beautiful color, good sharpness also allows us to enjoy the image.
Good and different image of the WS.
Have a nice weekend. Best regards.

Un caro abbraccio.
chris04stop (6791) 2011-02-05 15:28
So a beautiful image, dear Sasha! Light and shadows... I don't know why, but your churchs, the ortodoxes, I mean, are so different...Maybe because they are simple. And the religion has to do simple! Right, Sasha?
raszid62 (18583) 2011-02-05 22:02
У наставку приказан неколико пута већ ове лепе манастир. Увек ме запањује својом лепотом. Овде, у предивном контраст између златних зидова и бели снег. Одличан квалитет слике.

Like the great plan of the monastery, flanked by trees painted white and under a blue sky.
