Moraca Monastery holds a copy of the original Oktoih--the first printed book of the southern Slavs in the Cyrillic alphabet from 1493. Look for the engraving above the Romanesque main portal, which testifies that Stefan Vukanovic, the Grand Prince of Zeta and the grandson of Stefan Nemanja, founded the monastery in 1252. The complex features two churches and lodgings for travelers. The 13th-century frescos in a chamber on the right side of the central apse illustrate 11 scenes from the life of the prophet Elijah. You also can see a mural depicting the prophet in the wilderness with a raven that is bringing him food.

It is difficult to write what is more beautiful.. Nature, the Monastery, or the peace and tranquility that this place provides. Created by God.
It's a beautiful place where to stop from a pause from driving. There is a beautiful garden and a nice river with drinkable water. You will spend 15 mins to visit it.
