Manasija Monastery

The Manasija or Resava Monastery is one of the most important monuments of Serbian medieval culture and the most important building that belongs to the so-called “Morava school”. It belongs to the Eparchy of Branicevo of the Serbian Orthodox Church. The Manasija Monastery is the endowment of Despot Stefan Lazarevic. Its construction began in 1407, and was completed in 1418. The monastery church is dedicated to the Holy Trinity, and it is consecrated upon the Holy Spirit’s Day. The whole complex is surrounded by large walls that were used for defence. It was a fortified whole consisting of a total of 11 towers, of which the Donzon Tower, better known as the Despot’s Tower, stood out. Although only a third of the frescoes in the monastery have been preserved, the frescoes of Manasija are among the greatest achievements of medieval painting. During the works on the reconstruction of the monastery church in Manasija at the beginning of the 21st century, earthly remains were discovered, which are considered to belong to Despot Stefan. DNA analysis of these remains confirmed with 99.9378% accuracy that it was in fact the son of Prince Lazar

Wax Museum

Wax Museum is one of six such museums in Europe, and the first of its kind in Serbia, with historical figures, from St. Sava to modern-day celebrities. The museum covers 450 m2 and has 29 wax figures in its permanent display. So far, about 50,000 people from different parts of the world have passed through the museum – from Palić to Vlasotince, from Turkey to Poland, from Nigeria to Vancouver. “Wax figures of Serbia” is an exhibition that displays the most distinguished people of our history, culture, science and sports. We wanted to make a time machine, a frozen picture of the time in which we live. In addition to the displayed figures, original costumes, weapons, copies of rare books, models of monasteries and war flags are also presented. We wanted to showcase the period and environment in which the greats of Serbia lived and worked.

Resava cave

Resava cave is located 20 km from Despotovac, within a limestone hill called Babina glava, on the banks of the karst field (Divljakovac). It is one of the most beautiful caves in our country. It is 4.5 km long. For now, 2830 m have been explored in detail, and about 800m are arranged and available for visitors. It is one of the oldest examined caves in our country, about 80 million years old, while the old rock formation is estimated at 45 million years.

Kalenic Monastery

Kalenic Monastery is one of the most beautiful Morava-style monasteries. It was named after the long river of the same name, which flows along the southern side of the hilly Levac and flows into Velika Morava. It is located near Trstenik, at the end of the local road across Velika Drenova and Oparic. The monastery church is dedicated to the Presentation of Mary. It has an octagonal dome and a three-bearing base, and it is located on a pedestal, so it looks more elongated. The facades, typical of the Morava-style, are made of alternating arrangement of stone and brick, and are richly decorated, so that the Kalenic Monastery is one of the most decorative monasteries, with many reliefs, mullioned windows and rosettes.
