Sopoćani Monastery Jun 21, 2013
Sopocani Monastery is surprisingly nice temple in incredibly beautiful natural setting. Small river comes out of the ground in vicinity of the monastery opening nice green valley that is surrounded with old remains of the old Serbian capital from 10th century and scattered monasteries. Sopocani were made during the Serbian renaissance in 13th century and painted by the best fresco painters in the world of that time. Most of the frescoes were applied on the golden background which gave this images surreal glow and almost 3D feel. Those frescoes survived some 500 years in the church without roof and just knowing that you would be surprised by the quality of the remaining frescoes. This is also an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
