Kosovo Day Trip: Pristina and Prizren Tour from...
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

A short bus or taxi ride away from Pristina, this monastery provided an oasis of calmness and beauty. Although not on the scale of those at Pec or Decani, this church has amazing frescoes and probably more than either of the others provides a really good impression of how it would have looked when created. Thoroughly recommended.

Our first visit of the church was during a mass. We could not walk around but the singing accompanying the mass was a special experience. On a second visit a few days later we explored the the medieval frescoes that are in very good condition.

I am not religious at all. However I found this place so spiritual. It was amazing. It's so beautiful and totally unexpected. We stopped in grancanica for a few hours whilst waiting for a bus. Wish we had had longer in the monastery. The staff were so friendly.

Its a medieval monastery, with gorgeous frescoes covering every inch of the inside. Takes you right back to the 14th century.

A very interesting place for the christian history in Kosovo and the multi-religion country as well. Wonderful architecture of the buildings in a large square with park and houses for the nun. Overwelving painting insite of the monastry.
