Ostrog Monastery-the most visited monastery in Europe

Ostrog Monastery is the largest Orthodox sanctuary and most visited sanctuaries in the region. Annually it is visited by millions of tourists from all over the world. It was founded by St. Basil in the 17th century, and since then, his rich history of the religious and spiritual center of the Orthodox faith has begun. The diverse and rich treasury of this monastery preserves some of the greatest healing secrets of a recent history of Christianity. For this, the miraculous bridges of Saint Vasili Ostroski are particularly deserving of this. The lecture speaks of the healing powers of the earthly remains of St. Basil.

The monastery is recognizable and unique in the world and in its position, or mode of construction. It is located on a stone shaft in which the emigrant's life was led by many monks who served the god here. It consists of the upper and lower monasteries.

The Upper Monastery is located at 900 meters above sea level and there are in the church dedicated to the Presence of the Holy Virgin, located in the bridges of St. Basil. This monastery was erected in 1667.

The lower monastery is located at an altitude of 800 meters, and there are baptisms and other religious rites.

The entrance to the complex of the monastery is not charged, and the cars can be left on a large parking, 300 m away from the monastery. In the Upper Monastery there is a souvenir shop and other items that are authentic. To bow to Saint Basil's bridges, it is necessary to jump in order, because there are almost always believers who are waiting. In the early morning hours there are fewer visitors, so it is possible to enter the church after 5 minutes. When I go to church holidays, the order is waiting for a few hours.

You can not go to the monastery with bare hands and legs. This means that men need to have long trousers and indoor shoes. Likewise, women. In the framework of the monastery there is a conch, in which after the registration you can transfer or attend a service.

The bigest lighthouse in Montenegro is far about 50 km from Podgorica when traveling to Niksic. You can visit them with car rent a car agency Respecta car.
