Mileseva Monastery – Kamena Gora

Mileseva Monastery – Kamena Gora

 

 

Mileševa Monastery was built between 1218 and 1219, and frescos were painted from 1222 to 1228. It was founded by king Vladislav, son of the king Stefan Provovencani (eng. First-Crowned), and grandson of Nemanja. Vladislav built Mileševa to be his legacy and a place where he would be buried.

 

One of the most famous frescoes in the Monastery Mileševa is “White Angel”. It is considered as one of the most beautiful works of Serbian and European medieval art.

 

The medieval city Mileševac, situated on the very beginning of the canyon of the river Mileševka – represents a very well preserved and significant natural area, a haven for many rare and old species. The name Kamena Gora (eng. Stone Mountain) was given after the landscape in which it is located – a forest on a rocky mountain, i.e. “a mountain on a stone”. The oldest inhabitant of Kamena Gora is an old pine that was estimated to be 400 years old.
