Bears the same pattern as the Holy Saviour's Church in Skopje. It is built 5 feet below ground in order not to be visible by the Muslim Turks. Well maintained yard and some super intelligent Nuns.

Monasteries, castles, cathedrals, synagogues are all on our bucket list of places to visit when out and about. This monastery was well worth the visit and I would highly suggest a visit when in the Berovo area.

The monastery is characteristic by its age. We enjoyed the nice story which our host told us. Also, a mosaic gallery is worth to see, but it seems to me too expensive.
