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...More

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...More

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.

This beautiful monastery is about 10km from Pristina and is well worth a visit - we spent about an hour there. I wasn't too sure what to expect given that there isn't a huge amount of practical information about visiting, but it was all very...More

The monastery is certainly very interesting from both a cultural and historical significance. Most importantly it's however to understand that the monastery is in use and you'll likely be one of the few people I'd not the only one that is here for tourism. But...More

Our Hotel Nartel recommended calling a taxi(6 Euro) to be dropped off at the monastery entrance. Arriving at 9 AM, the walled complex was open and free to enter. At the church, a man speaking English asked us not to take pictures and be careful...More

The rest of the grounds aren't that impressive but the church is stunning. Be aware you have to give your passports to the soldiers at the gate, and be very modestly dressed (men no shorts, women covered legs and arms). Recommended.
