Ostrog Monastery, Dabojevici

Carved almost entirely into a mountain cliff and famoud for miraculous occurrences, Ostrog Monastery serves as one of the world's most-visited Christian destinations. Founded in the 17th century, the site features an Orthodox monastery complex and chapels inside caves. See the Holy Trinity Church, with an interior covered in colorful paintings from top to bottom, and view the remains of 27 World War II soldiers in the Church of Saint Stanko the Martyr. Visit the Upper Church, which emerges out of a cliff and is a world-famous intercession site. The site houses vivid tile icons from 1655, a prayer book from 1732, and decorated candlesticks from 1779.

  • It is a bit of a scary drive up the mountain to reach the car park. There is no charge to park, and there are toilets. Its then a 10 min walk up hill on uneven ground and steps. We visited on our own....  more »
  • It's really impressive to see up close how and where the monastery is located. Don't be scared by the road leading to it, it's not bad actually. You can drive all the way up to the Upper monastery.....  more »
  • Ostrog Monastery. A wonderful authentic experience. Still being used, lots of blankets to show it gets cold here.
  • The location makes the place very much worth the visit. If religion is not your thing, at least the vista's and the drive up is fantastic.
