About this building
Prijepolje Cathedral, dedicated to St. Basil of Ostrog, was founded on 22 July 1890 in the centre of Prijepolje, on the site of an older church dating from 1852.
Mažići Monastery was founded in the 12th century. The monastery complex was demolished and rebuilt several times, but it was definitively abandoned at the beginning of the 18th century. At the beginning of the 21st century, the monastery church was renovated, while the renovation of the entire complex is still in progress. During archaeological excavations of the complex, prehistoric burial mounds from the Bronze Age, Roman tombs and a necropolis (from the 9th and 10th centuries) around it were discovered.
This monastery was founded in the 13th century by King Stefan Vladislav I. It is famous for one of its frescoes which is known as one of the most important pieces of Serbian art from this time period, the "White Angel".
