Lelic Monastery

Posted by Picasa

So our first stop on Sunday afternoon was Lelic Monastery, which St Nikolai Velimirovic built (in the 1920s, if I remember correctly) and where he now lies. It’s about 2 hours west of Belgrade.

The top photo is from inside the monastery’s church – St Nikolai is behind us. Our hosts, Nebojsa and Lepa, are standing on either side of us. At the end, beside Lepa, is her sister.

The second photo is taken from a small house which has been converted into a sort of museum to St Nikolai – the rest of the small monastery is in the background.

The third photo is of the church from upstairs in another building and the last photo is of the church from the small museum, with cross-shaped fountain in the foreground.
