This church and nunnery complex on the outskirts of Peja are a slice of Serbian Orthodoxy that has existed here since the late 13th century. You're welcome to enter to visit the church, which is divided into four separate chapels containing superb frescoes. The entire complex dates from between the 1230s and the 1330s. Since 2013, the buildings have been guarded by Kosovo's police force, and you will need your passport to enter.

From the food stands around Peja's main square, walk along Lekë Dukagjini with the river on your left for 20 minutes until you reach the monastery walls.
