Patriarchate of Pec reviews
As a foreigner, remember to bring the passport for entry. Through the main gate, there is a great view of the mountain and the lush ground in the front. After another main gate of the monastery, the main building of churches are just ahead. The whole yard is so quiet. You may enquire for audio guides to walk along the sites. Or simply enjoy the murals inside. It is a wonderful place to do some reading, chill out and feel the silence.
There are not many UNESCO heritage sites that you can have completely to yourself! This is one of them... I was the only person visiting and besides for 2 nuns chatting in the corner the place was completely empty... Read: quiet, peaceful and beautiful
