January 2nd - tour to Monastery Tresije and Kosmaj
Jan 2021 • Couples
After crazy year, we decide that first day off in new year, and luckily, sunny day, visit Kosmaj and Monastery Tresije, and enjoy it.
Monastery is more than 700 years old, built by Serbian king from Nemanjic dynasty. Like Serbian history, this monastery survive a lot of things. Several times was ruined and restored, abandoned and full with monks, and somehow, you can feel that when you are here. It has fresh restored painting inside the church, really beatiful. Also, everything is really nice and clean, also very peaceful, where you can pray in peace, or simply walk, sit or breath a fresh air. Definitly worth stoping by and visit this cultural and religious place.

Serbian ortodox monastery nice and peaceful. Although you will read all over the internet that it was built in XIII, actually it is realtively new one. Truth is it was built in XIII but it was demolished several times through history so its completely wall painted 6 months ago. The small peace of old frescoe remains in the altar. Church itself is new.

Beautiful mountain Kosmaj and old Tresije Monastery on its slopes
Oct 2016 • Couples
Just the other day in october month, we went to Sopot, to see this small serbian town in the Sumadija, region just beneath Belgrade. Here we decided to make some hike to the sides of Kosmaj, the very nice and picturesque mountain. And after some rambling done through the woods and groves of Kosmaj we stopped by one of the pearls of serbian medieval architectural religious building, i.e. the Tresije Monastery.
In fact, it is called the Temple of Saint Archangel Gabriel and was built in the time of Despot Stefan Lazarevic, at the end of 14th century or at the beginning of 15th.
Interesting is design of the building, with the side entrance, that leads through three stone sections with two sided roofs, toward the main domed building, beautifully arched on the sides of it. There is a stone plate in front of the church, with the inscription on it, reading about saint Stefan Lazarevic.
Very nice church, indeed.

After walking for a few hours on Kosmaj mountain, this is a great spot to come to relax and rest. If you come in early spring when everything is in blossom it's such a specter of colours. Make sure you sit on a bench and just enjoy the quietness of the place.

Wonderful Trip at Sopot, Very Nice Monastery
Nov 2014 • Couples
After a long walk around Kosmaj Mountain, Tresije Manastir is definitely a place for someone to stop, have a deep breath, relax, feel the atmosphere and peace that is deriving in this magical and unique scenery. The feeling is just wonderful and for sure everyone will enjoy this visit. Whether if someone is a believer or not, it certainly worths it lighting a candle and making a wish. There are benches around that everyone can enjoy a nice picnic, like we did. Highly recommended and certainly I will go there again.

If I was not with my colleague from Belgrade Television came to the Film Festival in Sopot, or as stated in the decision of the government on its establishment - Freedom film ceremony, I met this little town under Kosmaj, and more importantly I would not be able to admire the monastery Tresije.
Here in the lobby Šumadija historical region, which continues behind Kosmaj, one could hear the legend of the medieval Serbian Despot Stefan Lazarevic (1377-1427). Tradition says that the during hunting Kosmaju Despot Stefan seriously injured leg. Wounded Despot was first screamed in pain near the village Ropočevo. A little further on, near the monastery Tresije, first sock. Worried entourage tried to find lodging, but to his dismay found that the village there is no house that could accommodate wounded despot. The casualty was to Koraćica successful alone to walk. Sprawled in the only village Pružatovac brought him to Crkvina where he died. All listed sites are located in a row from the top to the bottom Kosmaj.
After less than an hour's drive from center Belgrade, two days after a visit to the Film Festival or watched the movie "Pretty Village, Pretty Flame", I am back in Sopot. Pleasant, with lots of greenery, clean, built on undulating terrain place of about 20,000 inhabitants. This region is also proud of its medieval past and the tradition of the liberation movement in World War II. Then there is acted famous Kosmajski partisans squad.
From the center of town now refer to the monastery. Across the sunlit hill, through intensive Park, arrive in an instant in this sacred complex. I immediately submerse that has a beginning before almost 800 years. Stone and tile. I chime in quietly
The establishment of the monastery Tresije Kosmaju, near Sopot, is attributed to Despot Stefan Lazarevic. However, it is likely that the monastery was founded in the late 13th century or early 14th century, in the time of King Dragutin, it was rebuilt in the reign of Despot Stefan, early 15th century. In Turkish sources monastery is mentioned 1560th year as the monastery of the Holy Arhanćela called Tres, who had 12 monks. Conquered and destroyed the late 17th century of the Turks. Monks from the monastery treasures are moving to the Srem region and found refuge in monasteries Fruška. The monastery was passed Hopovo 1641st The Psalter from one Tresije monastery, which was later transferred to Hilandar where it is still located. Destroyed monastery renewed 1709th the Rakovački monks led by
the abbot Vissarion. About the restoration testifies inscription carved in stone to the left of the entrance door of the temple today. However, the monastery was soon abandoned and remained in ruins until 1936. when restoration began that ended with the 1950th year. Church Tresije monastery belongs to the buildings that are largely related to the tradition of the Raska school.
This to the monastery, who is named after the eloquent Tresije, which flows nearby, only after decades of communist and partisan obsession, we accept more and more believers. But those who come here to seek the salvation of many things! Maybe by the Belgrade crowd and excessive
