Around 8 km south of Bajina Bašta is located a Serbian Orthodox Monastery known as Rača Monastery. Built in the Thirteenth Century, this Monastery was a burial place for many Serbian rulers, noblemen and dignitaries.

During the Great Turkish War in 1689 the monastery was partially destroyed by the invading Turks and also several times while Serbia was under the rule of the Ottoman Empire. It was reconstructed during the Nineteenth Century.

The Monastery and the garden also are extremely pretty and very significant for history. The interior of the monastery is decorated with frescoes and icons, and the monastery iconostasis with two icons of Jesus and Holy Virgin is considered to be one of the most beautiful in Serbia.The interiors are breathtaking. As you can visualize from the images here.

A Nikon D-850 camera and a Nikon wide-angle 20mm lens were used to capture these images. Since the interiors were quite dark and using a tripod inside was out of the question, higher ISO values had to be used. Inspite of that, the Nikon however retained quite a lot of details.
