What travelers say:

The Ostrow Monastery, known as "the city with the most beautiful sky", is full of monks. It is built on almost vertical cliffs. Due to the narrow mountain roads, it can only be reached by small cars. Ascend to the monastery, overlooking the magnificent plain scenery of the Zeta River. The courtyard retains the Eucharist of the builder Orthodox Bishop Saint Ostrow, and there are also exquisite frescoes unfinished at the end of the 17th century. This has become one of the most important places of pilgrimage in the Balkans. The white building has the power to purify the soul and calm emotions.

    Unbelievable

    A place which you just have to see with your own eyes to believe it truly exists. Truly epic. Loved the chapel edged on the cliff.

    Excellent

    Precious place. Those who complain are simply typical modern spoiled shallow outcriers. The whole place is about character and temper. So stop crying you have to wait in the queue. This is not another...

    worth the trip up the mountain

    It is a bit of a scary drive up the mountain to reach the car park. There is no charge to park, and there are toilets. Its then a 10 min walk up hill on uneven ground and steps. We visited on our own ...
