Visoki Dečani Monastery - Built between 1327 and 1335 by the Serbian medieval king St. Stephen of Decani. The Monastery is settled in the valley of the Bistrica river (Dečanska Bistrica), surrounded by the mountains and forests of the Prokletije mountain, 12km south from the town of Pec (Peć). It is the largest and best preserved medieval monastery in Serbia. The Monastery has survived after the Kosovo war (1998-2000) and the Brotherhood today lives as an isolated Serbian Orthodox island among hostile Kosovo Albanian Moslem population. This holy site survives thanks to the protection of Italian forces which have blocked every access to the monastery.
