Duljevo Monastery

Budva, Montenegro

According to oral tradition, Duljevo Monastery was erected in the 14th century during the reign of Tsar Dusan, at an altitude of around 450 metres, on a plateau above the Monastery of Praskvica. The Monastery was a part of the Decani Monastery and, after taking their vows, the monks often went from here to Decani.

As opposed to the other monasteries in Pastrovici, Duljevo has only one church – dedicated to the Saint Archdeacon Stefan. In the past, the monastery was badly damaged on several occasions, but the people of Pastovici always managed to reconstruct it. Its special value is a fresco in the older part of the church, and this great treasure of fresco paintings was discovered after the earthquake of 1979, when part of the building collapsed. Duljevo also had a monastery school.

Najbolje maslinovo ulje i med od kadulje(zalfije)

The monastery, the atmosphere that reigns there and the nature that surrounds it will leave you breathless. Real enjoyment, calmness, grace. You will drink water from the source of St. Sava ("Sava's water"), rest in the shade of an oak tree in which, according to tradition, the Saint rested. It is located near the monastery of Rustovo. I recommend that you walk from the highway (from the parking lot of the Praskvica monastery), uphill, visit the Rustovo monastery and continue to Duljevo, which is located near it.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
