Rustovo Monastery

Budva, Montenegro

Rustovo Monastery is located around three kilometres above the Praskvica Monastery. It is dedicated to the Assumption of the Holy Mother of God and it has been convent since 2004. The graves of monks were discovered in the monastery yard, which proves that a number of monks lived here as early as in the Middle Ages. Within the Monastery complex, there is a little chapel dedicated to St Benedict of Nursia, as well as a more recent church dedicated to the Holy Royal Martyrs, the Romanovs.

Beautiful 14th century monastery, built near a place where 1400 people Orthdox Serbs Pastrovici from a nearby place where killed because they didn’t want to convert to Catholicism

I drive all the way to the top of the hill, only to find out their Monastery is closed. The front plate on the door clearly says it is supposed to open 6am to 7pm everyday. If you do decide to try your luck, pay attention to the last 1km of the road, it is not well paved, and might damage your car tire.

Очень впечатлило место, приветливые монахини, все показали и расказали про монастырь, угостили печеньями, конфетами и святой водой. Чуть выше подняться и открывается красивейший вид на Будванскую бухту

Manastir presvete Bogorodiceu selu Rustovo na Paštrovskoj gori, iznad Svetog Stefana danas je ženski pravoslavni manastir, koji je na temeljima stare crkve Paštrovića, obnovljen prethodne decenije. Prema predanju na ovom mjestu su još u 14. vijeku Paštrovići podigli crkvu za saplemenike, koji su stradali od vojske mađarskog kralja Ludviga. Crkva je u više navrata bila razorena, u 15. vijeku i u razornom zemljotresu 1979. godine. Konak manastira Rustovo je osvećen 2004. godine, da bi u julu 2006. godine bio dovršen i osveštan hram posvećen Svetim carskim mučenicima Romanovima.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
