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.

Late Baroque Town of Ragusa

The eight towns in south-eastern Sicily, including Ragusa, were all rebuilt after 1693 on or beside towns existing at the time of the earthquake which took place in that year. They represent a considerable collective undertaking, successfully carried out at a high level of architectural and artistic achievement. Keeping within the late Baroque style of the day, they also depict distinctive innovations in town planning and urban building. Together with seven other cities in the Val di Noto, it is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In 1693 Ragusa was devastated by a huge earthquake, which killed some 5,000 inhabitants. Following this catastrophe the city was largely rebuilt, and many Baroque buildings from this time remain in the city. Most of the population moved to a new settlement in the former district of Patro, calling this new municipality 'Ragusa Superiore' (Upper Ragusa) and the ancient city 'Ragusa Inferiore' (Lower Ragusa). The two cities remained separated until 1926, when they were fused together to become a provincial capital in 1927.
