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.

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.

Arch of Constantine

The Arch of Constantine is situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. It was erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine I's victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312. Dedicated in 315, it is the largest Roman triumphal arch. The arch spans the Via triumphalis, the way taken by the emperors when they entered the city in triumph.

Though dedicated to Constantine, much of the decorative material incorporated earlier work from the time of the emperors Trajan (98-117), Hadrian (117-138) and Marcus Aurelius (161-180), and is thus a collage. The last of the existing triumphal arches in Rome, it is also the only one to make extensive use of spolia, reusing several major reliefs from 2nd century imperial monuments, which give a striking and famous stylistic contrast to the sculpture newly created for the arch.

The arch is 21 m high, 25.9 m wide and 7.4 m deep. Above the archways is placed the attic, composed of brickwork reveted (faced) with marble. A staircase within the arch is entered from a door at some height from the ground, on the west side, facing the Palatine Hill. The general design with a main part structured by detached columns and an attic with the main inscription above is modelled after the example of the Arch of Septimius Severus on the Roman Forum.
