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.

We went there on a weekday. The road was steep and narrow but worth it. Nuns welcomed us and showed us around. We heard the history of the place and were allowed to take a few pictures. You can also pray to Holly Portrait for health and/or for fertility. No tickets. There is a shop there where you can buy handmade souvenirs made by nuns and herbal products. Prices were reasonable. Nun gave us vater from their spring to drink and a cookie.

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
