Ostrog Monastery

The Ostrog Monastery was erected in 1665 in the mountain range of Ostroške grede. The area of the monastery belongs to the mountain tribe Bjelopavlići. The monastery was erected by St. Basil, who is considered to be a miracle worker and a healer, and this saint is celebrated on May 12. The name Ostrog originates from the old name for the fortress. Ostrog is divided into Lower and Upper Monastery which are about 2.5 km apart. The Upper Monastery is much more popular and it is engraved in the rocks. From the Lower Monastery You have a pedestrian path that leads to the Upper Monastery. But, the walk is very demanding because You go uphill all the way and You need about 40-minutes walk from one part of the monastery to the other. The entrance to the monastery is not charged.
