Saint Peter in the Forest


St. Peter in the Forest is located in Istria, and got its name from the Benedictine monastery, which appears in historical documents from the 12th century with a vague note about its first 50 years of existence. It is certain that the monastery existed before 1134. years. Legend has it that Hungarian King Solomon spent some time in St. Peter's in the Forest after losing his throne in dynastic battles. He later moved to the monastery of St. Michael in Pula-Poli, where he died in 1089. Unlike other Istrian villages and towns in which the settlement was built, in Sveti Petar u Shumi there were no houses around the church or around the monastery. In his church of St. Peter and Paul, there is a picture of Our Lady of Czestochowa shedding bloody tears, and visitors from many countries come to see her.
