Dragovic Monastery


Dragovic Monastery (Serbian: Манастир Драговић) is a Serbian Orthodox monastery located on a hill downstream from the river Cetina not far from Vrlika in Croatia. When the artificial lake Perucha was created, the original monastery sank due to the movement of the mainland. The new Dragovic Monastery was built on a hill not far from the previous one. Remains of an old monastery by the lake can still be seen. The Dragovic Monastery once had a rich treasury in which it was kept through manuscripts from the 16th-18th centuries. Centuries, as well as very old books written in Greek, Latin, Italian, Russian and Church Slavonic. There were also very rare antimens, among which one was Hristofor Zefarovich from 1752. A large number of sacral objects mostly made in silver granulation and filigree from the 18th century were also part of this rich treasury. A part of the relics of St. Gregory is kept in the monastery church - St. Gregory was a Serbian educator and archbishop who was allegedly a descendant of the family of St. Nemanjich (from the dynasty of princes of Serbia).
