Located in the former Yugoslav republic of Macedonia, this beautiful monastery lies on a picturesque site high in the Osogovo Mountains, a few kilometres behind the town of Kriva Palanka. The monastery is as inspiring to-day as it was when it was established in the 12th century. Ancient frescoes adorn the walls and the monastery buildings are well preserved. Most of the monks have long gone but those who remain offer hospitality to tourists. Accommodation is provided in modestly equipped guestrooms of various configurations and a fully equipped kitchen is available for the use of guests. A cafe/restaurant and art gallery are on site. A bus from Kriva Palanka stops at the monastery.
