Welcome to Kruševac, Serbia, a city and the administrative center of the Rasina District, in Serbia. The city was founded in 1371, by Prince Lazar of Serbia, who used it as his seat. The Lazarica Church was built by Lazar between 1375–1378, in the Morava architectural style.
In preparation for the Battle of Kosovo (1389) against the Ottoman Empire, the Serbian army assembled in the city. After the battle, the city was held by his wife Princess Milica as her seat. The little remains of Lazar’s city is the Kruševac Fortress, which was declared a Cultural Monument of Exceptional Importance in 1979.
Today we have the honour of speaking with the arch priest of Lazarica Church Dragi Veškovac.
Ljubostinja is a Serbian Orthodox monastery near Trstenik, Serbia. Located in the small mountain valley of the Ljubostinja river not far from Krusevac. The monastery is dedicated to the Holy Virgin. The monastery was built from the 1388 to 1405. In Ljubostinja were buried Princess Milica, Lazar Hrebeljanović’s wife and Nun Jefimija, which after the Battle of Kosovo here became a nun along with a number of other widows of Serbian noblemans who lost their life’s in the battles on the river Maritsa and Kosovo Polje. Today Ljubostinja is female monastery which preserves and maintains about fifty nuns.
