Blaća Monastery

Blaća desert is special in so many ways it’s sufficient to say you won’t find anything similar anywhere near or far. It stretches on fifty-six acres, between Dragovode and Blaća bay. It is considered a desert, because of the scarce nature which surrounds the lovely  monastery. Blaća desert was a home to many generations of monks since the seventeenth century.  For a time in history this was the main school attended by pupils from the small villages nearby. The monastery holds the second largest telescope in Europe, which hasn’t been used for ages. Today, this is one of the most favorite hiking destinations and picture worthy sightings.
