Monastery SOPOCANI Srpski
Monastry Sopoćani is located near the source of the river Raška in the region of Ras, and it was founded by king Uroš I, youngest son of king Stefan the First-Crowned. The main church was built in mid XIII century and it is dedicated to Holy Trinity. The exterior of the church has all the elements of Romanesque style but in the interior are preserved frescoes of the highest Byzantine style.

Monastry Sopoćani is located near the spring of the river Raška in the region of Ras, and it was founded by king Uroš I, youngest son of king Stefan the First-Crowned. Main church is dedicated to Holy Trinity and it was built between 1245 and 1260. as a family mausoleum of king Uroš I. Uroš moved the relics of his father Stefan to Sopoćani, which were originaly buried first in Studenica, than in Žiča, and his mother Ana Dandolo was also buried here. During the Ottoman rule the monastery was severely damaged and in XVI century the roof and the outer nartex were destroyed. Monastery remained in that condition until XX century when the reconstruction begun.

Church of Holy Trinity is single-nave building with dome and it has outer nartex with bell-tower.compared to the other churches of raška school it is different in exterior because it looks like Romanesque basilica with nave and side aisles, with central nave higher than the side ones. Façades, portal and windows are also in Romanesque style.

The earliest frescoes from Sopoćani are dated in the year 1273. and with their grandeur and monumentality they represent the highest achievements of Byzantine fresco-painting, especially the fresco Assumption of the Virgin.

Moj komentar je u vezi Nenada Pesica koga znam licno. Ima negde oko 25 godina otkako ga vise nisam videla i sam bas iznenadjena kako je zavrsio u Manastir i napustio djecu i familiju. Zaista nisam mogla da u to verujem sve dok nisam videla ovaj komentar od navodno njegove bivse supruge Snezana Pesic. Zaista mi je zao za Milosu i Stefanu jer to nije fer od njihovog oca da ih ostavi bez ikakvog kontakta. Ima milion drugih nacina da se problemi razrese i da sve bude u interest deci. Pokusala sam i ja mnogo puta da ga pronadjem ali bez uspeha. Nenad mi je ostao veoma drag covek u srcu zauvek. Snezana! Zao mi je mnogo za vas, ako mogu da pomgnem rado bih od sveg srca. Ako hoces pisi mi na cvesteves@iinet.net.au pa cemo porazgovarati malo vise o svemu. Pozdrav tebi i deci kako i vlasnika ovoj web sajta omogucivsi mi da stupim u kontakt sa tobom.

Nisam nikad bila u manastiru Sopo'ani, iako sam posetila i po vi[e desetina puta mnoge manastire u Srbiji. U manastiru Sopo'ani je moj biv[i mu\, otac moje maloletne dece Milo[a i Stefana rodjene 92, i 99 godine. On boravi u tom manastiru od 2005. god, od kad nismo niukakvom kontaktu, deci se nijednom nije javio ni telefonom ni pismeno, niti ih je od 2005. godine video.Decu izdržavam sama ali tatina ljubav i blizina im nedostaje. Molim Vas pomozite mom Milošu i Stefanu da imaju tatu? Potražite u manastiru Sopoćani Nenada Pešića i razgovarajte sa njim:hvala vam i bogu hvala.
