Monastery ARILJE Srpski
The church of Saint Achilius in Arilje was founded by king Dragutin in late XIII century. By its architectural characteristics it belongs to the style of raška school but its dimensions are unique, so we can say it fallows the development of style which begun in Mileševa and was finished in magnificent cathedral of Dečani.

The church of Saint Achilius in Arilje was founded by king Dragutin in late XIII century. It had gained importance among serbian monasteries when Saint Sava founded the bishopric center in town of Moravice (today city of Arilje), in 1220. when Serbian church obtained its independence. Older church was replaced with Dragutins church.

It is single-nave building with dome, as typical raska temple. But on the exterior there are two important elements, altitude and usage of different colors to emphasize the visual effect. Those two elements caracterize serbian architecture on transition between XIII and XIV century when the simpicity of romanesque temples is gradually replaced with byzantine artistic forms
