Overview

We start the tour with pick up you from your accommodation, continue the trip in way to visit Monastery Zrze – located near the village Zrze, around of Prilep. The numerous remnants of the ancient period-pillars, basilica remains, and other exponents speak of the rich cultural tradition, of this area. Traditionally the monks lived in carved out stone hollows, from the mountain side cliffs. This is believed to date back to the 3rd and 4th century.  Today, Zrze monastery complex consists of the church “St. Petar and Pavle”, the inns and several accessory rooms. Under the monastery are the monk cells, and their high number indicates the rich life of the monks, who belonged to the highest monastically order.
From here, we continue with 1 hours drive until  Monastery Treskavec – is a monastery situated on the rocky Mount Zlatovrv, 8 km north of Prilep. Built in the 12th century, it currently has only one monk. The monastery possesses a large collection of Byzantine frescoes. The oldest remaining date from the 15th century.
