Visit North Macedonia’s most prestigious monastery, which is located deep in the forest.

The monastery households of the biggest and finest wood-carved iconostases in the world. According to legends this iconostasis is a source of many ancient secrets. After some free time and optional lunch, you continue the journey towards the Duff Waterfalls.
