First stop will be between the green hills of the vivid Resava River gorge where the medieval Manasija Monastery is located. This complex with a magic atmosphere was built as a real military fortification with towers and walls in order to protect Church of Saint Trinity from Ottomans. It was built during the rule of Despot Stefan Lazarević in the early 15th century. Turks conquered the Monastery in the 15th century, then Austrians in the 18th, so in the 19th century the Monastery was restored twice. Floor mosaics and wall frescoes along with architectural objects of Manasija represent a real rarity for Serbian medieval architecture and old Serbian painting. There are preserved ruins of the refectory and library that hosted Resava Scriptorium. The tour proceeds to the Resava Cave that was not discovered long ago so it keeps the title of one of the most interesting caves in Serbia.
