Description

Mileseva is a Serbian Orthodox monastery located near Prijepolje, in southwestern Serbia. It was founded by King Vladislav, in the years between 1234 and 1236. The church has frescoes by the most skillful artists of that time, including one of the most famous in Serbian culture, the "White Angel", which depicts an angel on Christ's grave. Mileseva is one of the most important Serbian sanctuaries and spiritual centers. In 1236, Vladislav moved the relics of his uncle Saint Sava from Trnovo in Bulgaria, where he died, to Mileseva. Some historians believe that the coronation of King Tvrtko I of Bosnia took place in Mileseva.
