Happy 700th (Almost)

Gracanica Monastery, Pristina, Kosovo

Gracanica Monastery, Pristina, Kosovo

This great postcard comes from Michaël from Starring You who recently paid a visit to Kosovo. He sent me this great postcard of the Gracanica Monastery, which is located in the capital of Kosovo, Pristina. This Serbian orthodox monastery was built by the Serbian king, Stefan Milutin, in 1321. That makes the monastery, 692 years old! I always have to mention just how cool I find it that Europe has had such a long and wonderful recorded history that has been preserved so well through time. Since 2009 the monastery has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as it should be. It’s pretty darn brilliant, thanks a bunch Michaël!
