An extraordinary monastery. The church is in baroque style inside with black as the main colour. We visited the pharmacy where we bought herbs which are coltivated by the Pauline monks in the garden of the monastery. It worths visiting it!

Very beautiful monastery with a chapel in a village Olimje, herbs gardens and a small pharmacy where you can buy teas and natural medicine. Friendly monks, worth a visit.
