Arrival at the monastery Žiča around 10:45 a.m. Žiča is the Serbian medieval monastery from the first half of the XIII century, located near Kraljevo and belongs to the Diocese of Žiča Serbian Orthodox Church. It was built by the first King of Serbia, Stefan Nemanjić, from 1206 to 1221, and a significant role in its raising had his brother, Saint Sava. During the Middle Ages, in Žiča kings were crowned and bishops from the Nemanjić dynasty were proclaimed, so Žiča was also known as Sedmovrata (Seven doors). The main monastery church, built in the Raska style, is dedicated to the Ascension of Christ. The monastery was repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt, and in 1979 declared a cultural monument of great significance and is under protection of the Republic of Serbia. Today this is a nunnery with 40 nuns.
