    spomenik Knezu Lazaru

    A few steps away from the Lazarica church, there's this Prince Lazar Memorial ( Spomenik Knezu Lazaru). It was made in 1971 by sculptor Nebojša Mitric.

    If you take a closer look at the monument, you'll see different symbols from Prince Lazar's life.

    Prince Lazar Hrebeljanovic was a very powerful ruler in the 14th century. He died in the Kosovo battle in 1389, fighting for the survival of the country and people.

    vrata

    The 1st thing you'll notice when you come to the Lazarica Church will definitely be the doors. And they're really impressive, with wonderful details and all. The person who made them, Franz Winter, had 'golden' hands in my opinion.

    The doors were made of old oak trees cut down on Bagdala, a hill above Kruševac.

    Lazarica Church

    by Prasnjavi Updated Sep 27, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lazarica, an endowment of Prince Lazar, has survived to the present in Krusevac, his capital. Built about 1375, it has undergone considerable changes over the centuries, and was last restored early in the 20th century. As one of the earliest structures of the Morava school, it served as a model for many later churches. The church has a trefoil ground-plain. A certain delicacy is especially accentuated, both in the actual construction and by the small ornamental columns. The exterior of the church makes a vivid ampact with its red-and-white facades.
