  • 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.
