Beneath the remains of the Romanesque Church of St. George (dated in the 12th century), the remains of an older church, dedicated to St. Theodor, were discovered (probably built in the 5th or 6th century). The older Church was probably ruined in the fire and in the 12th century a new edifice was erected by the Archbishop of Bar named George (as evidenced by the tombstone) and it became an Archbishopric of the city of Bar. Both Churches were three nave basilicas. The Church of St. George had three apses. Remains of vaults indicate gothic elements.

High dignitaries of the Bar Archdiocese were also buried there: Bishop Jovan from the time of Prince Vladimir and Archbishops George, Peter and Sergius, who lived in the period from the 11th to the 12th century. The Church was turned into a Mosque in the 16th century and in 1881, the Church was completely destroyed by a gunpowder explosion or as some indicate - lightning (since the Church served as an ammunition depot).

Many Byzantine spolia were used during the construction. The Fortress lies far away of towns. Its purpose was probably to secure the Shkumbin river or a nearby market place.
119755 Batina Place The Village of Batina was given by King Stefan the Firstcrowned to the monastery of Žiča (ZSp. 571 - na krьmu i na odějanije služeštimь mi svetomu hramu semu: selo Talьsko i sь Ratinovь i sь Zaklopitovь Lukovь, Topolьica sь Vojušami, Ribьnica i sьvsěmi obьršьmi i sь Brěnovь, Žiča sь Batinomь, Ribizi sь Črьnovь Rěkomь ...). The Village of Batina has not preserved and might be situated within the village boundaries of modern Gotovac.

122336 Bijela, Church of St. Peter Place The Church of St. Peter in Bijela was probably built in the Early Christian period (probably in the 5th or 6th century). Fragments of plaster indicate that a pre-Romanesque building was erected on the basis of the original church, which has not been researched so far. For these fragments it could be assumed that they belong to the remains of the former Benedictine Monastery of St. Peter de Campo, which is also mentioned in the charter of Pope Clement VI (1342-1352) from 1345. After the demolition of the church, the present-day church of St. Peter was built by the family Burović from Perast, and some parts of the pre-Romanesque altar screen have been preserved and included in it.

Its a single nave edifice, with three bays skirted by pilasters and arches, and a rectangular apse. The Eastern and Western bays are almost equal in length, whereas the central one is much shorter and has a transverse barrel vault in the middle of which is a square dome covered by a pyramidal roof. The construction above the vaults gave the Church the look of a three-aisled basilica with a transept and a dome. In the second half of the 13th century, the West porch of the Church was turned into a narthex and was painted with frescoes at the beginning of the 14th century. Also, bell-towers were added resembling the Churches of St. Tryphon in Kotor, Djurdjevi Stupovi in Budimlja and the Monastery of the Mother of God in Hvosno. The Church furnishings, done in a pre-Romanesque style, were taken from the original (older) building.

132217 Dioclea Place In 431 AD Bishop Constantius of Doclea (Constantius episcopus civitatis Diocletianorum) took part at the Council of Ephesus, together with Bishop Paul of Dardania (Paulus episcopus Dardanorum). 20 years later, at the Council of Chalcedon, we find Bishop Evandrus of Doclea (Evandro Diocliae) among the participants. In the Synecdemus by Hierocles, an administrative and geographic source of the 6th century (ca. 527/28), only three cities (poleis) are listed in Praibalis, namely: Σκόδρα, Λίσσος and Δοκλέα. Among them only Δοκλέα is to be localised on the territory of today’s Montenegro, on the Northern periphery of today's capital Podgorica. Among them, Δοκλέα is to be localised on the territory of today’s Montenegro, being an excavation site on the Northern periphery of the capital Podgorica. The excavation site is surrounded by the rivers Širalija in the North, Zeta in the West and Morača in the South, was encircled by a city wall and is structured in a Western and an Eastern part. A via triumphalis cuts as central axis through the Western part. At its Western end lies a triumphal arch. Along the via triumphalis, i.e. on its Southern side, a Temple of Roma, an urban villa, a Temple of Diana as well as large and small thermae are to be found (from the West to the East). North of the via triumphalis a Basilica, a Forum and the Capitol temple are located (again from the West to the East). These monuments are roughly dated from the 1st to the 4th century AD. In the Eastern part, which is cut off from the Western part by a modern tarmac road, two basilicae were excavated. Basilica A is a three nave basilica with a semicircular apse in the interior and a polygonal apse on the exterior. It is dated to the 5th century AD and could have been renovated during the reign of the Byzantine Emperor Justinian I (reigned 527-565). To the South-West of Basilica A, a second basilica (Basilica B) was found. It is also a three nave basilica with a semicircular apse in the interior as well as exterior. Basilica B is dated to the period from the 4th to the 6th centuries. Later, a cruciform church was erected above Basilica B, which is dated to the Early medieval period (9th century?). Finally, a necropolis was found to the South-East of the city, outside the city walls, with tombs dating from the 1st to the 4th centuries. Another necropolis to the North-East is dated from the 2nd to the 5th centuries. Tatjana Koprivica identifies the aforesaid cruciform church (Basilica B) with the Church of St. Mary, which is mentioned in chapter IX of the “Letopis Popa Dukljanina” and in which King Budimir (Svetopluk, Svetopelek) was buried (in ecclesia sanctae Mariae in civitate Dioclitana), while his son and successor Svetolik was enthroned in the same church (ibique consecratus et coronatus est). Martin Homza has argued very recently in a new interpretation of chapter IX that the aforesaid Svetopluk should be identified with King Svatopluk I of Moravia (9th century), that the episode described in this very chapter should be placed on the territory of Pannonia and that it was re-worked for the purposes of the Dioclean ruler Mihailo Vojisavljević (reigned ca. 1046-1081) and his son Constantine Bodin (reigned 1081-1099) in the second half of the 11th century.

123292 Drisht Place The fortified settlement of Drisht was first mentioned in the reign of John I Tzimiskes (969-976) but can be traced back to the Roman town of Drivastum; it probably even was an earlier Illyrian fortification. In 1184 the Serbian king Stefan Nemanja of Rashka conquered Drisht, after the fall of the Serbian Empire in the second half of the 14th century the town became independent and minted their own coins. From 1369 to the 14th of April 1396 the Albanian noble family of Balsha ruled Drisht until they had to cede to Venice. During the Venetian rule (1396-1404) an cistern was added to the fortress.

118657 Dubrovnik Place Dubrovnik, in Italian Ragusa, port of Dalmatia, in South-Eastern Croatia. Situated on the Southern Adriatic Sea coast, it is usually regarded as the most picturesque city on the Dalmatian coast and is referred to as the "Pearl of the Adriatic". Dubrovnik (derived from dubrava in Serbian/Croatian, meaning "grove") occupies a promontory jutting into the sea under the bare limestone mass of Mount Srdj. The port's sea fortifications rise directly from the water's edge, and the massive round tower (completed 1464) of the Minc̆eta Fortress dominates the city on the landward side. The old city of Dubrovnik was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979. The city was founded about 614 as Rausa, or Ragusium, by Roman refugees fleeing the Slav and Avar sack of Epidaurus, just to the South-East. A colony of Slavs soon joined the Romans there, and from an early date the city formed a link between two great civilisations. After the fall of Rome, Dubrovnik was ruled by the Byzantine Empire. From the 9th to the 12th century Dubrovnik defended itself against foreign powers, and in the period 1205 to 1358 it acknowledged Venetian suzerainty, though it retained much of its independence. The city-republic was liberal in character, affording asylum to refugees of all nations. In 1272 the city received a statute that incorporated Roman and local practices. Situated at the seaward end of overland trade routes to Byzantium and the Danube region, it became a great mercantile power. Ragusan land trade flourished throughout the Balkans. In 1420, when Dalmatia was sold to Venice, Dubrovnik remained a free city in all but name. For centuries the people of Dubrovnik were able to preserve their city-republic by skillful maneuvering between East and West. A strategic treaty with Turkey protracted Dubrovnik’s liberty and maintained the opportunity for a major trading role between the Ottoman Empire and Europe. In 1667 an earthquake destroyed parts of the city, including the cathedral and many monasteries and palaces, and killed as many as 5,000 residents. The republic did not regain its prosperity until the Napoleonic Wars. From 1800 to 1805, as the only neutral Mediterranean state, it secured a large share of the carrying trade. Napoleon I (reigned 1804-1815) subjugated Dubrovnik in 1808, and the Congress of Vienna (1815) gave Dubrovnik to Austria; in 1918 it was incorporated into Yugoslavia. (FR D., 401 - urbs Rausium; AA I, 60, nap. 2 (16) - civitate Labusedi (!), archiepiscopus appellatur Ragusinus; FŠ LPD., 320 - Ragusium appellata est.

121685 Dubrovnik, Church of St. Andrew in Pile Place The Church of St. Andrew is situated in Pile, in Western part of Dubrovnik, outside the city walls. It was probably built between the 10th and 11th century. Its a single nave edifice with three bays and a dome. After the establishment of an independent chaplaincy at the parish of St. Michael in 1512, the early medieval church served as the presbytery of a larger church building. Today from the original medieval Church of St. Andrew, the Eastern wall with the apse has been largely preserved while the rest of the building has been remodeled.
121773 Dubrovnik, Church of St. Blaise (St. Mary) in Pustijerna Place The Church of St. Blaise (St. Blaise/Sv. Vlaho is a patron saint of the city) is situated North of Pustijerna in Dubrovnik. It was built in 972 after the saint miraculously saved the city. In the 12th century a new edifice was built (on the grounds of previous one) dedicated to St. Mary, on the request of its ktetor King Richard of England and a first mass was held in 1197. Under the floor of today's baroque cathedral the remains of the early medieval Church of St. Blaise were found, preserved to a height of about 2 m. Even though researchers disagree over the original plan of the Church it was probably a three nave basilica with a dome, that has been expanded over time. Three phases of construction of the early medieval Church have been established, in 972, around 1020 and in 1060. Later, in 1171 a new Church dedicated to St. Mary was built. Also, remains of stone furnishings and sculpture have been found, as well as fragments of fresco decoration.
121788 Dubrovnik, Church of St. John in Pustijerna (Gospa od Karmena) Place The Church of St. John (sancto Johanni de Papiss) as located in the far eastern part of Pustijerna in Dubrovnik (the southeastern fortress is named after the Church) and in the 17th century, over the remains of the Church, a new building was erected - Gospa od Karmena. Its was a single nave building with an apse (semicircular on the inside and rectangular on the outside), built probably in the 9th century and in the 11th century, with the addition of lesenes and girdles in the interior, it became a vaulted edifice. In the 13th century the Church was extended on its Western side. In the 17th century, a new building was erected on the grounds of the former, now destroyed, Church of St. Ivan. Numerous fragments of stone decoration were found during archaeological investigations.
118309 Dubrovnik, Church of St. Luke Place The Church of St. Luke was probably built in the first half of the 12th century. It is now part of a larger Gothic church.
117961 Dubrovnik, Church of St. Nicholas in Prijeko Place The Church of St. Nicholas is situated on the North-Eastern part of Dubrovnik, in Prijeko, on a very important urban point and on a cliff that rose steeply above the lowland part (campus). It is also known by different names such as Ecclesia S. Nicole de Campo, appresa Doghana, Saneto Nicola de piazza or Saneto Nicola in salinize, because in the 14th century was built another Church dedicated to St. Nicholas. The Church of St. Nicholas in Dubrovnik is mentioned around 1100 in connection with the war between Dubrovnik and the Serbian King Konstantin Bodin (reigned 1081- ca. 1099). It's a single nave building with four bays and a dome, similar to the Church of St. Peter in Omiš. Its apse is semicircular inside and rectangular on the outside. The walls of the apse and dome were decorated with shallow semicircural niches. In the course of time the Church was rebuilt several times. The northern lateral nave was annexed to the original pre-Romanesque church and the altar area was rebuilt. The southern side, dome and apse still have shallow decorative niches.
118118 Dubrovnik, Church of St. Peter Place The Church of St. Peter is situated in Dubrovnik,East of the byzantine castle (Castello), and was probably built at the end of the 10th century and is the oldest cathedral in the city. The cathedral complex has not survived, and what has remained is the crypt that now lies underneath the Baroque Church of St. Catherine. The oldest mention of the Church is in the document from 1386. By the 16th century the Church was altered, especially after the earthquake in 1667 when it was rebuilt and incorporated into the new Church of St. Catherine. During the 19th century the Church has undergone significant changes. The Church was a three nave basilica with a transept and a dome, with an apse on the East side which is rectangular on the outside and semicircular on the inside, with a crypt bellow the apse and the nave. Some researchers assumed that the narthex on the West side was framed by bell towers. Therefore its an edifice with a strong Byzantine and Western (Romanesque) influence. The facade was divided by shallow niches. Numerous stone church furnishing including capitals, pilasters, lintels, ciborium, altar screen, etc. has been found testifying the time of the construction.
117934 Dubrovnik, Church of St. Stephen Place The Church of St. Stephen was, according to local tradition, the first Church built in Dubrovnik. This would date its construction to the 8th century. It was first mentioned by Emperor Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus's (reigned 913-959) 'De administrando imperio' in 949, indicating that the Church is situated in the center of the city housing the remains of St. Pancras. It is a single-nave edifice with an apse semicircular inside and rectangular on the outside. It was built probably in the 8th and 10th century, and later in the so-called Romanesque period, 11th and 13th century, the Church was extended on its Eastern and Western part. On the inner side of the north and south walls a clear division between these two construction phases can be seen. Fragments of stone sculpture has been found and is dated widely - from the 8th to the beginning of the 12th century. Extensions continued in the late medieval and early modern period changing the overall appearance of the Church. After a massive earthquake in 1667 the Church was severely damaged and was never restored.
121781 Dubrovnik, Church of Sts. Cosmas and Damian Place The Church of Sts. Cosmas and Damian (today's Church of St. Bartola) is situated within the complex of the Bishops Palace (Palace Sarkočević) in Dubrovnik. It was probably built in the 10th or the beginning of the 11th century. According to an inscription from 1749 at the side entrance of the building near the Church we are familiar with the former dedication of the Church. In the 11th century the Church was given to the Benedictines and was demolished in the 13th century. The Church was a single nave vaulted building similar to the Church of St. Peter and Paul in Mljet and St. Philip and Jacob in Pelješac. On the west facade of today's church of St. Bartola remained a fully preserved decorated portal that originally belonged to the Church of St. Cosmas and Damian. At the end of the 18th century, the Sorkočević Palace was built next to the Church of St. Bartola.
121717 Dubrovnik, St. Mary of Castellum (Sv. Marija od Kaštela) Place The Church of St. Mary of Castellum (Sv. Marija od Kaštela) is situated in the South-Western part of Dubrovnik. The original appearance and typical affiliation of the pre-Romanesque church of St. Mary is not known. Based on the decorative features of the pilaster above the entrance door and another with a cross motif, the Church can be dated to the end of the 8th or the beginning of the 9th century. The Church probably turned into a cathedral when it was built to the South side next to the smaller and older church of St. Sergius and Bacchus (built in the 6th century). Some researchers suggest that it is possible that the current chapel dedicated to St. Mary, in the monastery complex, is actually a former Church of St. Mary. In the 12th century it became a Benedictine monastery.
117999 Dubrovnik, the Sigurata Church in Prijekom Place The Sigurata Church is located in the northwestern part of the Prijeko area, in the historic center of Dubrovnik, near the Franciscan monastery. Today it's part of the nunnery of the Franciscan school sisters. The name Sigurata comes from the Latin name for the Transfiguration of the Lord - Transfiguratio Domini. It was a single nave edifice with a dome. The building was divided into three bays with semicircular vaults and an apse that is semicircular inside and rectangular on the outside. Today, the Church is a three-nave building as a result of the last major reconstruction that took place after the earthquake in 1667. Two aisles were added and connection with the side aisles was established by removing the walls between the girders in all three aisles. Research in the 20th century identified two older phases of construction. The first points to the crossroads of late antiquity and the early Middle Ages (from the 6th to the 8th century), the second to the early Middle Ages (9th century), while the pre-Romanesque single-nave building with a dome probably dates from the 10th or the 11th century. The church changed after that, and it probably got three naves even before the great earthquake. Fragments of fresco decoration probably date in the 14th century. It recalls characteristics of the Churches of St. Peter in Omiš, St. Nicholas in Dubrovnik and St. Michael in Ston.

This cult place was known from the Early Christian period with the remains of a three-nave basilica that was discovered in its close proximity. During the founding of the autocephalous Serbian archbishopric in 1219, the seat of the sixth (Hvostanska), of the seven Serbian bishoprics, was located here. At that time the Monastery was erected. In the 14th century it became a metropolitan archdiocese. After 1690 (the First Great Migration of the Serbs) this place was abandoned and destroyed. The material from the Monastery was used in the construction of mosques and other buildings. The building was erected following the plan of the Žiča Monastery, probably around 1220. It was a single nave edifice with three bays and a dome, an apse that was semicircular on the inside and rectangular on the outside and a narthex with two bays. In 1230 (when the temple was about to become a cathedral seat of the Serbian Orthodox Eparchy of Hvosno), following the ground plan of the Žiča Monastery, two paracclesia were added on the Northern and Southern sides of the narthex, two towers with chapels (each had an apse) and exonarthex with six bays. Some researchers believe there was a catechumeneon at the upper floor of the exonarthex. The Church is in compliance with the Raška architecture. In the Monastery researchers found remains of the dwelling-house, fortifications, nearby cemetery and a cast bell in which two shrouds were hidden (one from the 14th century and the other from the 16th century, the work of the famous artist monk Longin).

Some researchers believe it was built on the grounds of a Roman and later Early Christian edifice. The assumption that an Early Medieval Church was created by adapting an earlier Early Christian building is supported by the unusual thickness of the walls. The different way of masonry on certain parts of the wall speaks in favor of the dating of the subsequent intervention in the 14th or 15th century.
118051 Island of Koločep, Church of St. Barbara in Borje (Gospa Nuncijata) Place The remains of the Church of St. Barbara are located above the eastern ridge of Gornje Čelo, south of the road leading from Dinkovo Selo to Rajić's house, in an area called Borje.

Unfortunately, the results of the research, conducted in 1975, have not been published yet so we don't have enough information regarding this Church. The Church is a single nave edifice with a dome, with an apse which is semicircular inside and rectangular on the outside. It was probably build sometime between 9th and 11th century.
121202 Island of Koločep, Church of St. Michael Place The Church of St. Michael is situated on Island of Koločep, dated in the 11th century.

Its a single nave building with three bays, probably with a dome and an apse that is semicircular inside and rectangular on the outside. Its facade was dissected by shallow blind niches. Side walls probably had lesenes connected by a series of blind arcades. After collecting fragments all over the island, the altar screen was finally reconstructed showing, in relief, an image of Archangel Michael and a partially preserved inscription. Most researchers recognized Byzantine influence.
117971 Island of Koločep, Church of St. Nicholas (St. Vitus) Place The Church of St. Nicholas is situated on a small plateau, halfway between Donje and Gornje Čelo.

On the other hand, fresco decoration indicates othervise. Its a single nave edifice with a dome on pendantives, an apse which is semicircular inside and rectangular on the outside and has facade divided by lesenes. Inside, the edifice is divided with two lesenes in three bays. Fragments of the original doorpost decorated with a motif of double three-bar knots have been found, and were later used as building material. Parts of the altar screen, that probably belonged to the original Church, are decorated with various braided motifs of geometric design. Remains of early medieval frescoes, that date to the end of the 11th century, represent figures of saints and have been preserved on the walls and on the vaults of the Church. Some researchers have found stylistic similarities with frescoes of the Church of St. John (Ivan) on the Island of Šipan. On the Western side of the Church is a bell-tower with a bronze bell made in the 16th century by Ivan Krstitelj Rabljanin, which was brought from the Church of St. Mary in Donje Čelo in the 20th century.

118317 Island of Koločep, Church of St. Sergius Place The Church of St. Sergius was probably built at the end of the 11th century, even though Ivica Žile supposes it might have been built between the 9th and 10th century judging by the remains of an altar, pillar and a capital. The Church is nowadays almost completely ruined. Its a single nave building with an apse that is semicircular inside and rectangular on the outside. There is no information about the dome nor about the girders that would divide the three-bay vault, but by analogy with other preserved Churches of the same type on the island (St. Nicholas and St. Anthony of Padua) its original existence can be assumed. The South wall is preserved best, at the height of approximately 3m, and has on its central bay a niche.

Its a single nave building with a dome, with an apse that is semicircular inside and rectangular on the outside. The Church also has gothic elements such as a gothic arches and vaults which led researchers to believe that it was finished in the 14th century, at which time it received a new dedication to Saint Anthony of Padua.

121916 Island of Mljet, Double Churches in Polače Place The remains of two Churches are situated in the Eastern part of the Polače bay, on the Island of Mljet. The Double Churches (the Northern and the Southern one) were built in the 5th century.

In the early Middle Ages, lesenes were added to the Northern basilica in order to change the wooden into a barrel vaulted structure. At the same time, a vestibule was added to its West side. The walling of the Southern portal, between the two early Christian buildings, proves that since then the Southern part of the complex of Double basilicas was no longer in function. The church space shaped in this way is known in the pre Romanesque architecture of Dalmatia

Hahn writes on this issue as follows: "Was den Landschaftsnamen betrifft, so braucht der Leser keinen Schreib- oder Druckfehler zu vermuthen, denn die Küstenebene zwischen dem Mat und Drin heisst bei den Eingeborenen Italia, und wenn ich der zahlreichen geographischen Parallelen an den beiden sich gegen überliegenden Ufern des Adria gedenke, von welchen ein Theil in den albanesischen Studien zusammengestellt ist, so halte ich es für wahrscheinlicher, dass dieser Name der Urzeit angehöre, als dass er in späterer Zeit von Italien entlehnt worden sei."

The first building was a martyrium (a central plan edifice) built in 809, financed by Andrea Saracenis, a famous citizen of Kotor, who bought the relics of St. Tryphon from Venetian merchants. This church is mentioned in the work "De Administrando Imperio (DAI)" of the Byzantine Emperor Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus (reigned 913-959). Remains of a pre-Romanesque building were found along the North-Eastern segment of the wall of today's Romanesque cathedral of St. Tryphon. Fragments of stone furniture, especially a ciborium, have remained and are dated to the 9th or 10th century. The second edifice was erected from 1124 (during the time of Bishop Ursac of Kotor) until 1166 (when all three church altars were consecrated). It was built in Romanesque style with elements from Byzantine architecture. Its appearance has changed over the centuries, most often due to frequent earthquakes. The cathedral was built as a three-nave basilica with a dome above the middle aisle of the main nave of the church, which was removed after two earthquakes during the 16th century. Each of the naves has an apse. The central apse is decorated with a sumptuous Gothic triforium. Two bell towers are on the Western façade. The interior was painted with frescoes in 1331.

Archaeological excavations have found a 6th to 8th centuries cemetary. Kruja was first mentioned as bishopric see in 879, but it is unclear if the settlement already was fortified. Files of the time of the rule of King Alphonso V of Aragon and Naples suggest that this was a privilege given by Emperor Manuel I Comnenos given in the year 1165. In 1253 Kruja subortinated itself to the Emperor of Nicaea John III Vatatzes but already in 1258 Kruja was conquered by despote Michael II of Epirus and the town became again Byzantine after an Angevin Intermezzo from 1268-1280. Andronikos II Palaiologos granted several privileges to the town and made it the capital of a Byzantine province. 1342 Krja was conquered by Stefan Uroš IV Dušan. After the disintegration of the Serbian empire the local noble family of Thopia ruled over Kruja. After two years under Venetian rule it was ruled by the Ottomans for a short time, before again being independent until 1415 when Kruja was conquered by the Ottomans. Kruja was also the capital of the Skanderbeg rebellion from 1443 onwards. It was three times unsuccessfully besieged by the Ottomans and only fell in 1478 after the death of Skanderbeg (1468). The fortress is quite well preserved, despite an earthquake in 1617 and a part-destruction after an rebellion in the year 1832. Šufflay suggests that Kroja was, like other towns and cities in Illyria and Dalmatia, mainly inhabited by a Romanesque speaking population well into the 12th century. Only after the decay of the Latin population the region became Albanised. Kruja was part of a defensive system for Dhyrrachion/Durres.

The remains of sculpted stone furnishing in the altar and the nave indicate a richly equipped edifice. A Greek inscription on the altar screen mentions the name of Saint Archangel Michael, which led researchers to believe that he is the patron Saint of the church. This very inscription has been interpreted in two ways: 1. + Ο Θ(EO)C TH ΠΡΕC(BEIA) ...E TON (Π)ETR(0N)I ... 2. + Ο Θ(EO)C TH ΠΡΕC(BEIA) ... (ΦYΛATT)E TON (Π)ETR(0N)I ... Moreover, it mentions the name of a certain Peter, who could have been the donor of the basilica. Another inscription in Latin has been read as follows: + (MICH)AEL ET IOH(AN)E DIE ... ET GLORIA BEATO MIXAEL AR(CHANGELO) ... N ... LIN Unfortunately, no other written account has been preserved on this basilica. Fragments of low-relief sculpture with pre-Romanesque motifs of flowers, three-ribbon interlace, crosses, etc. covering the altar, the ciborium and column capitals were found. The remains of the ciborium are similar to those found in Kotor and Ulcinj dated to the 9th century.

132014 Monasterium S. Mariae Place The French historian Nicholas Petrovitch sheds light on a repeated mention of the queen Hélène d'Anjou's sister named Maria in D. Farlati's oeuvre. Here, Farlati mentions that she, together with her son Anselme, were buried in the Monastery of Saint Mary or Saint Marcus in Ulcinj and that the monastery was (probably) founded in 1288, as were other franciscan establishment of the Hélène d'Anjou period: "[...] Monasterium S. Marci de Dulchinio per Dominam Mariam de domo Chieriz de Francia Reginam de Zenta [...] Qua regina jacet sepulta in Ecclesia S. Marci de Dulchinio coram altare majore cum Domino Anselmo ejus filio;" (Farlati VI, p. 440). "[...] Monasterium S. Mariae de Dulcigno per dominam Mariam de Domo Chiutiz de Francia Reginam de Zenta [...] Quae regina jacet sepulta in templo S. Mariae, al. S. Marci, de Dulcigno coram altare majore sub pavimento cum Anselmo ejus filio." (Farlati VII, p. 59).
118514 Monastery of Cetinje (Cetinjski manastir) Place The Cetinjski manastir of the Serbian Orthodox Church (Orthodox Metropolis of Montenegro and the Littoral) in the historical capital of Montenegro, Cetinje, houses an renowned and very important treasury, which preserves manuscripts, incunabula, icons, liturgical objects and textiles. Monastery complex represents a city-fortress and consists of the Church dedicated to the Nativity of the Virgin, lodgings and a cemetery surrounded on the West by stone walls. The Monastery was founded by Prince Ivan Crnojevic of Zeta in 1484 as the cathedral monastery of the Eparchy of Zeta. It is believed that the ktetor was inspired by the Venetian architecture, during his stay in Ancona, and was a three-nave basilica with the dome, with elements of Renaissance architecture. The Monastery was devastated in 1692 and rebuilt in 1701 by Mitropolitan Danilo Petrovic-Njegos, above the remains of the court of Ivan Crnojevic. It was burnt and reconstructed in 1743 by Metropolitan Sava Petrovic Njegos. By the end of the 18th century the Monastery was devastated once more, rebuilt several more times and finally in 1927 rebuilt for the last time. The Church of the Bogorodica in Cetinje was built by Ivan Crnojević (ZSp. 778-81 - na mestě glagolěměmь Cětině vь slavu i vь hvalu toe gospožde Matere Božie vь ime Roždьstva). The Cetinje Monastery was built in 1484 (Marković 150). The Monastery hosts important relics: right hand of St. John the Baptist, remains of St. Peter of Cetinje, particles of the True Cross, royal crown of Serbian king Stephen Uroš III Dečanski, icon of the Philermos Mother of God, etc.

119625 Morača Monastery, Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Place The Morača Monastery is situated at the valley of the Morača River in the Municipality of Kolašin in Montenegro. It was built by Stefan, Son of Vukan Nemanjić (the Grand Prince of Zeta) and grandson of Stefan Nemanja (ZN 17). The katholikon is dedicated to the Dormition of the Holy Mother of God. It is a single-nave edifice with three bays, narthex and a dome. It has a side chapel dedicated to St. Stephen. All major elements of the Žiča Monastery and the Patriarchate of Peć have merged into this edifice. The main portal is in Romanesque style. The fresco decoration of the 13th century has been poorly preserved (the majority of the decoration was ruined, when the monastery was ravaged by the Ottomans in the 16th century). The church was renovated in the 20th century.

The Church is a single-nave building with an apse, rectangular on the outside and semicircular on the inside. The nave was probably vaulted with a barrel vault and covered, like the apse, with a gabled roof. With this shape, the church typologically fits into the group of single-nave buildings with flat (undecorated) wall surfaces.

117512 Nagoričino, Church of Saint George Place According to the Life of Saint Prohor Pčinjski (11th c.) Prohor settled in a small cave in the deserted area of Nagoričino in Žegligovo as a hermit (vь glubokuju pustynnju Nagoričeskuju). In Nagoričino also his hermitage (cave) is to be found. The original construction of the Church of Saint George in Nagoričino is dated to the 11th century and associated with Saint Prohor Pčinjski or the Byzantine Emperor Romanos IV Diogenes (reigned 1068-1071). The Life of Saint Joakim Osogovski from the 12th century gives an account on the building activity of an anonymous Emperor (hram prpodbnomu vъ ime svjatogo velikomčenika Hristvo Gjeōrgia). The church fell without doubt into disrepair in the last quarter of the 13th century. According to the Slavonic inscription at the Western entrance to the narthex, the church was renewed by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) in the year 1313. In this inscription a certain abbot called Andonij is also mentioned. This hint suggests that a monastery existed at that time near the church itself (Izvoleniemь božiemь sьzda sja domь svetago i velikoslavnago mjačenika Hristova Geōrgijě vь dny svjatorodnago i prěvysokago kralě Uroša Milutina, bogomь samodrьžьcu vsei srbьskoi zemli i primorьskoi, pri bogočьstivěi kralici Simonidě, i pri igumeně Andony, v lěto 6821 [1313]). According to the Slavonic inscription from 1318 in the interior, the church was decorated with frescoes by order of the Serbian King Milutin under the abbot Benjamin (Božiemь izvoljenijemь sьzʼda se ōt osnovanie, i popisa se, čьstnii hramь podaijemь vsakiim prevysokago krala Stefana Uroša, vь lěto 6826, pri igumeně Beniamine). Another inscription in the interior above the Western entrance has not been preserved. Between 1300 and 1318/21 a certain anagnost Radin from Nagoričino in Žegligovo (anagnosta Radina Nagoričanina izь Žegligova) wrote a gospel for the priest Zagoranin in Sušica. The old Serbian Genealogies (rodoslovi) and Annals (letopisi) report that the Serbian King Milutin had founded or endowed numerous monasteries, amongst others also the Monastery of Saint George in Nagoričino (Nagoričino svetomu Geōrgiju; i vь Nagoričine svetago Gjeōrgija; i druguju vь Nagoričinu; i vь Nagoričine Georgia). In the same sources Žegligovo and Nagoričino are subsumed in one geographical unit (i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovo crьkov svetago velikomučenika Georgia; i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovu crkovь svetago velikomučenika Georgia; i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovu crkovь svetago mučenika Georgia; i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovo crkovь svetago velikomučenika Georgia; i u Nagoričinu na Žegligovu crkovь svetago velikomučenika Georgija). The Lives of the Serbian Kings and Archbishops by Archbishop Danilo II and his successors confirm the renewal of the church under the Serbian King Milutin (i crkovь svetaago Georgьgija nagoričьskaago). The abbot Benjamin from Nagoričino is named in the list of abbots in two Serbian charters (1317 and one forgery from the 15th century, where he is referrred to as nagoričkii Beniaminь, respectively nagorički Beniaminь). According to the aforesaid Lives of the Serbian Kings and Archbishops, the Serbian King Stefan Uroš III Dečanski (reigned 1321-1331) gathered his army in the forefront of the Battle of Velbužd in the first half of 1330 on a field called Dobrič, located in today's South-Eastern Serbia at the confluence of the rivers Južna Morava and Toplica. He intended to confront the Bulgarian Tsar Michael III Šišman (reigned 1323-1330) at this place. When messengers informed him that the Bulgarian Tsar had intruded Serbian territory near the castle of Zemen on the upper reaches of the river Struma, where the then border of the Serbian Kingdom lay, he set his army in march and first moved to Nagoričino, where he prayed in the Church of Saint George (priide vь monastirь svoi kь svetomu mučeniku Hristovu Georьgiju Nagoričьskomu). The victory of King Stefan Dečanski at the Battle of Velbužd on 28 July 1330 is described by the Serbian annals and the aforesaid Lives of the Serbian Kings and Archbishops. According to the Serbian annals, King Stefan Dečanski captured Michael Šišman and brought him to Žegligovo (aduxere eum in Segligovo), where the Bulgarian Tsar died and was buried in the Church of Saint George in the village of Nagoričino (et sepulchro datus est in Ecclesia sancti Georgii in pago Gorichina). On the contrary, the Lives of the Serbian Kings and Archbishops describe that the Bulgarian ruler had already died in the battle. His corpse was brought to the Church of Saint George in the place called Nagoričino (prěnesenu Georьgija vь městě rekoměmь Nagoričьskaago) and entombed there. In a ledger containing a list of debtors and guarantors of the Ragusan merchant Mihailo Lukarević from Novo Brdo, dated to the period from 1432 to 1438, a certain Radiuoj Tatich from Nagoričino, who was born in Kokÿno (de Chochina in Nagorizno/Nagorzno) is mentioned. On his campaign against the town of Skutari (now Shkodra in Albania) in May 1474 the Ottoman Pasha of Rumeli stayed with his army in Nagoričino, which was three days of journey away from Kosovo Polje (Bassa Romanie cum numeroso et valido exercitu dimissus est in loco dicto Nagoricino, distanti a Cossovo itinere dierum trium). In the Pšinski pomenik (15th c.) Nagoričino is attested as Staro Nagoričino ("Old Nagoričino"), while the toponym of Nagoričino is obviously used for Mlado Nagoričino. Nagoričino is registered in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from 1519 with the attribute "Staro" and from the years 1570 to 1572 as Gühne Nogoriç, Köhne-i Nagoriç and Köhne-yi Nogoriç (with the meaning of "Staro Nogorič"). The assumption that Edward Brown (1668-1669, published in 1673) saw the Church of Saint George in Nagoričino, while passing through Kumanovo, is probably incorrect ("near which [scil. Kumanovo] there is still a Greek Monastery, upon the side of the hills"). Rather he wrote about Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska in the Skopska Crna Gora, to the West of Kumanovo. In 1704 the Serbian scribe Jerotej Račanin refers to Nagoričino as 40 churches ("40 crkvy" or Turkish "krka klisa"). From the viewpoint of Art History, it should be emphasised that the Serbian King Milutin had the upper part of the Church of Saint George built on the destroyed walls of an older edifice in 1312/13 as evidenced by the aforesaid inscription above the Western entrance. The frescoes in the church were completed in 1317/18 according to the aforesaid inscription from 1318 in the interior and were executed by the painters Michael and Eutychius. The Church of Saint George is in the form of an inscribed cross with five domes, with barrel and groin vaults and a semicircular apse on the East (the altar space is relatively large and is continuing to the space of the nave), while the older edifice is clearly visible (especially on the Northern side of the church).
123918 Ndroq Place The fortification near Ndroq was first mentined in the Ottoman Defter in 1431-1432. However archeological surveys suggest a first building phase in late antiquity and use throughout the medieval period. In Ottoman times the fortress was surrounded by a small town.
119096 Nedokusi Place The Village of Nedokusi was given by King Uros I to the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God in Ston. A Part of the village was also given to the Monastery of Sveti Peter and Paul in Lim (ZSp. 601 XV, 595 X; LjS SP., III, 9 - Selo Nedakusy).
122112 Nehaj Fortress Place The Nehaj fortress was First mentioned in 1542. It can be found on the Map of Bar of the year 1550 on the left upper corner of the Map.
117921 Nerežišće, Island of Brač, Church of St. George Place The Church of St. George is situated on the Island of Brač, in Nerežišće. Some researchers believe it was built in the 6th or the 7th century, while others date it in the 13th to 14th century. Yet most believe it was built in the 11th century. This Church is a single nave edifice with semicircular apse. At the door of the church is a hollow lunette that is the only source of light. The interior is vaulted with two transverse bands. Niches are arranged on all walls. Lesenes are on the façade. In the Church is one of the finest examples of Renaissance reliefs depicting St. George killing a dragon, artwork of probably Bračanin Lozanić in the 15th century.
119093 Nevizrake Place The Village of Nevizrake was given by King Vladislav to the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God in Bistrica (ZSp. 590 I - Ja, pomoštiju i milostiju Božijeju věn'čanny kraalь vsěhь sr'bskihь zemlь i pomorьskihь, Stefanь Vladislavь, naměstьnikь onogo blaženago i oca mi, ponaavljaju i oněhь prьvodan'naja sela i potvrьždaju simь moimь hrisovulomь Bystricu okolo crьkve, Nevyzrake oboje.

131780 Nikšić, Necropolis with 125 Tombstones Place There is a necropolis with 125 stećak-type tombstones near the Orthodox Church of St. Peter. There used to be a larger necropolis on this site. On some of these specimens writings can be identified mentioning the Count Drakul (dated 17th century) and Stanko Lainović (dated 18th century).
117840 Nin, Baptistery of St. John Place The Baptistery of St. John was built around 800 and demolished in 1746. The baptistery's remains are probably lying under the sacristy of the Church of St. Anselm. The font of the baptistery is identified with the font of Duke (knez) Višeslav (died ca. 803) in the Museum of Croatian Archeological Monuments at Split.
118063 Nin, Church of St. Mary Place The Church of St. Mary in Nin was possibly built in the 6th century and then refurbished in Pre-Romanesque style in the 11th century. It was demolished in the year 1646 in order to provide building material for the renovation of the city fortifications. It was a three nave edifice with a semicircular apse on the inside and pentagonal on the outside. It seems that the Church floor was covered with mosaics. Remains of stone Church furnishing has been found.
118262 Nin, Church of St. Nicholas Place The Church of St. Nicholas was built around 1100 and is situated in Prahuljama, near Nin. It is a central building with four arms arranged around a central circular core, three of which form the apse, and the fourth is the entrance arm. Above the central space rises a dome in a tambour with an cross-ribbed vault. Seven kings were coronated in this building.
117820 Nin, Church of the Holy Cross Place The Church of the Holy Cross was built around 800. Its entrance bears an inscription in crude capitals which says: "GODEAI IUPPANO ?ISTO DOMO CO". The inscription is interpreted as "Godečaj Iuppano isto domo construxit". Thus, the church is interpreted to have been a court chapel of the Croatian rulers, who had their court next to the church. It was also used as a sepulcher. The Church was named the smallest cathedral in the world. Its an edifice shaped in the form of a Greek cross whose arms are vaulted, has three apses and a dome of irregular ellipsoidal shape. Noticeable shifts from the correct axis are the result of tracking the sun so the Church served (and is still used) as a kind of clock and calendar.
121214 Nivice Place (HI SDSArv., 32 - karye-i Nivice).

122689 Novi Bar, Church Place The church in Novi Bar has two phases of construction. The first one is a triconchos built in the 6th century. The second is a single nave edifice dated to the 11th century. The older building was demolished before the 11th century, and in the middle part of the triconchos and in Eastern apse a smaller pre-Romanesque church was built. When the Church of St. Theodore was erected in Bar, a mosaic floor from the triconchos edifice, which was already in ruins at that time, was transferred.
121219 Novi Pazar Place (DA Consules, 15, 157 - in Novi Paxar).
119427 Novi Pazar (Ras), Church of St. Peter Place The Church of St. Peter in Ras was built by order of the Serbian Prince Mutimir (reigned 851-891) around 870-890 on a hill of Stari Ras ("Old Ras"), in today’s city of Novi Pazar. (VĐ ŽSN., 18 i 19 - se v'toroje kr'Štenije prijeti ... u V'seslavnyju ... Petra i Pavla). It was decorated with fresco paintings at the beginning of the 10th century with the merit of the Serbian Prince Petar Gojniković (reigned 892-918). The building, made from sandstone and travertine, is a rotunda encircling an irregular tetraconch, with vaults in the form of semicircles. Above the central area is a dome which is octagonal on the outside. The Eastern conch served as an altar, while on its Northern, Western and Southern sides the rotunda is embraced by a horseshoe-like ambulatory above which are galleries looking onto the nave. On the exterior, the edifice resembles pre-Romanesque style, with shallow arched niches placed on the upper part of the drum and the lateral wall of the rotunda, along the apse. Niches can be seen in the interior as well. The only preserved sculptural decorations inside and around blind niches in the interior of the church are floral and geometrical motifs along with crosses engraved into fresh plaster. The fresco paintings have mostly faded. Today some of the decoration can be seen in the drum with five scenes associated with Christ’s nativity and childhood (Annunciation, Visitation, Nativity, Adoration of the Magi and Presentation at the Temple). In the squinches, one can see parts of scenes of the Baptism and Betrayal of Christ, and on the Western wall, below the drum, parts of the Crucifixion. All compositions were framed with wide bands, rimmed with red. On elongated figures, red-violet and yellow-golden tones prevail. The background is mostly golden, while grey is seen once it progresses towards the top. Art historians believe that Byzantine masters were hired to decorate the church (they also find similarities with the Church of St. Stephen in Kastoria and the Church of Transfiguration near Koropi, Attica).
122200 Novi u Pivi Place The fortified settlement of Novi u Pivi was mentiond by the Aragonese King Alfonso V in the year 1444. Novigrad can not sufficiently be localised. It is possible to lie below the surface of Lake Piva after the construction of the Mratinje dam.

The tomb of Archbishop Sava II is located between these two sarcophagi, also placed along the South wall. The Church was fresco decorated in the 13th century.

119497 Prevlaka, Monastery and Church of St. Archangel Michael Place The Church of St. Archangel Michael, also known by the name "Tumba sancti Archangeli", is situated on the small island of Prevlaka in the Bay of Tivat. There are three layers of edifices on this site. The first church was built on the basis of a 6th century basilica (with graves found as well), which became a three nave basilica by the end of the 6th century. A Benedictine monastery dedicated to St. Archangel Michael was probably built in the 9th century. It was a three nave basilica with a semicircular apse in the center and two rectangular little apses on the sides (which are still being debated in art history, since no similar examples have been found), a narthex and a bell tower on the South-East part of the edifice. A large number of fragments of architectural sculpture of the pre-Romanesque style has been preserved, and some of its pillars were moved to the Church of St. Tryphon in Kotor in 1166. In the 12th century this place was ruined and deserted. This abbey, according to the oldest preserved document in Kotor from 1124, was meant to be the Cathedral of Kotor. At the beginning of the 13th century (1220s) the bishopric of Zeta was founded at this very place by Saint Sava (ca. 1175-1236). Therefore, the second church was built on the remains of an abandoned and demolished Benedictine monastery. It had a dome and strong buttresses and a parraklesion was added on the North side. Numerous graves have also been found. The monastery was abandoned at the end of the 14th century and destroyed in the middle of the 15th century, following the killing of 70 monks. In the immediate vicinity of the ruins of this church, i.e. to the East of it, a single nave edifice, which is dedicated to the Holy Trinity, was built in 1833 with bells above the Western entrance.
123271 Preza Fortress Place The Preza Fortress was probably built in the early 15th century or around 1500. Who exactly founded the Preza fortress was debated, suggestions were the Ottoman, the Albanian noble Family of Topia or Skanderbeg. The fortress was expanded by an mosque in the 16th century.
117859 Pridraga, Church of St. Archangel Michael Place The Church of St. Archangel Michael was most probably built at the beginning of the 9th century or in the year 1000, as some researchers suggest, and is part of a complex of buildings called "Manastirine".

124458 Prizren, Church of the Mother of God of Ljeviša Place The Church of the Mother of God of Ljeviša (Virgin Eleousa) is dedicated to the Dormition of the Mother of God. It is situated in the city of Prizren and was built by King Milutin 1307-1313 on the ground of an earlier three-nave basilica, probably from the 9th or the 10th century (at the latest). Its is said that St. Sava visited Prizern at the beginning of the 13th century, when the first Serbia bishop of the city was ordained. It was the first restoration of the edifice as evidences by the inscriptions on the frescoes in the South aisle dated in 1220. In the 14th century the edifice was remodeled and turned into a building with five domes, three-partite apses which are semicircular on the inside and three-sided on the outside and an exonarthex with two floors and a bell-tower. According to the inscription on the exonarthex we know that the reconstruction of the Church was managed by masters Nikola (architecture) and Michael Astrapas (painting). The Church was fresco-painted in the 13th century and later in the 14th by the hand of Michael Astrapas and his assistants. In 1346, after the proclamation of the Serbian Patriarchate this Church was elevated to the rank of metropolitanate. In the 15th century Prizren was occupied by the Turks. In the 18th century it was turned into a mosque. In 2006 the Church was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as part of an ensemble of medieval monuments in Kosovo.

121497 Skadar Place The town of Skadar was founded in the 4th century BCE. Skodra was in hellenistic times part of a Koinon and also the residence of the last Illyrian king. Under Roman rule Skadar became an oppida and an administrative center for the region. In the 3rd or 4th century and also in the 5th century under Justinian the walls of Skadar were rebuilt. During the medieval age the medieval town separated itself somewhat from the ancient town core, which became the town quarter of Ajasma. In 1040 Skadar became part of the Serbian realm. Manuel I Comnenos integrated Skadar in the year 1160 into the Byzantine Empire and made it the capital of the Thema of Dalmatia. 1184 Skadar became again part of the Serbian Kingdom and in 1215 of the Despotate of Epirus. In 1355 Albanian nobles declared their independence, but fell in 1396 under Venetian sovereignty. The Venetians built in 1416 the three walled defensives around the town and renovated the fortifications between 1461 and 1474. In 1479 Skadar was conquered by the Ottoman. (FŠ LPD., 310; VM Lj.,58; VĐ ŽSN., 31 - civitatem Scodarim; Rosafь grad' rekomyi Skьdrь).
124349 Skadar, Church of St. Nicholas Place The Church of St. Nicholas is situated in Skadar. It was erected by Queen Helen of Anjou in 1280, and a place where she became a nun. Its a three nave basilica with a semicircular apse. For the needs of Orthodox cult the altar space received short bays and was raised one step above the floor of the Church. Also, a semicircular niche was found in the North nave for the needs of the proscomidia. The Church was ruined in the 1960s.
124335 Skadar, Church of St. Stephen Place The Church of St. Stephen is situated in Skadar. It was first mentioned in 1319, therefore researchers believe it was built around 1300.

124353 Skadar, Church of Sts. Sergius and Bacchus Place The Church of Sts. Sergius and Bacchus, a Benedictine Monastery, is situated at the bend of Bojana River, in Skadar. According to the Chronicle of Bar, the Church was the mausoleum of the Vojislavljević dynasty in the 11th century. Two inscriptions in Latin have remained that mention the names of Queen Helen of Anjou dated in 1290 and the other from 1318 which mentions her and her son King Milutin as ktetors (it was probably the time of the renewal of the Church). Its a three nave edifice and each nave ends, in East, with a semicircular apse. The Church was ruined by the Bojana River.
119565 Skadar, Monastery of the Most Pure Mother of God of Krajina Place The so-called Monastery of the Most Pure Mother of God of Krajina („Craini”), with its main church dedicated to the Dormition of the Holy Mother of God, was built near the South-Western shore of Lake Skadar. As most researchers believe its ktetor was Prince Jovan Vladimir (reigned 990-1016), whose remains were transferred here not long after he was murdered in 1016 in Prespa. Next to him his wife Kosara was burried. The church was renewed and enlarged several times, but the original plan is still visible. Its a single nave edifice with semicircular conchae on its Southern, Eastern and Northern sides, making it a trefoil building, similar to the Church of St. John in Zaton on the River Lim, built at the approximately same time, and the Church of St. Panteleimon in Ohrid (the burial Church of St. Kliment), built during the time of Tsar Samuel's domination in the Balkans. The church was renewed at the end of the 14th century, probably at the time when the Metropolitan see of Zeta was transferred. It is believed that Balša III Djurdjević was responsible for its renovation. Today, only fragments of fresco decoration indicate that once the church was embellished. (FŠ LPD., 331 - in ecclesia sancta Mariae, in loco qui dicitur Craini).

7486 Skopje, Upper Town, Monastery of Saint Nicetas Place The Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos mentioned the Monastery of Saint Nikita near Skopje in the years 1299/1300 (πλησίον [τῶν Σκοπίων] εὑρίσ[κετ]αι μοναστή[ριον εἰς ὄνο]μα τιμώμενον τοῦ Ἁγίου μεγαλομάρτ[υ]ρος Νικήτα). In 1299/1300 or 1308 a Serbian version of a charter by Andronikos II Palaiologos - at the instigation of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin - confirmed the donations made by Michael IX (ō priloženi ježe vь Skopi cr(ь)kva S(ve)t(a)go m(u)č(e)nika Nikiti vь metohiju). It could well be that the scribe of the aforesaid Slavonic charter localised the Monastery of Saint Nikita wrongly in the vicinity of the Upper Town of Skopje, while it is to be found to the NW outside of the town, which is indicated by the Byzantine charter. The forged Transcript A of the Collective Charter of Stefan Uroš II Milutin for the Chilandar monastery reports that the deserted Monastery of Saint Nikita was found and re-erected by the Serbian king (I ōbrěte kraljevьstvo mi manastyrь zapustělь vь Skopʼskoi straně Svetago Nikitu ōtьčьstva mojego i napravihь jego). He donated it afterwards to to Tower of Hrusija near the Chilandar monastery (a Svetago Nikitu dahь mojemu pirʼgu sь vʼsěmь jego utʼvrьždenijemь). The Church has an elongated cross-in-square plan, with a dome and interior which is divided into nine bays. The four bays that form a cross are barrel-vaulted. The calotte of the dome (made of brick) rests upon a high octagonal drum. The specific design of the sanctuary, which consists of the eastern arm of the cross, a short narrow bay and a semicircular apse, was imitated in Serbian fourteenth-century architecture, especially in Churches founded by noblemen. The façades were built in alternating layers of bricks and ashlars. Also, the façade walls of the church are decorated with blind arches that rest on lesenes. As supposed by researchers the Church was built by Byzantine master builders (influence came from the nearby Thessaloniki like the Church of Saint Panteleimon, the small Church of the Holy Saviour and the Church of the Panagia Elassona Olympiotissa in Elassona). The building was fresco decorated in the 14th century (after 1321) by Michael Astrapas, the famous Thessalonian painter of the Palaiologan era, and his associates . The Church had a parakklesion once situated in the Eastern section of the South wall and was dedicated to St. John the Baptist, and was fresco painted in the 16th century. It was a single nave edifice with the width greater than the length and it was demolished in 1928.
119234 Slatina Place The Village of Slatina was mentioned in the year 1314 (Sp. IV 4 - ōt Strašiv'ca u slatinu, ōt slatine u r'tь i u gomylu konь r'ta).

117875 Solin, Church at Gradina Place The Church at Gradina was built in the 6th century and renovated in the 9th and 11th centuries. It was used under Ottoman rule, but in the 16th century the church was converted into a mosque.
117951 Solin, Church of St. Mary Place The Church of St. Mary in situated in Solin (in the so-called White Croatia or Great Croatia) and was built before the year 976, when Queen Helen of Zadar (Helen the Glorious or Jelena Zadarska), the wife of King Michael Krešimir II and the ktetor of this Church, died. The Church was part of the Royal Mausoleum complex along with the Church of St. Stephen, making them double-churches (basilica geminatae) typical for the Benedictines (the bigger one was usually dedicated to St. Mary, while the smaller one to a saint). It was a three nave edifice, with an atrium and a narthex. It probably served as a coronation Church and a mausoleum. since a gravestone with a name of the Queen was found in the Church, and later the remains of the sarcophagus in the narthex. The church was damaged in the first Ottoman raids in the 16th century and later a new building was erected.
117936 Solin, Church of St. Stephen Place The Church of Sveti Stephen was built at the same time as the Church of St. Mary, which lies just a few metres to the North. Its construction is attributed to Queen Helen of Zadar (Jelena), the wife of King Michael Krešimir II, who was buried in the Church of St. Mary in 976. It is unclear, if the Church was newly erected or just repaired on behalf of the Queen. Another theory is that the Church of St. Mary had a double dedication to the Mother of God and Saint Stephen. It's a three nave edifice with westwerk at both ends of the narthex and a rectangular apse.
118232 Solin, Church of Sts. Peter and Moses Place The Church of Sts. Peter and Moses was built shortly before 1070. It is recorded as St. Peter in 1070 and 1076, and as St. Moses in 1078 and 1158. The church was repaired in the 12th century, probably because it was damaged in the Croatian interregnum. It is again mentioned in 1571 and was finally demolished in 1700, when it served as a quarry. Its a three-nave and three apse edifice. It has a narthex on the Western side and a bell-tower on the South (that has remained today only partially).
123951 Sopot Fortress Place The Sopot Fortress was probably built at the beginning of the 13th century. In 1258 Sopot became a part of Manfred of Hohenstaufen's realm and was conquered by Nikephoros I of Epirus in 1278 but ceded to the Anjou in 1279. During the Rebellion of the Albanians in 1336 Sopot supportet the Byzantine emperor Andronikos III. It was again mentioned in 1431-1432 in the Ottoman Defter.
119678 Sopoćani Monastery, Church of Holy Trinity Place The Sopoćani Monastery is situated near the source of Raška River, in the Ras region, in the vicinity of the city Novi Pazar. The Church was built by King Stefan Uroš I (son of Stefan the First-Crowned) around 1260. (PJŠ Pam., 70 - sьzida že crьkovь Sopokjani). The exonarthex and a bell tower were added later, in the first half of the 14th century (resembling the Žiča Monastery). The Church is a grave site of foyal family members: King's mother Anna Dandolo, Stefan the First Crowned, Grand Duke Djordje and King Uroš I. Its a single nave edifice with three bays and a dome. It has a three-partite semicircular apse and a narthex. On the sides of the narthex are separate chambers. On the outside, the edifice resembles a three-nave basilica (all side rooms, next to the altar, choirs and chapels are placed under one, single-pitched roof), which is also the element that distinguishes this building from the others of the Raška style group. Windows and portals were done by masters from the coastal area, in the Romanesque style. The entire Church is fresco painted around 1270. After being damaged, the Church was reconstructed in the 15th century (at the time some alterations were made). After the Ottoman rule, in the 20th century, this site was reconstructed and recovered.

It is a single nave edifice with an apse and a bell-tower, which was added at a later date. The church has two altars: one Orthodox in the Western bay and one Catholic next to the Southern wall. Around the church is a common cemetery for both denominations. The church was renewed in 2005.
118283 Split Place Split, in Italian Spalato, is a seaport, resort, and chief city of Dalmatia in Southern Croatia. It is situated on a peninsula in the Adriatic Sea with a deep, sheltered harbour on the South side. The city is best known for the ruins of the Palace of Diocletian (built 295–305 AD). Collectively with the historic royal residences, fortifications, and churches in the city, the palace was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979. From 812 Split developed as a major Byzantine city. In 1105, after brief incursions by Venice (998) and Croatia (1069), the city acknowledged the nominal suzerainty of Hungary-Croatia and fought sporadically with its rival Trogir. From 1420 to 1797 it was held by Venice. The Austrians ruled from 1797 to 1918 with a brief French interregnum in 1808-13.
118130 Split, Church of Saint Euphemia Place The Church of St. Euphemia was built shortly before the year 1069 and was part of a monastery complex of the Order of Saint Benedict. The church was originally dedicated to Saint Benedict. Both church and monastery were founded by Archbishop Lovro (reigned 1060-1099). The monastery was closed by the French in the year 1806 and turned into a military hospital by the Austrian Army. The whole complex fell victim to a fire in 1877. It was a three nave building with a dome, and three semicircular apses on the Eastern side.
118070 Split, Church of Saint Stephen Place The Church of St. Stephen was built before 1020. It was redecorated around 1100. The Church belonged to the Monastery of St. Stephen. The Monastery and its Church were already in ruins in the year 1699.
118174 Split, Church of St. Martin Place The Church of St. Martin is inserted into the corridor above the Porta Aurea of Diocletian's Palace in Split and is preserved until today. Above the outer entrance of the North Gate, which later became known as the Golden Gate, is a well-preserved adapted and narrow church of St. Martin. The space inside the Church was rearranged several times, and the oldest probably belongs to the early Christian era. The pre-Romanesque phase, probably as early as the 9th century, includes a barrel vault, an altar in the apse with a carved cross of early Christian markings and small transepts (perforated stone slabs) placed in the middle of large walled antique openings on the south wall. The later pre-Romanesque phase from the 11th century belongs to the altar partition, the only one which is entirely preserved in Dalmatia. Remains of the bell-tower have remained on its Western side. From the contents of the inscription, which is carved along the upper part of the fence, it is learned that the Church contains objects of worship (patrocinia) in honor of St. Martin, the Mother of God and Pope St. Gregory, which means that the Church is under their protection. The Church has another inscription on the lintel, written in a rustic way, mentioning a priest Dominic, who is responsible for the construction work in the Church (for the construction of partition walls and doors).
118138 Split, Church of St. Nicholas Place The Church of St. Nicholas was built in the second half of the 11th century on behalf of a certain "famous John" and his wife Ticha. The Church was refurbished in the 12th century and rebuilt in 1667, party demolished in 1860 and restored in 1949. Its an edifice with the ground plan of single nave with transept, a dome, rectangular apse, bell tower on the Southern side and on the lintel is a Latin inscription with the name of the donor.
117846 Split, Church of the Holy Trinity Place The Church of the Holy Trinity was probably built in the 9th century. It was rebuilt after its dome collapsed during the Pre-Romanesque era and was then rededicated. Based on an inscription, which was found in the older parts of the Church, it is supposed that the church was first dedicated to the Saint Archangel Michael. Its an edifice with a sex leaf ground plan and a dome. Each apse has three shallow niches except the Western one which has a door and two niches. The presbyterian part includes three eastern apses with windows in the central niche.
118235 Split, Gospa od Zvonika Place The Chapel called Gospa od Zvonika was probably built in the second half of the 11th century. It was integrated into a corridor above the Western gate of Diocletian's Palace in Split.
132221 Sporii Place The toponym "Sporii" appears in Serbian medieval sources of the 13th century and designates a mountain range to the North of Nikšić. According to Aleksandar Loma, it might be connected to the ethnic denomination "Bosporani", as attested in the work of Procopius of Caesarea.
121537 Spuž Place (MMS., 483 - podь Splьžemь u kalьcь).
122136 Stabna Fortress Place The Stabna fortress was mentioned in the 1444 charter of Duke Stjepan.
122138 Stari Ulcinj Place The fortified settlement of Stari Ulcinj on the Island of Stari Ulcinj was mentioned in 1376 as "in mari Dulcinii veteris" and later in the 17th century on Venetian maps as Dolcigno Vecchio. Stari Ulcinj was propably fortified during the Medieval period, although it was already settled earlier.
123273 Stelush Fortress Place The Stelush Fortress was probably built in the 15th century on ancient fundaments. The fortress was built and used by Skanderbeg in his wars against the Ottomans.
121559 Stijena Place (VĐ Iz Ist., 198 - selo Stijena).
131567 Stolac, Donje Selo, Necropolis with Three Tombstones Place There is a necropolis with three stećak-type tombstones on the Donje Selo site near the village Stolac.
131569 Stolac, Grčko groblje, Necropolis with 30 Tombstones Place On a hill in the area of Valje, on the site of the Greek cemetery (Grčko groblje), there is a necropolis with 30 stećak-type tombstones.
121561 Stoliv Place (AM KS., I, 13 (26-27) - vinea mea de Staliuo).
118356 Ston, Church of St. John (St. Ivan) Place The Church of St. John (some researchers point to Saint John the Baptist while others indicate St. John the Evangelist) was built on the foundations of an Ealry Christian building probably from the 6th century. The Church is a single nave edifice with an elongated rectangular ground plan with a wide semicircular apse on the East side. The interior of the side walls is divided by four lesenes, which are, interconnected and formed, on each wall, five niches vaulted with a semicircular lintel.
118363 Ston, Church of St. Martin Place The Church of St. Martin is located on the northern slope of the hill Humac and today lies in ruins. Most researchers agree that it was probably built in the beginning of the 12th century, even though earlier date is also possible. Its a single nave building divided with two lesenes into three bays. It has a semicircular apse on the inside and a rectangular on the outside. Today only Southern wall remains. Restoration works on the church, with a minor archaeological intervention, were undertaken in 1964 - 1965 by the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments from Dubrovnik.
117946 Ston, Church of St. Michael Place The Church of Saint Michael the Archangel in Ston was probably erected by Prince Stefan Vojislav, the archont of the Serbs and a Terbounian Serb (reigned ca. 1037-1050), in the first half of the 11th century. The church is situated on top of the hill named Gradac and it might have served as a palace church. Its a rectangular, single-nave building, which is divided with composite pilasters into three bays (the middle one has a blind dome, while Eastern and Western have groin vaults) and a bell-tower situated on its Western side. The altar apse is semicircular inside and rectangular on the outside. The exterior is decorated with lesenes and niches, while door frames and stone window have low-relief decoration. Fresco decoration has been severely damaged but we can still recognize its iconographical programme. Certainly the most significant is the fresco decoration of the ktetor who is holding a model of the church and along with Latin inscriptions we can conclude that the paintings are of Western pre-Romanesque influence finished probably prior to 1050.
118366 Ston, Church of St. Peter Place The ruined Church of Sveti Petar in Ston was first built in late antiquity, probably in the 6th century (remains are still visible on the Southern part of the Church). It was later renewed and by the end of 10th century, on the Northern part of the Church, a sanctuary was added with three aisles and dome over its central part (an adaptation made after the mass Christianization).
121650 Ston, Church of St. Stephen (Sv. Stjepan) Place The Church of St. Stephen is situated East of Gorica (between Lužine and Gorica). It was built on the remains of a Late Antique building from the 6th century, probably between the 10th and 11th century. Being on a wetland area archaeological research has been hampered and today only the grounds remain. It is a single nave edifice with a semicircular apse on its Eastern end. A sintronon from the first phase of the building has remained. The early medieval church was built in the sanctuary of the early Christian basilica, and the remains of its North and West walls have been preserved. On its Northern wall remains of lesenes can still be seen and they indicate that the building was divided into three bays.
118058 Ston, Church of the Virgin of Lužine Place The Church of the Virgin of Lužine (Monastery of the Holy Mother of God) was built in the 10th or the 11th century in the Ston Polje field, close to the sea. It underwent several renovations in the 13th and 16th centuries which makes it difficult to determine its former appearance. The Church is a single-nave edifice with a semicircular apse, and a tower on its Western end (built during later renovations). It is also probable that this Church Sava Nemanjić designated as the seat of the bishopric in Hum, in 1220. The Church was repaired and restored after an earthquake in 1667 and later again in 1891. Today it is a Roman Catholic Church.
120368 Ston, St. Mary Magdalene Place The Church of St. Mary Magdalene is situated on the archaeological site Gorica, in Ston (important center and an episcopal seat in the principality of Zachloumoi). It was a single-nave late antique basilica that was adapted into a three-nave basilica in the second half of the 9th century, with a bell tower on its Western side. It probably housed the Ston bishops cathedra. In the Church interior the remains of fresco decoration and a late antique sarcophagus have been found (today kept in Dubrovnik).
117924 Straževnik, Island of Brač, Church of Saint George Place The Church of St. George is mentioned in a document from the year 1111 and was probably built around 1100.

119614 Studenica Monastery, Church of Joachim and Anne (King's Church) Place The Church of Sts Joachim and Anna, later renamed King's Church, is situated in the Studenica Monastery (near the cities of Kraljevo and Vrnjačka Banja) next to the monastery's main Church. It was built in 1313 or 1314 by King Milutin (ZN 46, Danilo 138) as indicated in the inscription on the façade below the roof cornice. The Church is constructed as a building of a reduced cruciform ground plan with a dome. The Church was fresco decorated by Michael Astrapas, one of the leading painters of the epoch, in the spirit of Byzantine classicism of the Palaiologan era. It was fitted with white marble furnishings and reliefs.
119648 Studenica Monastery, Church of St. Nicholas Place The Church of St. Nicholas is in the Studenica Monastery, near Kraljevo and Vrnjačka Banja. It was built at the end of the 12th century (Gsnd XIV 215), probably simultaneously with the Church of the Mother of God or King Radoslav's narthex at the latest. The ground plan shows a single-nave edifice and a semicircular apse. It was built with stone and tufa. Some fragments of fresco paintings have survived and are dated in around the 1230s (until the middle of the 13th century the latest). It bears certain similarities with frescoes of the Church of the Virgin Ljeviška in Prizren.
119688 Studenica Monastery, Church of the Mother of God Place The Church of the Mother of God in the Studenica Monastery is situated 39km South-West of the city of Kraljevo. It was built between 1183 and 1196, by Stefan Nemanja (Spisi sv. Save 153; Kralj Stefan 9; Domentijan 24) (ZSp. 569 V - I u Rasinyi methohь Popovacь, crьkva hramь Vavědenïe prěsvetïe Bogorodica i zaselakï, i selo Vožetinь, selo Rakla i zaseljakь, i selo Pohovacь, i selo Vělika Vruševïca i Podrumi, i povele da prinose vyno trevy rady monastiru). The relics of Stefan Nemanja were brought to Studenica (from Chilandar) making this place the political, cultural and spiritual center of the country. Around his tomb are buried - his wife Ana (nun Anastasija), his son Stefan the First-Crowned, Grand Prince Vukan, Nemanja's grandson Stefan (son of King Uroš I) and King Radoslav with his wife. Therefore Studenica became known as Lavra of St. Simeon the Myrrh-streaming (Myroblytos). For this reason the Church became the model to emulate in the construction and fresco painting of Serbian Churches. Its a single nave edifice with a dome and a three-part altar space, side vestibules and a narthex. The vestibules had a cult purpose, as evidenced by niches in their Eastern walls. The façade of the Church of the Mother of God is made in accordance with the traditions of Romanesque art (the masons came from the coastal region, perhaps Kotor). Some typically Byzantine details, such as the semicircular arch on the sides of the tambour of the dome and the disposition of the windows on it, are harmoniously integrated into the Western concept of the exterior of the walls. The most impressive Romanesque features of the monastery catholicon are the friezes of arcades on the upper edges of the walls and the shapes of window openings and portals, i.e. their sculptural decoration. Western and Southern entrance door, along with a trifora at the altar are most prominent example of rich sculptural decoration of this period in history. Also, the lunette above the Western door is richly decorated with sculptural decoration of the Virgin with Christ and two archangels. An inscription on the tympanum of the West portal is written in Serbian lettering which indicates that artist(s) were probably Serbian. According to the fragmentarily preserved inscription in the tambour of the dome, it is known that the painting of the Church began in 1208/1209. Fresco decoration was thoroughly renovated in 1569 by Longin. Around 1230 Radoslav, son of Stefan the First-Crowned, built an exonarthex with two semicircular chapels on the South and North sides and perhaps a square tower with a chapel on the upper floor of the main entrance of the Monastery.
123774 Suacium Place Accordung to Šufflay, the ruins of the medieval upper town of Suacium lay near the modern day village of Šaš. The town was plundered by the Tartars in 1242 but recovered until it began to decline from 1388 onwards. The town is mentioned in 1470 as "villa de Suazzo" and Giustiniani states in 1553 that the walls, gates and moat were still visible and somehow usable.

122313 Sušćepan, Church of St. Stephen Place The Church of St. Stephen is situated in Sušćepan near Herceg Novi. Based on the preserved capital, it can only be assumed that the pre-Romanesque Church of St. Stephen was built as a three-nave basilica, erected between the 9th and the 11th century. The early medieval church was destroyed by the Ottoman invasion and built anew in the 17th and 20th centuries. The current church is a single nave edifice with a semicircular apse in the East and an entrance in the West. The church has been recently pargetted. It is surrounded by a cemetery.
121384 Svač Place (VĐ ŽSN., 31; AA II, 205 (47) - gradь Svačь; de Suaçio).
124329 Svač, Church of St. John the Baptist Place The remains of the church of St. John the Baptist are situated in Svač near the city of Ulcinj. It was built by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) around 1300. It is a single nave edifice with a semicircular apse. Later, above the apse a tower was built marking this edifice as a Cathedral Church. To this type of building belongs also a Church of St. John in Raša in Albania.
122703 Svač, Early Medieval Church Place The remains of an early medieval church are known only from finds excavated in the Romanesque church of St. John the Baptist. The first edifice was probably built in the 9th century, and the Church of St. John in 1300.
124324 Svač, Franciscan Monastery, Church of St. Mary Place The Franciscan Monastery dedicated to the Holy Mother of God is situated in Svač near the city of Ulcinj and was built by the Serbian Queen Jelena Anžujska (ca. 1230-1314) in 1288. Today in ruins, only the foundations remain, it was a single-nave edifice with a rectangular apse and wooden roof. Fragments of fresco decoration are still visible.
7787 Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska (Monastery Matejče) Place It is assumed that the church building was erected during the reign of the Byzantine Emperor Isaakios I Komnenos (1057-1059). The existence of the Church Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska is beyond doubt attested from the 14th century. The monastery is mentioned in the boundary description of the village of Črěševo, which forms part of a donation by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321) to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje (ta nad Svetuju Bogorodicu črьnogorьsku do Črьnoga kamene). The Vita of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V (reigned 1355-1371), written by the Serbian Patriarch Pajsije, reports that Stefan Uroš V and his mother Jelena completed the Church Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska after the death of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (reigned 1331-1355) (I togda blagočьstivaa carica sь sinomь svoimь sьvršajutь crьkovь ostavšuju ōt blagočьstivago i prěvisokago cara Stefana vь črьnoi gori ne sьvršena i trudomь i podvigomь i pomoštïju prečistye vladičice naše i bogorodice i svoihь praroditeь pomoštïju i zastupljenïemь sьvrьšajutь crkьvь prěslavnuju vь pohvalu i slavu uspenïe prěčityje i prěblagoslovenïe vladičice naše i bogorodice i prisnoděvy marie i do dьnьsь iměnuetse črьnogorska bogorodica). It is unclear, whether the Church of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska is identical with the church in the Skopska Crna Gora above Žegligovo built by Jelena, the mother of Stefan Uroš V, which is attested in the Serbian genealogies (rodoslovi) and annals (letopisi) (u Črьmьnyje Gory, vyše Žegligova; eius vero mater aedificavit Ecclesiam in Nigro Monte, supra Segligovo). The Ottoman Sultan Murad I (reigned 1360-1389) might have passed by the Church Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska on his march against the Serbian Prince Lazar Hrebeljanović (reigned 1373-1389) before the battle on the Kosovo field (Kosovo Polje) in 1389. Evdokija Balšić commissioned the monk Gerasim in the Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska in 1409 to write the manuscript of the Dialogues (paterik) by Saint Gregory the Great (...sia božestvennaja kniga, glagoljemaa dialogь, ispisa se iže vь ōbitěli prěčityje i prěslaьnyje vladyčice naše bogorodice nerukotvorennyje čjudotvorice črьnogorьskye povelěnïem blagověrnyje i blagočьstivyje i hristoljubivyje gospogje despotice kyr Eudokyje, dьšti blagověrnago i hristoljubivago i velikago gospodina Gjurgja Balšikja...). The scribe Vladislav Gramatik resided in the Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska between 1457 and 1497. In 1479 he compiled a liturgical book (panegyrikon) in the Monastery at the foot of the Crna Gora in the region of Žegligovo (monastiri prěsvetyje vladičice naše bogorodice iže vъ podkrilïi Črьnye Gory, vь prědělě Žegligovʼcěm). The scribe Dimitrij Kantakuzin also temporarily resided in the monastery. The scribal notes of both copyists mention the Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska in the year 1469 (vь vьsečьstněmь monastiri prěsvetye bogorodice suštee iže v podkrilïi Črьnye Gory), 1473 (vъ vъsečъstněm monastiri prěsvetye vladičice naše bogorodice i prisnoděvy Marïe, suštee iže v podkrilïi Črъnye Gory), 1479 (vь vьsečьstněm monastiri prěsvetyje vladičice naše bogorodice iže vъ podkrilïi Črьnye Gory, vь prědělě Žegligovʼcěm) and 1480/81 (Vladislavu dïaku ōt Črьnogorskye bogorodice). The Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska is registered as "Holy Mother of God in Kara Donlu" or "Monastery Karadonlu with the second name Holy Mother of God" in the Defter for the Sanjak Köstendil from the years 1570 to 1572. In the 17th century (between 1647 and 1654) the Serbian Patriarch Gavrilo Rajić payed a visit to the Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska (Da se zna kogda pridohь azь arhiepiskopь Gavriilь vъ carьnogorsku bogorodicu). The British traveller Edward Brown saw most probably the Monastery of Sveta Bogorodica Črьnogorska, when he passed through the city of Kumanovo in 1668/69 (near which [scil. Kumanovo] there is still a Greek Monastery, upon the side of the Hills). The Church has a ground plan of an inscribed-cross with five domes, resembling those of Staro Nagoričine and Church of St. Panteleimon in Nerezi (near Skoplje), narthex and a three-partite apse. The central dome has a twelve-sided drum and is set on four massive pillars. The smaller domes, erected in the shape of octagons, are located in the corners of the building - the eastern ones are situated on the prosthesis and the deaconry, and the western ones above the narthex. The narthex is decorated with a modest architectural sculpture. The Church is vaulted with barrel and cruciform arches, placed on the walls, pillars and pilasters in the interior of the building. The façade is decorated with lesenes. This Church is a true representative of the building traditions of the Palaiologan epoch, such as Churches in Arta, Mistra and Thessaloniki. The Church has been fresco painted between 1348 and 1352, representing the largest painted ensemble on the Macedonian territory in the 14th century and the second largest in the Balkans.

117890 Telašćica, Island of Dugi, Church of St. John Place The Church of St. John is situated on the Island of Dugi, in Telašćica. Its a single nave edifice, whose interior is divided into three bays and has a semicircular apse on its Eastern end.

117827 Telašćica, Island of Dugi, Church of St. Victor Place The Church of St. Victor is situated on the Island of Dugi, in Telašćica.

It is very similar to the Church of St. Pelegrin in Savar on the same Island. The ruins of the Church can be found on Citorij Hill.
123958 Tepelena Fortress Place The Tepelena Fortress was byzantine fortress at the crossroad of two important roads through the Vjosa valley and the Drin valley respectively.

121571 Tivat Place (AM KS., I, 54 (37-37 - Vinee vero de THeodo; IS KUK., 20 - Latus Tiueti).
132074 Tivat, Benedictine Monastery of St. Mark Place Pavao Butorac states that there was "for sure" a Benedictine Monastery of St. Mark in Tivat: "Monasterium S. Marci de Pinita, cum eiusdem nominis ecclesia, in situ Pini (Tivat), non longe a litore maris, certo surgebat." (p. 10). He gives no other additional information about the site though as well as no link to the sources.
122416 Tivat, Church of St. Sergius Place The Church of St. Sergius is situated on Djurdjevo brdo in Tivat. It was built in the 16th century on the grounds of probably Pre-Romanesque edifice with an original inscription, from a lintel mentioning Saint Sergius, Saint Nicholas and Saint Demetrius built into its wall. Apart from the fragments, built into today's Church, there are no traces of the original building, therefore its orientation, dimensions or materials, architecture and construction are unknown.

Its a single nave edifice, divided along its length into three parts. with a dome and an apse, also divided into three parts. The dome rises above the squarely designed central bay of the nave. There is a bell tower on the West side of the Church (built probably at the beginning of the 13th century since the building material is slightly different from the rest of the Church), resembling the Church of St. Tryphon in Kotor. The façade is decorated with shallow blind arches. A tomb inside the Church was probably meant to be Nemanja's gravesite.
122935 Toplica, Church of the Mother of God (near Kuršumlija) Place The Church of the Mother of God is situated in Toplica, near Kuršumlija.

Its a single nave triconchos, with an apse (triangular on the outside and semicircular on the inside) on its Eastern end and a narthex with two towers with rectangular ground plans (some researchers indicate that the towers were to mark the Church as a royal endowment, in accordance with the dominant custom of the time in the countries close to Raška, primarily Hungary). The Church was probably built by Constantinopolitan builders (masters). Therefore, some researchers believe that the construction of this and the Church dedicated to St. Nicholas, situated in its close proximity, sparked dispute between Nemanja (who was close to the Byzantine Emperor Manuel I Komnenos) and his older brothers. Today the Church is in ruins.

It is located at the foot of a hill on which are the remains of an early Byzantine fortress. Emperor Constantine Porphyrogenitus mentions Vrgada as the only inhabited island in the Zadar area. Therefore, historians assume that this church was used by a Byzantine military fortress. Its a single nave edifice with a semicircular apse, built probably in the mid-11th century.

118242 Zadar Place Zadar, in Italian Zara, in Latin Jadera, a picturesque historical town in South-Western Croatia, the former capital of Dalmatia. It is located on the end of a low-lying peninsula that is separated by the Zadar Channel from the islands of Ugljan and Pašman. The inlet between the peninsula and the mainland creates a natural deepwater harbour. The old town on the peninsula dates from the 9th century BC, when it was a Liburnian settlement called Jadera. The town became Roman in the 1st century AD. Spared in the Avar and Slavic invasions of Dalmatia (c. 5th–6th century AD), it remained a thriving commercial, cultural, and artistic centre of Byzantine Dalmatia. Between 1045 and 1358 the town was intermittently at war with Venice, and in 1409 it was sold to Venice. It withstood a Turkish attack in 1571, and in the succeeding period Zadar became the most heavily fortified town on the Adriatic until its fortifications were partly demolished in the late 19th century.
117869 Zadar, Church at Kolovare Place The Church at Kolovare was built before 1100 AD and is only known from the model of the city of Zadar from 1560, which is displayed in the Museo Storico Navale in Venice. It was a six leaf edifice, similar to the Church Stomorice. Its exact position is unknown.
117931 Zadar, Church at the City Gate Place The church at the city gate of Zadar was built in Late Antiquity and renovated at some point between the 9th and 11th centuries.
118161 Zadar, Church of Saint Peter the Old Place The Church of St. Peter the Old was built in the 10th or 11th century. It is attached to the apse of the Early Christian Church of St. Andrew. The Church of St. Peter the Old is mentioned in 918 in the testament of Prior Andrew. The building itself is still existing, but seems not to be used as Church anymore. Its a single nave edifice with two aisles - making it unique building and rather hard to be classified. It has three phases of development: the first is dated in the 6th century and its a single nave edifice dedicated to St. Andrew; later a rectangular edifice was added to this building on its Eastern side and its called St. Peter the Old and in the later phase this building has been remodeled as a building two aisles and two apses. Today the entire edifice is called Church of St. Peter the Old.
118171 Zadar, Church of St. Anastasia (Stošija) Place The Church of St. Stošija in Zadar was dedicated to Saint Anastasia in the year 931. It was already in ruins in the year 1675. The church was, together with a Church of St. George, possibly part of the so-called basilicae geminae (i.e. a church composed of a nave and one aisle). Its a three nave basilica, built throughout centuries.
117877 Zadar, Church of St. Donatus Place The Church of St. Donatus was built in the late 8th or early 9th century as part of the Cathedral complex of Zadar at the old Roman forum. Goss argues that this church is maybe one of the first Pre-Romanesque examples in the Dalmatian cities and the Croatian hinterland. The Church of St. Donatus was originally dedicated to the Holy Trinity, but became rededicated to St. Donatus in the 15th century. It is a circular domed edifice with three radially situated apses and an ambulatory, with also circular gallery. The Church bears slight resemblance to Charlemagne's court chapel in Aachen and the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna.
118122 Zadar, Church of St. Lawrence Place The Church of St. Lawrence is situated in Zadar and was possibly built in the 10th or 11th century. It underwent some renovations at the end of the 11th or beginning of the 12th century. The Church was again refurbished in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. The Church is longitudinal in shape and has four pillars, so it seems that it has three naves. But the side naves are so narrow that they can hardly be passed through, and each nave is vaulted with calottes (on trumpets). Therefore, most researchers consider this to be a single nave Church with a dome. Church was fresco decorated, but none of it is preserved. Rich sculptural decoration is mostly in Zadar Archaeological Museum.
123213 Zadar, Church of St. Mary Place The Church of St. Mary (Birth of the Virgin) is situated in Zadar and was built in the 11th century. In 1091 was refurbished and turned into a three nave edifice. Later, in the 16th century it got its present appearance.
118135 Zadar, Church of St. Nediljica (St. John the Baptist) Place The Church of Sveta Nediljica (former dedication was to St. John the Baptist) is situated in Zadar and was built in the second half of the 11th century. The church was destroyed in the year 1891. It was a three nave edifice and had a tri partite apse (the middle one was rectangular while the other two, on both sides, were semicircular on the inside. All were rectangular on the outside). Next to the church, on the South side, there is a square bell tower with lesenes and had a door which connected it to the Church. On the North side of the Church a sacristy was added, which also had a door which connected it to the Church. A crypt was beneath the Church. Researchers believe that this Church was built on the remains of the previous one, probably from Early Christian period.
123201 Zadar, Church of St. Stošija in Puntamiki Place The Church of St. Stošija is situated in Puntamika, in Zadar. It was probably built in the 9th century and was excavated in 1952.. Its a single nave edifice, built with the adaptation of the former ancient cistern, which, as we know, is not an isolated case because the Churches of St. John and Sv. Theodore in Bol on Brač were also erected that way. A trapezoidal apse was added to the cistern, and the space between the old and new walls was filled with rubble. Apart from the spacious entrance, the only opening in the Church was a transept in the middle of the apse, traces of which were found during the excavation.
117817 Zadar, Church of St. Vitus Place The Church of St. Vitus in Zadar was erected in the 10th or the 11th century, while the city was under the supreme rule of the Byzantine Empire. It was demolished in 1877, but the descriptions of the exterior of the building, made by the Zadar painter Ivan Smirić, have been preserved. It was an edifice in the form of a free cross with a dome, very similar to the Church of the Holy Cross in Nino.
117864 Zadar, Stomorica Church (S. Maria de Pusterla) Place The Stomorica Church in the city of Zadar was most probably built in the 11th century. Goss argues for this date based on architectural grounds, i.e. the combination of the church and a bell tower. In Croatian coastal cities bell towers are not to be found before the 11th century. The church came out of use before the year 1560, when it was demolished. It is not shown in the model of Zadar of the same year, which is kept in the Museo Storico Navale in Venice. The Stomorica Church was discovered in the year 1880 and excavated between 1956 and 1967. Its a six leaf Church (or as some researchers indicate - a circular ground plan with five semicircular apses) with a dome, an atrium and a bell tower on its Western side. Remains of fresco paintings were found.

119610 Zaton, Church of St. John Place The Church of St. John in Zaton on the River Lim near Bijelo Polje was mentioned in (Gsnd XI 121). It is a trefoil church built in the 9th or the 10th century and was destroyed in the 14th and again in the 20th century. It was rebuilt in the 21st century. The similarity with the Church of St. Panteleimon in Ohrid indicates that it was probably erected during the reign of Tsar Samuel. The ground plan indicates a single nave church with square base and three conchae on its Eastern, Northern and Southern sides. Fragments of fresco decoration and a stone stab floor were found. Researchers believe that the church was fresco decorated in the time of Prince Miroslav (reigned 1162-1190). Today the church has been renewed.
120759 Zavala Place (BĐ Iz Ist., 198 - selo Zavala)
120363 Zavala, St. Peter Place The Church of St. Peter in Zavala is situated on the western rim of the Popovo Polje field, 50km to the west of Trebinje. It was first mentioned in written sources in the 16th century. The original appearance of the church of St. Peter in Zavala is interpreted in two ways: as an example of a building with four pillars, like the church of St. Mikula in Split (Tihić / Basler) or as a single-nave building (V. Jovanović). The Church is known for its sculptural decoration dated in the 9th and the 10th century, however fragments of the altar screen undoubtedly point to the conclusion that the church of St. Petra in Zavala was built probably in the 11th century. Researchers believe that sculptural decoration belonged to the original church (which indicates that the remains of today's Church are of much later date) or they were transferred from the church whose remains were found beneath the katholikon of the nearby Zavala monastery. Remains of alter screens with motifs of Eucharist, ambons and tombstones are kept at the Hercegovina Museum in Trebinje. Most fragments have different geometrical ornaments and images of birds that symbolize the Eucharist.

It became episcopal Church in the 14th century, and later turned into a metropolitanate. During Ottoman occupation the Church was turned into a mosque. Today, on its place, a new Church, dedicated to Christ, was built. The first written testimonies of the Church are found in the Studenica typicon (1207–1215), and later in the Charter of the Žiča Monastery. It was a single nave edifice with a dome, tripartite apse and two bell towers on the Western side. The present appearance is the result of some adaptations, especially those into a mosque.

Peter and Paul in Lim (ZSp 594 III - Selo Lěšьnica sь vsěmi medami, a zaselije mu Čelьča, a meda Čelьčy u Člověču Glavu, kako je otь prěde bylo).

119608 Žiča Monastery, Church of the Ascension of Jesus Christ Place The Church of the Ascension of Jesus Christ, in the Žiča Monastry, is situated 32km from Vrnjačka Banja and near the city of Kraljevo. It was built by Stefan the First-Crowned and his brother St. Sava in 1207 and was finished of May 20th 1221, on the Ascension Day when the Great Council was held (Teodosije 139-41). It was the seat of Archbishopric (in 1219) and a place of coronation of Serbian kings (after Stefan received the royal wreath from Pope Honorius III in 1217 and was coronated in Žiča). It is also a resting place of the First-Crowned Serbian king. The ground plan of the Church follows a pattern formed previously in the Church of the Virgin Mary, in the Studenica monastery, with some differences visible at the altar space, making it a model of all future buildings of the 13th century, of the so-called Raska monumental architecture. The Church was built in several stages. First, a single nave edifice was erected, with three bays and a narthex with parekklesion on both of its sides, semicircular apse and a dome. The present western section was separated by a narthex wall until the end of the 13th century, when the wall was removed and the narthex was joined to the nave in a single space. The lateral arms of the transept were erected next to the central bay. After 1220 (but prior to the Great Council in 1221) in the altar the prothesis and the diaconicon were added. By 1230 a spacious exonarthex with a bell-tower was built on the Western side, which has on the upper floor a katechoumemion and on the upper floor of the tower a parakklesion. Another special recognizable feature of this Church is its façade, which is painted in red. It is believed that the builders came both from Byzantium and the Adriatic. The Church was fresco painted by artists from the Byzantium. There are two layers of frescoes in the interior: the older one, created around 1220, which belongs to the so-called Golden age of Serbian painting and younger, from the beginning of the 14th century, which belongs to the painting from the time of King Milutin, created under the influence of the so-called Palaiologan renaissance style.
119674 Žiča, Church of St. Peter and Paul Place The Church of St. Peter and Paul was built in the 13th century (Gsnd XIV).
121812 Žrnovo (Island of Korčula), Church of St. Vitus Place The Church of St. Vitus is situated at the cemetery of Žrnovo near Korčula. The edifice is to this day unknown since it is not preserved. A fragment decorated with a plait which is today built into the morgue of the local cemetery, proves that there was a pre-Romanesque Church dedicated to the saint, otherwise significant for the early medieval period. Judging by the style of decoration of the fragment the Church appears to be built in the 11th century. In the 13th century a Romanesque Church dedicated to the same saint was built on the site.
