At a few kilometers from Budva near St. Stefan, in the Paštrovići Woods, hidden from passers-by, we come to one of the most beautiful monasteries in Montenegro. It is Rustovo Monastery, the female monastery.
The monastery complex dates back to the ninth century, which was renovated in 2004. The church relics and two miraculous icons of the Mother of God are kept safe here.
Perhaps the most significant feature of this monastery is a handmade activities by the monastic sisterhood in the monastery complex. In silence and constant prayers, the nuns make different medicinal products from collected mountain herbs, honey, olive oil according to the old recipes. Life in the monastery has a special rhythm. You will feel it while breathing, impressed by nature, delighted by calming energy that radiates from this temple and you may ask the modest sisters whatever you might be interested in – they will be pleased to answer.
