Culture and history[eedit | eedit soorce]

Peć is first mentioned in 1302, as a seat o the Serbie Patriarchy. The Patriairchate o Peć consists of a group of monasteries and has been the seat of the Serb Archbishops an Patriarchs for about 200 years since its foundation. It is famous for the Patriarchate of Peć Church, the official residence of the Patriarchs of the Serb Orthodox Church. The Patriarchy was restored by the Muslim Serb Mehmed Paša Sokolović from eastern Bosnia, who was the Ottoman Vizier. However the Patriarchs do not actually reside here for many years, they reside in Belgrade.

The frescoes from the church of St. Apostles, dating from the thirteenth century, rank among the most remarkable medieval Serbian paintings. Over the centuries, churches and other buildings of the Peć Patriarchy have been destroyed and reconstructed several times. Today's appearance dates back to 1931-1932. The Visoki Dečani Monastery is one of the most grandiose monuments of the Serb medieval culture. It is the endowment of King Stefan Dečanski, built from 1327 to 1335.
