Refectory, Backovo Monastery

Recommended
Unfortunately, this refectory with its superb marble table is often closed. It has magnificent frescoes painted in 1643: the Tree of Jesse (on the vaulting), Greek philosophers wearing crowns, the Last Judgement, the Council of Nicaea. A veritable gallery in its own right!
