North Courtyard, Backovo Monastery

Highly recommended
On entering this vast rectangular paved courtyard surrounded by countless galleries of monks' cells, one cannot fail to be charmed by the harmonious marriage of architecture with the wooded mountain backdrop visible on all sides. An age-old cypress and fruit tree add to the air of serenity, while the flower-planted borders bring a touch of gaiety in spring and summer.
