The Monastery is secluded in a gorge of a creek running into river Dulenka some 16 km south of Kragujevac.on the old road to Jagodina, turning right at the pointer). It is a part of "Trilogy" along with two more late medieval monasteries nearby Sarinac and Denkovac. Raletinac is a female monastery. Due to a Turkish looting the buildings are from later period. Although you will be left without sights of astonishing, (but rather simple) architecture you will enjoy a peaceful and very friendly environment. The beautiful natural surrounding is even more improved by vivid colors of many flowers grown by the nuns in the yard, next to a shimmering water from the spring running into the creek. Do come in springtime. The meal you might get to share with them is vegetarian. Please obey simple rules, dress properly while entering the compound (no shorts, no mini skirts), go to a church first, light a candle - upper shelve for your closest, lower for a deceased). Usually you will see civilians, very often these are a local voluntaries, helping in running such a big compound in simple works...
