Medieval Monuments in Kosovo

Medieval Monuments in Kosovo

Medieval Monuments in Kosovo (Serbian: Средњовековни споменици на Косову и Метохији / Srednjovekovni spomenici nа Kosovu i Metohiji) is a World Heritage Site consisting of four Serbian Orthodox Christian churches and monasteries which represent the fusion of the eastern Orthodox Byzantine and the western Romanesque ecclesiastical architecture to form the Palaiologian Renaissance style. The sites are located in Kosovo, which Serbia considers to be its southern province, although it unilaterally declared independence in 2008.

In 2004, UNESCO recognized the Dečani Monastery for its outstanding universal value. Two years later, the site of patrimony was extended as a serial nomination, to include three other religious monuments.

Hence, the properly Medieval Monuments in Kosovo now consists of:

Dečani Monastery
Patriarchate of Peć Monastery
Our Lady of Ljeviš
Gračanica Monastery
In 2006 the property was inscribed on the List of World Heritage in Danger due to difficulties in its management and conservation stemming from the region’s political instability.
