History of the Trnava Monastery
It is believed that the monastery was built in the 13th century, during the reign of the Nemanjic dynasty. Serbian King Stefan Uroc I is mentioned as the founder of the monastery. In the Middle Ages, there was a temple at this location, founded by the Nemanjics. The Trnava monastery was later built on its foundations. The first renovation of the temple was done in 1554. Later, in the restoration works that began in 1837, conservation works were active. These works partially revealed the remains of old frescos. Today, Trnava is a nunnery and there is a sewing workshop in which the nuns of the monastery make mantles for priests and monks.
