Monastery Kom - Podgorica (Skadar Lake)

Monastery Kom Montenegro

Monastery Kom - beautiful and relatively unapproachable


The monastery Kom with the church of St. Dormitionof Holy Mother of God is located in Northwest part of Skadar Lake. The monastery Kom is relatively unapproachable monastery. It is located as we have said on the hill and is surrounded by protective wall with two gates. It has a stone tower and a belfry.
The monastery is the legacy of Duradj and Ljes Crnojevic and was built around 1427. In this monastery Petar II Petrovic Njegos, the greatest Montenegrin ruler and poet, became a priest.

We can divide the monastery complex into the church with the porch, which is inserted in the east, and which is separated from the rest of the monastery. The second part makes the sleeping quarters which have been raised in the west side of the island and those guest sleeping quarters lie onto the free side of the kitchen.
