In Zdrebaonik since 1856 the relics of Sveti Arsenije Sremac (St. Arsenije from Srem) are kept, who was the Serbian archbishop. Zdrebaonik is a great meeting place and at the same time a parish church.

The renewal of the monastery begun on 1994, and what is really important to point out is that for a long time there is an idea of connecting monasteries of Ostrog and Zdrebaonik with a direct road, and those works have begun. Its termination is expected to happen soon.
