FRESCOES OF BOGORODICA LJEVISKA
(Lyevishka)


Bogorodica Ljeviska Cathedral is the main official diocesan church of Prizren Orthodox Serb Bishops and is considered by Orthodox Serbs as a pride of the royal city of Prizren. After the war in Kosovo 1998-1999 the Cathedral remains locked under the protection of German troops. Kosovo Albanians have made many attepts to desecrate this holy place and on one occasion it was only thanks to German troops that a total destruction of this medieval cathedral by explosives was prevented. With its sublime architecture and fresco art it remains a living witness of the centuries old Serb Christian Orthodox presence in the city of Prizren.
