CHURCHES

Erected in the 12th century with two bell towers, the Church of Gradac Virgin is the endowment of prince Stacimir, great Serbian ruler Stefan Nemanja’s brother. It was also adorned by a built-in minaret at a certain point. The church is restored in the 19th century according to the Serbian medieval Raška style. It is situated next to the Čačak high school in the city center.

This is where two old bells were found buried in the ground. One was inscribed with the name of the person who donated them, while the other said that these bells were given to this church in 1454. These are among the oldest bells in Serbia.
