Ostrog Monastery in Montenegro

Ostrog Monastery
Most famous chancel in Balkan

This is postmarked in 2009 with a Montenegro 'art' stamp.

The sender writes:
 'This is a view of Ostrog Monastery, a monastery of the Orthodox Christian Church built in the 17th century.  It is placed against an almost vertical background high in the mountains and it's one of the most frequently visited in southeastern Europe.'
