Koroglaš monastery

Location: the village of Miloševo, Negotin
The Timok Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church

Koroglaš monastery is located in the immediate vicinity of Negotin, near the village of Miloševo. There are no reliable data who built it and when, but it is assumed to have been built by King Milutin in early 14th century. Folk tradition says that Kraljević Marko, wounded, on his devoted horse Šarac, swam across the Danube from Wallachia after the battle of Rovine; after he died, they buried him in the monastery. For the salvation of his soul a monastery was built there. The monastery had been painted, but only fragments of frescoes were preserved. Near the church there is a medieval necropolis which has been explored only partially.
