Prizren Expedition 2019
The Theotokos of Ljevis, Prizren
For over two decades, BLAGO Fund has worked on recording, archiving, presenting and preserving the Serbian artistic, cultural and spiritual heritage in a systematic and professional manner, by using advanced photography and information technologies. In June of 2019, BLAGO went again to Kosovo and Metohija. This time our destination was the city of Prizren with its churches: “The Theotokos of Ljevis” (endowment of King Milutin), churches of Holy Salvation (endowment of Mladen Vladojevic) and St. Nicholas (endowment of Dragoslav Tutic), and the church of St. George (endowment of family Runovic).
As we were unable to rent a van (no rental agencies allowed their vehicles to cross into Kosovo), our personnel and equipment were somewhat limited to two passenger cars. One of them was provided by our sponsor in Serbia, Informatika from Belgrade.
