The Mileševo eparchy and the municipality of Priboj will start construction
of a four-star hotel in the vicinity of St. Nikola monastery from the 12th
century in spa resort Pribojska Banja in few months. Construction of a trade
center with 10 outlets, large atrium and spacious parking lot next to the hotel
is also in the pipeline. As Lazar Rvović, the Mayor of Priboj, explained for
eKapija, the whole complex will occupy the area of about 6 ha, and up to 4m EUR
will be invested in its construction.
- The hotel will have ground floor and three floors. There will be 150 beds
in it. Construction of the trade center commenced about 20 days ago and,
according to the project elaborated by "MMG Company", each of 10
outlets will be at 40 square meters – Rvović explains.
St. Nikola monastery is 7 km away from the old town, that is, 5 km away from
the new center of Priboj. According to the project that is currently being elaborated
by CIP, the existing junction in Pribojska Banja will be relocated because the
aim is that the new complex and the monastery be separated from the
St. Nikola monastery
Let us remind that the eparchy allotted the church property at nearly 4 ha
in the attractive location in Kaluđersko field, on the right bank of the Lim,
in the vicinity of the new bridge in Priboj, to the municipality. In return,
the municipality participates in construction of the complex in the yard of St.
Nikola monastery. As bishop Filater explained earlier, such agreement has resulted
from the fact that the eparchy has no money to finance construction of new
lodgings, now hotel, in the location between the current lodgings and Rehabilitation
Center in the spa resort.
Another new thing in the municipal tourism offer will be Pribojska Banja-Uvac
monastery- Zlatibor road, which will shorten the road between the spa resort and
Zlatibor mountain by about 30 km. That project, the dossier for which is being
prepared by CIP, is the joint investment of municipalities of Čajetina and
- Municipality of Čajetina is financing the works on the road between
Zlatibor mountain and Uvac monastery, while Priboj provides funds for the
remaining 12 kilometers of road, and we intend to the finish realization of the
project this year. Once everything is done, the length of the road between
Pribojska Banja and the center of Zlatibor will be 21 km – said eKapija’s
