SAINT GEORGE’S CHURCH, in Rudnik near Srbica

The 14th century Church of St George, in Rudnik near Srbica, was restored in the 16th century during the reign of Patriarch Makarije Sokolovic. Frescoes date from the same period. East of the church is a centennial mulberry-tree, planted by St. Sava. The seeds were brought from the Sion.

In mid-August 1999 the church was vandalized and burned inside. The stone vault of the roof and the south-east part of the altar were destroyed by explosive. The belfry was set on fire. These acts of vandalism took place after the arrival of the French KFOR troops.
