The Church of St Nicholas stands in Stimlje, 29 km south-west of Pristina, at the foot of mount Crnoljeva and at the intersection of the Prizren, Urosevac and Lipljan roads. In the eastern part of Stimlje, on the foundations of an old Serb cemetery church a new one was built in 1926. East of the church there are three tombstones, each over 250 years old. In the 19th century there was an active Serb school in the churchyard.

The church was desecrated and vandalized by Albanian terrorists in the presence of the British KFOR troops
