Church of Blazena Ozana

The church of Blazena Ozana (Blessed Ozana) or the church of Sveta Marija od rijeke (St.. Mary of the river) was built in 1221 in the place where earlier an early Christian basilica was built which dates from VI century. In this church there used to be a baptizing fountain, which was discovered with examinations, which were done after the devastating earthquake in 1979. The frescoes in the church were painted in XIV century, and Greek painters made those pictures. In the church today there are relics of Blazena Ozana (Blessed Ozana) because of which people from Kotor call this church Blazena Ozana (Blessed Ozana).
