Monastery Donje Brcele

The monastery Donje Brcele is located in Vripazar. It is made up of the church of Sveti Nikola (St. Nicolas), which was raised by Jelena Balsic, daughter of Sveti Knez Lazar (St. Prince Lazar).

This monastery is famous for the fact that in it lies the false emperor Scepan Mali (a man of unknown origin who ruled Montenegro from 1767 until he died in 1773 presenting himself as the Russian emperor Petar III).

Nikola I Petrovic has renewed this monastery in 1861.
