The earliest written record of Studenica monastery dates back to the era of St. Sava, and it reads:

„This holy monastery of ours, as you know, was like a deserted hunting ground. When our master and ruler Stefan Nemanja, who ruled all the Serbian lands, came to hunt here, he expressed fervent wish to have this monastery built here to the repose and growth of monastic order.“

In 1986, Studenica monastery was enlisted as the UNESCO world heritage site.
