  about Saint Jovan Vetersko monastery

The monastery Saint Jovan the Baptist is situated on the E-75 / M-1 highway (Petrovec-Veles junction), in the vicinity of Vetersko village.
Saint Jovan Vetersko is an interesting monastery church, built on a rock and can be seen from the rest area.
It is presumed that the Vetersko monastery was built in 1670. According to the writings of the great Macedonian reformer Jordan Hadzi Konstantinov-Dzinot, this sacral building had a big library of scripts and printed books in the middle of the 19th century, which proves that monks have been staying in the monastery, who have been rewriting religious books, collecting scripts which have served to the monks and the local population as a source of enlightenment.
