Church of Saint Jovan the Baptist, Vetersko

The Monastery of St. Jovan the Baptist is situated at 25 km to the north of Veles, near the road to Skopje, on the slopes of the village Vetersko. It is presumed that the monastery was built in 1670. According to the writings of the great Macedonian reformer Jordan Hadži Konstantinov-Džinot, this sacral building had a big library of scripts and printed books in the middle of the XIX 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.
