It is in the shadow of the mountain Tronosa (Tronoša), 17 km from Loznica. Serbian king Dragutin and his wife, queen Katarina in 1317, built the monastery. Queen Katarina was the daughter of Hungarian king Stefan. King Dragutin got this part of Serbia as a wedding present. When he was building the monastery Dragutin was not the king of Serbia. It was his brother Milutin. He also built monasteries on the other side of the Drina river (now Bosna I Herzegovina).
The monastery had been demolished a few times by the Turks, and then in 1941 by the Germans who took everything worth from it. It was rebuilt in 1960`s.
Tronosa was one of the first schools of Vuk Karadzic, a Serbian language reformer (XIX century).You can reach the monastery by car or by walking along a 4 km long path. This was the same path that Vuk used to walk every day from his village, Trsic.
