Gradac monastery is yet another beautiful restored monastery in a fabulous natural setting. It is located at the border of the Golija natural park surrounded by luxurious vegetation and hills. It is inviting to take a break and enjoy the scenery. The monastery was built from 1277 to 1282 by Helen of Anjou, the wife of king Uroš I. It was devastated and abandoned for centuries before to be finally rebuilt during 1963–1975.
Uvac Monastery is located deep in the canyon of the Uvac river. It is very remote and not so easy to access but its visit is an incredibly rewarding experience as both the monastery and its surrounding are of mesmerizing beauty. A dirt road, going 500m downhill, zigzags more than 4 km towards the monastery. It is better done on foot or with a 4x4 car.
Rujan Monastery is located on the top of a hill overseeing lake Vrutci. From the monastery, the view on the lake is beautiful and the general setting is spectacular. Rujan Monastery is actually a reconstruction of the former Rujno monastery, destroyed by the Ottomans because it held one of the first printing house in the balkans. The ruins were submerged by lake Vrutci in 1984.
We are starting a serie of articles on the beauties of Serbia. Amongst them, the numerous monasteries represent an incredible national treasure for Serbia. In this article, we visit the Ćelije Monastery, a beautiful hidden gem, nested on the hills south of Valjevo.

Linen is an ancient fiber that was widely used before cotton and synthetic fibers took over. Today, linen makes a fantastic come back as a luxury and ecological fiber. Gone are the days of the rough linen bed sheets from our grandmothers. Fresh in summer and warm in winter, linen provides unparalleled sleeping comfort.
In previous years, we have succumbed to the pressure of offering sales in our former web shop. For Biodom, after reviewing all of our regular prices down, we no longer offer sales. We think it is better to offer a fair price all year long than an overvalued price that is significantly reduced during sales.

The manufacture of fluffy woolen waddings, which are used in Revolana pure wool duvets, is carried out in several stages. It all starts with the preparation of the wool to continue with the carding and the crossing of the wadding. Finally comes the parallelization of the wadding on a machine that you will probably see nowhere else.
The scouring of wool used in Revolana products is carried out in Vučje near Leskovac. Here we see the different stages from sorting greasy wool, passing through the opener, soaking and washing.
