Velušina (Velushina) – St. George (Velushki Monastery)

St. George – Velušina (Velushina) Manastirot Sv. Gorgi – Манастир Св. Ѓорѓи Велушина – Velushki Monastery – Велушки манастир

The Velushki Monastery complex and church dedicated to St. George is located near the village of Velušina (Velushina) which is 15 kilometers south of Bitola (Битола) on route R2333 (about six kilometers north of the border with Greece).  The village of Velushina is located at the foot of Mount Baba in the Pelagonija (Пелагонија) Valley.

We happened to be in the area and came across this monastery.  There were a few vacationers there, but no one with any information about the monastery but an inscription we found indicates the church was built in 1848.
