History

The St. Nicolas Church is located in Drajcic village in Prizren. This is a small building, built around the end of the 16th century. The foundation of the church is rectangular, built in stone. Later, in 1925, an auxiliary building was added, where the bell tower was cast. The church is not plastered from the outside, while the interior and the bell tower are both plastered. The building is single-naved, semi-circular lintel, covered in two-gutter roofing and argyle roof tiles. Frescoes are crafted in a special style, which is not usual for the period and the area. Inside, there are also wood carved icons. The wood iconostas is painted in intensive colours, in red and yellow. Close to the church, there is an old bell tower, and old cemetery. In various periods, several restoration works have been undertaken.
