The Crna Reka Monastery (Serbian: Манастир Црна Река, romanizedManastir Crna Reka; "Black River Monastery") is a 13th-century[1] Serbian Orthodox monastery located in Ribariće, Tutin, southwestern Serbia. The monastery is situated at the gorges of Ibar Kolašin, on the Crna River [sr] ("Black River"), and includes the cave-church dedicated to Archangel Michael with 16th-century frescoes and relics of Saint Peter of Koriša. In the 16th century, Ottoman attacks forced the monks of Sopoćani to flee to the secluded Crna Reka Monastery.
