The Monastery of St Nikita is located north of Skopje on Skopska Crna Gora (Black Mountain), near the village of Gornjani.

The church dates from 1307, built by the Serbian King Milutin, and contains works by the Balkan painters Mihajlo and Eftihije. The church was probably built on the foundations of an earlier, Byzantine Empire church.

From the complex you can see the church St Trojca (St Holy Trinity) near Cucer, see the pictures and the tip about St Trojca.
