We were taken around the church by a local priest.
Among other things he showed us this interesting tombstone brought here from the village cemetery.
The tombstone is a letter of the husband to his deceased wife Yelena Milutinova who died on June 20, 1828.
Her husband, a lieutenant colonel, expressed his message to his beloved wife on the tombstone, which is very unique indeed.
