Photographer's Note

Hilandar Monastery was founded in the end of 12th century by St. Savva, the patron saint of Serbs and his father, St. Symeon (named Stefan Nemanja before becoming a monk, the first Serbian king)
In 1426 Gjon Kastrioti from Albania and his three sons (one of them was Skanderbeg) donated the right to the proceeds from taxes collected from the two villages (Rostuša and Trebište in FYROM) and from the church of Saint Mary, which was in one of them, to the Hilandar where his son Reposh Kastrioti retired and died in 25 July 1431: in his honor the Saint George tower of Hilandar was known as the Albanian tower (Serbian: Arbanaški pirg, propably the one shown in this photo).
