a monastery in Serbia, in the Kosovo autonomous province, near the town of Priŝtina. Founded about 1315.

In the center of Gračanica monastery there is an outstanding monument of medieval Serbian architecture—the five-domed cross-vaulted Church of the Annunciation (1315–21). It is built of alternated rows of stone and brick. The church has tiers of supporting arches that converge toward the center, high cupola drums with narrow windows and little arches, and around the windows a light geometrical design made of brick, which adds to the well-proportioned and decorative grace of the church. There are murals in the church. Its western vestibule dates from the 14th century and the second half of the 16th century.
