On the Skadar Lake, at the foot of the mountain Odrinska, away from prying eyes, located medieval monastery Kom. Precise data on the beginning of construction of the monastery there, but there is speculation that it was conducted in the period from 1415 on 1427 years.

At first, the monastery is a small single-deck building, but were later completed the side chapels and a large porch. The painting was carried out in two stages. Throughout its existence, the monastery is often closed, but the church service is to this day, and it continues to be visited by tourists and pilgrims from all over the world.

The Monastery of Kom is the most secluded monastery dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Located on a hill, it is surrounded by marshes. In the summer it can be reached by drying path, and at other times it turns into a separate island, reachable only by swimming.

Now in the monastery, in addition to the church, there are several communal cells and hospice with a refectory and economic unit.
