|Zica Monastery is the memorial of the first Serbian king, Stefan I. The construction of the main church of the monastery, the Church of Christ's Resurrection, started in 1206 and was finished before 1217, when Stefan received his royal crown from Rome. Zica is an important monastery for the history of Serbian people and their Church. Saint Sava, as the first archbishop of independent Serbian Church, made this monastery the center of the Church, which gained independence in 1219. Saint Sava also crowned his brother Stefan I and ordained the first bishops there. Stefan I's heirs, his sons, Radoslav and Vladislav were crowned and the first archbishop Arsenije, Saint Sava's successor as the Head of the Church, was ordained in the monastery.
