There is an ongoing controversy over Kosovo's bid to join the UNESCO, which would result in this site being listed as part of Kosovo and not Serbia. I just hope that all the parts involved arrive to a peaceful agreement and the heritage is preserved.

Gračanica Monastery is a Serbian Orthodox monastery located in Kosovo. It was built by the Serbian king Stefan Milutin in 1321 on the ruins of a 6th-century basilica.
The Gračanica Monastery is one of King Milutin's last monumental endowments. The monastery is located in Gračanica, a Serbian enclave in the close vicinity of Lipljan, the old residence of bishops of Lipljan. - in: wikipedia
