The name Ras was first mentioned in medieval sources of the Byzantine emperor Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus, and is related to the war between Serbia and Bulgaria in late 9th century. At the city of Ras some of the oldest Serbian art works were created. At the end of the 12th century city of Ras was the cultural center of the country.


Great monuments of architecture and painting are still preserved in the city, and bear witness to the importance of cultural activities that existed in Ras and its surroundings. The entire complex was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979.
