In the village of Zletovo, near Kratovo it is located the monastery church devoted to the archangels Michael and Gabriel. The church is raised at the place of an older church, under the patronage of Jovan Oliver, the stepfather of the famous tzar Dusan. During the reign of tzar Dusan, this monastery gets a status of episcopacy.

The architectonic composition of the church is in a shape of equilateral cross interposed in a rectangle, where the cross clearly is expressing on the exterior. The altar apsis on the exterior side is a hexahedron with angles distinctively marked with thin pillars. Later is built the narthex of the church, with a dome identical like the one in the church. The picturesqueness of the facade is enlarged with ornamental blind colonnades.

In the 17th century is finished the surrounding of the church with raising monastic cells and a dining room. The today’s rests of these cells can be seen on the new cells, built in the 19th century.
