The Pastrovic clan live along the most beautiful part of the Adriatic Coast, between Budva and Petrovac Their oldest tribe is the Rezevici after whom the monastery and the nearby river are named. At a confluence on the river peoples' assemblies were held, judges and representatives of authority were elected, and important decisions were made. It was here also that the prince who ruled over the Pastrovici was elected. The last prince was Stefan Stiljanovic - St. Stefan - whose relics rest in the Cathedral of Belgrade.

The Pastrovici have four monasteries: Praskvica, Gradiste, Rezevici, and Duljevo, as well as thirty six parish churches.
