The Crna Reka Monastery (Црна Река) is a 13th-century Serbian Orthodox monastery located in Ribariće, in southwestern Serbia. The monastery is situated at the gorges of Ibarski Kolašin, on the Crna Reka (Black river), and includes the cave-church dedicated to Archangel Michael with 16th-century frescoes and relics of Saint Peter of Koriša. In the 16th century, Ottoman attacks forced the monks of Sopoćani to flee to the secluded Crna Reka Monastery.
