The Monastery of the Holy Prince Alexander Nevsky was founded in 2020 by Bishop Photios of Zvornitsko-Tuzlansky at the church of the same name, built by Russian paratroopers from the peacekeeping contingent of the Stabilization Forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina stationed in the city of Uglevik.
The church was consecrated in 1997 by the chairman of the Synodal Department of the Moscow Patriarchate for Cooperation with the Armed Forces, Bishop Savva of Krasnogorsk and Bishop Vasily Zvornitsko-Tuzlansky (Serbian Orthodox Church), and after the withdrawal of Russian peacekeepers in 1999, it was transferred to the Serbian Orthodox Church.
