The frescoes at Studenica are outstanding. To someone used to mainstream Western European art, they're also extraordinarily refreshing.
Guidebooks in various languages are for sale in the monastery shop by the entrance. Get one before you go in, so you'll know who's who and what's what.
I came in an old Mercedes with a driver from Novi Pazar, going through the forest by the river. It takes about an hour and a half, not going very fast. If you do it like that, you could combine your visit to Studenica with one to Zica monastery, another UNESCO site, nearer Kraljevo.
