Hercegovacka Gracanica, Trebinje

Hercegovacka Gracanica serves as a replica of the Serbian monastery Gracanica, and it's also the eternal home to Jovan Ducic, a Serbian poet, writer, and diplomat. The original 14th-century church was built in Kosovo as an endowment by Serbian medieval King Stefan Milutin. Its replica was erected in 2000 as a memorial to the famous local poet. The poet's remains were brought from the United States and buried in the monastery's crypt. Notice the decorations on the floor, which resemble the ornaments from the Prizren floor--a rare remaining fragment of another church built by the only Serbian emperor, Dusan the Mighty. The monastery complex includes a bishop's palace, library, amphitheater, and summer garden. The hill offers one of the best views of the city, the river, and the Ottoman bridge.

  • The Hercegova Gracanica Church on Mount Crkvina is the best view of sunsets, and in front of the Hercegova Gracanica Church, we see the gorgeous sunsets of Trebine. The church was built in the late twentieth century and was built entirely in accordance with the will of the great Serbian poet Jovan Duccic. Jovan Ducic (1871-1943) died in the United States, and in his final will, the poet expressed his desire to be buried at the top of the hills near Trebinje, from where he could see the whole city. His body was transferred from the United States to Trebinje in 2000 and he was relocated to a new church in Trebinje in 2000.

  • Located on a hill over Trebinje. The church is beautiful, designed as a copy of Gracanica in Kosovo. The area is well-settled and has great views of Trebinje. The room must be provided by car and has enough parking space. Make sure you become a player.

  • An absolute must in Trebinje. Take your time and stroll slowly towards the top of the hill at the end of the day to be welcome by a fantastic sunset view over the town. Worth visiting the church, but the great appeal is definitely sitting at the terrace on a summer day and enjoying the views while having a bite and a local brew. If you're into some kitsch stuff you can always buy a souvenir at the gift store.
  • Beautiful church overlooking Trebinje. Worth a visit if you are in town.
