Taste wines made in the centuries-long monastic tradition at Tvrdoš Monastery. Legend has it that the 15th-century Orthodox monastery was constructed on the site of an earlier church that was erected by Roman Emperor Constantine and his mother, St. Helen. You can still see the fourth-century foundations of the ancient Roman church. The monastery houses a 15th-century stone cellar and a new, modern cellar. Try to recognize the traces of peaches, kiwi, and honey in white wines and cherries or figs in red wines. The monastery also treasures an important relic--the hand of an unknown saint, probably the queen mother of Serbian medieval kings Milutin and Dragutin. Tvrdoš Monastery is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.
