  • It is dedicated to the assumption of Mary and on the main altar is the polyptych of the assumption of Titian; It is structured with a Latin cross with three naves and a beautiful baroque dome; Very nice and delicately worked the main organ with the Baroque fris that enrich the balcony; From the outside, however, the appearance is simple even if some column and statue give a sense of importance, reiterated by the highest position, on top of some steps.

  • The Serbian Orthodox Church, called the Holy Annunciation, stands in the middle of the old town. It was built in 1877, in the Serbo-Byzantine style. In the 19TH century, the Orthodox population of Dubrovnik of Serbian origin was such a large group that required a separate temple. Now in the middle there is an icon museum, which houses the exposition of icons from the region from the 15TH to the 19TH century. The place is worth a look.
