  • Simply amazing church with many beautiful hand painted pictures. The Serbian Orthodox Church of the Holy Annunciation was built in 1877 for the Dubrovnik Serbian community by the architect Marina Groppelia. It has to be mentioned that this church is still active. If you visit the old town of Dubrovnik then it's a must visit sightseeing, highly recommended to everyone.
  • The Church of Holy Annunciation is located in the Old Town of Dubrovnik and a must visit if you have the chance. There were a lot of cats in front of the big gates and that caught my attention, but as soon as I stepped inside, I was completely blown away by its beauty and history.
