Hercegovacka Gracanica, Trebinje

(4.9/5 based on 120 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Herzegovinian Gračanica is a replica of the church of the Gračanica Monastery in Kosovo. The greatest Serbian poet and diplomat Jovan Dučić was buried here. This is a jewel of Serbian Orthodox culture and spirituality.
  • Beautiful church and one of the city's sights. Nice view of the city and surounding area.
  • Even if you're not interested in seeing the monastery, it's worth coming here for the tranquility and the spectacular view of the town and the mountains. Absolutely beautiful.
  • Beautiful church on the beautiful place.
