Monastery Savina, Herceg-Novi

4.5
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Herceg-Novi
At Monastery Savina, see the relics originating from the time of Nemanjic royal family, such as artifacts of Empress Jelena, the cross of Saint Sava, and the shroud from the Tvrdos monastery. The monastery complex features a Baroque cathedral, an 11th-century church, dormitories with the treasury, and the church of St. Sava, isolated on a nearby hill. The monastery's architecture is a mixture of styles--Byzantine, ancient Greek, Roman, and Baroque. Above the door on the inside of the small church, look for an inscription from 1831, which notes that the structure was built in 1030. Several layers of frescoes on the inner walls illustrate the life of Jesus. Use our Herceg-Novi trip builder app to add Monastery Savina and other attractions to your Herceg-Novi vacation plans.

  • The Savina monastery is one of the most beautiful examples of Baroque in the Adriatic region. Consists of three churches: two dedicated to the assumption of the Virgin and the other to Saint Sava, founder of the Orthodox Church of Serbia and it gives its name to the religious complex. Inside some relics are preserved as the cross of Saint Sava in the 13th century glass. The monastery is also famous, by frescoes and icons, one of them dating from 1831. The institution dates back to the year 1030.

  • The main church is interesting, but I was particularly been seduced by old paintings inside the Church on the left. I think that alone are worth the visit.
