Monastery Savina, Herceg-Novi

4.5
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.

    We actually walked along the coastline and entered the Old Town via quite a few steep steps but it was well worth the climb.  more »

    Beautiful orthodox monastery just outside of Herceg Novi. They also have their own vinyard and you can taste and buy the products right there. Fine wine. Stunning views over the bay and adriatic sea.  more »

    Manastir Savina se nalazi u parku Savinska Dubrava, oko 2 km istočno od centra Herceg Novog. Podignut je u izuzetno lepom prirodnom okruženju, sa fenomenalnim pogledom na zaliv u Herceg Novom. Za razliku od konstantne gužve koja je tokom leta neizbežna u gradu, ovo mesto odiše mirom i tišinom. U okviru manastirskog kompleksa nalaze se tri crkve: mala i velika crkva Uspenja Bogorodice i crkva svetog Save, konak i groblje. Pretpostavlja se da je mala crkva Uspenja Bogorodice najranije nastala. Na unutrašnjoj strani vrata ove crkve nalazi se natpis iz 1831. godine na kojem se navodi 1030. kao godina njenog nastanka. U njoj se mogu videti najstarije freske gotičkog stila, delo kotorskog slikara Lovra Dobričevića. O periodu nastanka crkve svetog Save, koja je smeštena na uzvišenju udaljenom oko 300 m od konaka, postoje oprečni podaci. Jedni izvori govore da je nastala u 13. veku, dok drugi izvori njen nastanak vezuju za 15. vek. Velika crkva Uspenja Bogorodice izgrađena je krajem 18. veka i predstavlja spoj istočnih i zapadnih stilova gradnje. Uz manastirski konak koji je izgrađen 1937. godine, nalazi se manastirska riznica. Kristalni krst svetog Save iz 13. veka, kivot Manastira Tvrdoš iz 1615. godine, plaštanica iz 1642. godine, jevanđelje iz 1685. godine i portret ruskog cara Petra Velikog predstavljaju samo deo vrednih eksponata koji se nalaze u manastirskoj riznici.

    Манастир је као из бајке. Нађох и Бога и себе у њему. Надам се само да ће добри Бог дати да они који би требало да га воде буду руковођени Богом а не сопственом сујетом...
