Monastery Savina, Herceg-Novi

(4.6/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
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 vacation builder to add Monastery Savina and other attractions to your Herceg-Novi vacation plans.

  • Went here on a dull rainy day. Still beautiful, you can walk through the forest and then graveyards. The silence broke the Group of elderly tourists from Italy.

  • The place is beautiful! But troubled beggars and a bunch of schoolchildren. The cemetery and the temple itself. Graves as fresh, and 300-400 years.

  • Lep manastir.
  • Very nice place
  • In each new location a tourist must visit the market and the cemetery, because looking at the places of rest, you can understand how people treat their ancestors
