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.

  • 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 »

  • Lovely place with a great view.
  • The monastery is visible from many places on land and from the sea. It is worth to breathe here on a hot day.
