Bosnia and Herzegovina is a multinational country with a complex history. We examine the region of Bosnia near the Montenegrin border called the Republic of Srpska. The road from Budva to the nearest interesting point, the city of Trebinje, will take only a couple of hours.
There is no sea and magnificent palaces, but this place has a unique southern and original charm.
Trebinje is a beautiful bright city on the bank of the Trebišnice River. There is an old quarter with Austrian buildings of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Turkish stone bridges, Orthodox and Catholic churches, as well as mosques. Huge plane trees, summer cafes, fountains and parks make the city comfortable and enjoyable to live.
After a walk in the city, we climb the hill Tsrkvine to admire the panorama from a height. On the hill is the Hercegovachka Gracanitsa monastery, the testament of the poet and the famous citizen Trebinje, an amphitheater for summer concerts, an observation deck and a cozy cafe. The view from the hill is fascinating: the ribbon of the river winds along the green valley, the vineyards reach the horizon. Arslanagich Bridge, one of the three famous Ottoman bridges of the country, is also visible from the hill. To him leads the embankment in the shade of fig trees.
Dine in Trebinje at your favorite Studenac restaurant, which serves fresh trout and Serbian specialties. Ponds full of fish decorate the terrace of the restaurant.
And just a few kilometers from the city stands the Tvrdosh Monastery.
Tvrdosh - a place where he took the monastic vows and started the service Basil. In time, his name will receive the prefix Ostrog, in the monastery of the same name. St. Basil and after death helps people, his relics are miraculous and are now in the monastery complex Ostrog.
And in Tvrdoshe ancient winemaking traditions are preserved and respected. Monastic wine has won any prestigious competition and takes the most worthy positions at regular exhibitions and competitions of wine makers. Tasting and buying wine is available right in the cellar of the monastery.
