Tvrdoš Monastery, Trebinje

4.5
Taste wines made in the centuries-long monastic tradition at Tvrdoš Monastery. Legend has it that the 15th-century Orthodox monastery was constructed on the site of an earlier church that was erected by Roman Emperor Constantine and his mother, St. Helen. You can still see the fourth-century foundations of the ancient Roman church. The monastery houses a 15th-century stone cellar and a new, modern cellar. Try to recognize the traces of peaches, kiwi, and honey in white wines and cherries or figs in red wines. The monastery also treasures an important relic--the hand of an unknown saint, probably the queen mother of Serbian medieval kings Milutin and Dragutin. Tvrdoš Monastery is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Trebinje Edition.

  • The impression of the beauty of monasteries and winery has spoiled the inhospitality of monks who are apparently over the head of tourists. Inappropriate voice and comments uncomfortably surprised us. Not all believers, he could be in a much more pleasant way to meet people with customs.

  • An exceptionally beautiful landscape complements the monastery. The mere thought that this is where Vasilius Ostroški, fame and mercy, speaks enough. Below the monastery is a wine cellar, where you can enjoy a view of a 3 km per hour and taste. The authenticity of the beautiful centuries, the wonderful environment. At the entrance is an exceptionally equipped souvenir shop, with many books, frankincense, various monastery wines.... Enjoying every respect.
