Visit two countries in one day on this full day private tour. Highlights include Trebinje Old City, Bay of Kotor, Perast Museum, and Kotor Old City. You’ll also have an opportunity to visit Our Lady of the Rocks, an artificial islet created by sinking old ships loaded with stones. This is an excellent choice for travelers who are short on time and want to maximize their cultural experience.

“Trebinje is like Tripolis, Greece,” said Leader Kostoula Kapogiannis. “They are warm, hospitable and enjoy going for walks in the cities and having coffee.” Talking to the average person, He/she sense the pain of losing their country of Yugoslavia, their fortunes and their members of family. They are deeply religious Serbian Orthodox believers, who believe in their church first. They have rebuilt their homes. Bullets in the walls are not seen as in Mostar, Bosnia. They are an independent people, rebuilding their fortunes with a sorrowful smile. The middle class suffers in all upheaval. The church’s paintings were painted between 1999-2004 by iconographers Aleksanda Zivadinovic and Darko Milojevic of the Serbian Art Conservatory of Belgrade. The narthex was painted by deacon Nikola Lubardic. The Greek Orthodox Church donated the iconostasis. In 2019, Tvrdos is the ecclesiastical center of the ancient Diocese of Hum founded by Saint Sava from 1219.

We came to the parking of the monastery at about 7:30 a.m. when the monastery should already have been open (opening time is 7:00 a.m.). Unfortunately, the main gate was still closed, so we had to use the “back door” to find someone who will open the gate. It was not an easy job while some workers who were working there told us that visitors could not pass the private part of the monastery. Then by chance a monk came and said he thought the gate was already open. When we entered we wanted to take some photos but he said no photos were allowed. We were a bit confused because we saw no sign about that. Well, we finally entered and the interior of the monastery was really charming. Because of the early hour we didn’t go to taste wine, so I can not comment that.

Beautiful place with so much history, I got to wander in and take pictures myself but didn't do a tour like I wanted because kept getting the run-around from the back to the front on where to go and who to talk to in order to even arrange it.

This combines historical interest with bacchanalian spirit. Wear long shorts or skirts to cover knees or pick up a blue sarong as you enter grounds. The grounds date back to 15th century with some evidence of 4th century Roman architecture but most recent building 1924! The cellar houses a wine tasting for 3 euros a head so gr8 if you're not the driver. Souvenir shop allows handy wine outlet aswell as religious materials
