Photographer's Note

Trebinje is famous for its magnificent churches and monasteries. As a Serbian town in Bosnia and Herzegovina Trebinje represents a lot of significant objects of Orthodox culture. When you enter Trebinje you will immediately notice the church called the Hercegovacka (Hercegovina) Gracanica. It is located on the high Crkvina Hill and literally hovers over the town. The church was built in the late XX century. It is a miniature replica of the temple of Gracanica in Kosovo. They built it in accordance with the last will of the great Serbian poet Jovan Ducic. The town of Trebinje has inherited his art collection. The poet died in 1943 in the US, and in 2000 he was reburied in the newly built church in Trebinje. Besides the church, there is a high bell tower, a fountain, an Icon Art Gallery on Crkvina Hill.
