Trebinja

Nature in all its pristine glory

TREBINJA

Vast historical legacies

Trebinja is full of various historical artifacts which are dated all the way up to the bronze age. The remains from the time of roman municipium – Diluntum, are also located in Trebinja. This was the place where the tombstone of the roman decurion Aplius Publius Plas from the second century AD was found. Besides the ancient remains, Trebinja also has historical monuments from the Ottoman and post-Ottoman age, like the church of st. Rok, and the house of Đuro Kriste Pećko, the leader of the insurrection against the Ottoman empire.

Trebinja is known by its beautiful landscape, views and natural springs, such as: a lake that does not dry up, Velika (big) and Mala (small) Gradina (an Illyrian town), and a beautiful view towards Hrgud, Velež and the Adriatic sea.

Due to Ottoman conquests and rebel attacks, the populace was forced to leave the surrounding settlements, which makes Trebinja full of untouched historical localities. One of these is the settlement Golokordići near Pećina.
