Duži Monastery

  Duži, Trebinje     02 Mar 2020
Absolute serenity, although it hasn’t always been that way. Duži Monastery came into being at the end of 17th century, when the destruction of Tvrdoš necessitated a change of location for its monks. Things didn’t exactly get any easier here, but Duži has largely represented a place of peace for the Orthodox. The set up is a curious one — you have to actually descend to the monastery — but it shines because of it, offering something different to those willing to explore a little. Duži is found 12km outside of Trebinje, and if you’re lucky you’ll get a cup of coffee and some sweets for your troubles.
