Trebinje is located in the hinterland of the southern Adriatic, only 25 kilometers from the sea. This town is a veritable treasury of cultural-historical heritage, created by a mixture of different peoples and civilizations that have passed through the area. Orient and Mediterranean blend gives it a special charm, so that the spirit and charm of these different worlds can be felt at every turn.

The Old Town of Trebinje was established in the 18th century and soon developed into a trading and crafts centre named Kastel. There is barely a town in Herzegovina that was not erected alongside a freshwater river. Trebinje is no exception: its old town lines the banks of the Trebisnjica River that flows through the heart of the city. The river and the city have always been known for the enormous old mills treading the Trebisnjica. Although they arenot fully functional today, they remain a symbol of Herzegovina's not-so-distant past when everything was directly connected to the power of nature.

Arslanagića Bridge (also Hajdarbegova ćuprija) is historical monument in Trebinje, which extends over the river Trebišnjica. It’s not known who built it and when exactly. Today’s name comes from the period after the arrival of the Austro-Hungarian administration. According to the folk tradition, which was written about 100 years ago, the bridge was built by Hajdarbeg Kusturica.

Tvrdoš monastery is Serbian Orthodox monastery from 15th century, dedicated to the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokas. It was built upon the stone formations of Tvrdoš along the right side of the banks of Trebišnjica River, four kilometer west of Trebinje. The 4th century foundations of the first Roman churche on the site are still visible. Today, monastery is renoved for its wine production.

Gračanica Church (the Grachanica of Herzegovina) is a copy of the famous Gračanica monastery in Kosovo and Metohija. The church is located on the top of the hill Crkvina near Trebinje. At the site where now stands the new Grachanica, there was already a christian church (probably from 6th century). The famous Serbian poet, Jovan Dučić (1871-1943) is buried there. When he died on April 7, 1943 he was buried in the Serbian Orthodox monastery of Saint Sava in Libertyville, Illinois (USA). He was reburied here on October 22, 2000 in the newly built church. The church complex includes an amphitheater, the Bishop’s home, a gallery with icons, a summer garden, a library and a belttower. The church can be seen from every place in the town of Trebinje, and it is said to be the most beautiful sacred place in Eastern Herzegovina.
