TREBINJE is the southernmost city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, part of the entity of Republika Srpska, and one of the lesser-known regions Herzegovina. Trebinje has a Mediterranean climate. During the year, there are about 260 sunny days, warm summers, and mild winters. Its distinctive geolocation makes it a good base to stay and explore the surrounding areas (the Adriatic coast of Dubrovnik is 30 km away, Herceg Novi 40 km, and Kotor 80 km) and western Herzegovina, including Mostar and Medjugorije.
Trebinje is rich in natural resources and has a large hydro potential as it is surrounded with water (lakes, rivers, and sea). It has a rich cultural and historical heritage from different historical periods (including 88 monuments that are protected by the state) and excellent infrastructure links (within a radius of 100 km to 4 airports). Because of these attractive attributes, Trebinje and the region of Herzegovina in general are becoming recognized for their outstanding wine tourism. Unlike the many world-famous wine regions, such as the Napa Vally of California, Bordeaux France, and Tuscany Italy, what makes this region unique as an undiscovered wine destination is that it is the only region with “wine” in its name — Herzegowina.
The medieval ruler Stefan Herzog Vukcic-Kosaca, who married the Bavarian princess, received the title of Herzog (duke) and was known as both an egoist and a lover of wine. The region – Herzegovina – is named after him.
Just as the Provence in France is famous for its lavender, Herzegovina is distinguished by the native immortelle plant, as well as a variety of other types of medicinal and aromatic plants.
