Nature Park Trebjesa
Trebjesa was first mentioned in the 12th century in the Chronicle of the Priest Dukljanin (“Ljetopis Popa Dukljanina”). Since then it has continued to be an irreplaceable part of this town and its citizens.
On the southwest side of Trebjesa, there are 3 springs from which the river Mrkošnica originates, and on this particular small area, the existence of 14 endemic plant species has been proven. Nonetheless, Trebjesa is a habitat for a significant number of animal species, many of which are on the European World Red List, protected by many international conventions and the presence of endemic species has also been recorded.
At the foothill of Trebjesa, there are tennis courts, a small sports stadium, a martial arts hall, a football field, the promenade 'Vito Nikolic' along with the city park.
