Monastery in Žitomislić

Žitomislić Monastery is one of the most culturally significant Orthodox monasteries in Herzegovina from the 16th century, and is dedicated to the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is located in a valley on the way from Mostar to the southern border of Bosnia and Herzegovina, on the western edge of the old area of Dubrava. In the old area of Hum, it is the westernmost Orthodox monastery. The largest founders of the monastery were from the Miloradović and Hrabren families.

The Žitomislić Monastery, preserved until 1992, had a library with dozens of old manuscripts from the 16th and 17th centuries that arrived here as a gift or copied, as well as a small archive of Turkish documents. Important calligraphic works kept in the monastery are Ćeladkov's Gospel, Mineji, Panegyric, Oktoh, Prayer Book, Miracles of the Virgin Mary. The monastery was completely destroyed in 1992. During 2003 and 2005, the church and the old inn were renovated and consecrated by Serbian Patriarch Pavle in May 2005.
