Zlijebi Village Near Herceg Novi

Thanks to the ancient local finding of quality stone plates, the whole village is made only of stones – walls and roofs of houses, troughs, threshing floor, boundaries, even the little houses for poultry. Grey color of the stones gives to Zlijebi a special contrast compared to the green surroundings of terraced fields and orchards. The village has its ‘village duke’ – high on a cliff a huge rock that reminds of a human head. On the edge is St Nikola church, which plateau is known as one of the most beautiful viewpoints of the entrance in Boka Bay.
