St. George's Church was erected in the 12th century, after the older church of St. Theodore had burned down in fire.
The oldest document, in which St. George's Church is mentioned, dates from 1247. In the 13th and 14th centuries it was thoroughly reconstructed. A high bell-tower was added to the church. It is also visible in engravings from the 16th century.
According to the priest from Duklja who wrote a chronicle in the late 12th century, in this church, Grubjesa, the king of Duklja, was buried in 1125.
In 1881 it disappeared in a catastrophic gunpowder explosion[...].
