The stećak – tombstones are medieval monolithic stone monuments related to the entire territory of present-day Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as parts of Serbia, Montenegro and Croatia. Based on the available data, it can be confirmed that they may occur from the other halves of XII. that the first phase lasts through XIII. century, to intensely kneel and decorate in the XIV. and XV. century. In the sixteenth century, this kind of art gradually disappeared.
They are now part of the UNESCO heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
