Full description

Mostar, the most popular city in Herzegovina is probably one of most beautiful cities in our country, but it is not all that Herzegovina has to offer. Konjic and Blagaj are also jewels of Herzegovina, so why not visiting them too. You will follow the path of the emerald-green Neretva River on route to Mostar. The first stop of the day is a short visit to Konjic, a prehistorically inhabited town from which Herzegovina originates. It is famous for its 6-arch Old Bridge built in 17th century, mysterious Yugoslavian atomic shelter, amazing wood craftsmanship – it is a perfect place to have a coffee break on this trip.

Mostar is the next destination on the route. Upon arrival in Mostar, you will discover it is a city of contrasts, rich in culture. Mostar is famous for the impressive Ottoman-style bridge spanning the Neretva River, which was destroyed during the war in BiH but subsequently rebuilt. The historic part of Mostar you will be visiting is a result of interaction between the natural phenomena and human creativity throughout a long historical period. Walking the medieval cobbled streets, a guided tour of the historic part of the city will focus at Mostar’s Old Town, Old Bridge, Old Bazaar – it will be a unique opportunity to hear more about its uniqueness and cosmopolitan heritage. The buzz of the local bazaar offers a shopping opportunity.

After Mostar, it is time to visit the town of Blagaj, located just 13 kilometres from Mostar, where the tour continues. Blagaj is situated at the spring of the Buna River, Europe’s most powerful, clean and drinkable river spring, settled beneath few hundred meters high rock. Here you will enjoy lunch at the banks of river Buna just a few kilometres away from Blagaj. Under the shade of trees, listening to the sound of the river, enjoy local trout – the most important thing to do due to famousness and cleanliness of Buna River. Next to the spring and under the rock, you will see Blagaj Tekke - national monument and a monastery built around 1520, for the Dervish cults - a fascinating stop, with elements of Ottoman and Mediterranean style architecture.

With a full stomach and after Blagaj, it is time to say goodbye to Herzegovina. Head back to your accommodation in Sarajevo in just 2 hours.
