Itinerary

  • Stop 1: Blagaj 
Buna River Spring
Science confirmed that the Buna river spring is the largest amongst karst ones in the entire Europe (springs out 43 cubic meters of water per second). True or false, but everybody will witness crystal clear water, of a specific greenish-emerald nuance. Most importantly, water coming out from the rock is drinkable.

Once in Blagaj, you will immediately understand why this place is unavoidable and must-see in Herzegovina. Blagaj is known for the two, mutually associated, natural and religious/historic attractions: Buna river springs and Dervish house.

Buna is a subterranean river that disappears through a sinkhole roughly 20 km far from Blagaj cliff and emerges again at this unique place before it flows into Neretva 9 km downstream from Blagaj.

In front of the famous spring, ever since the late 15th century, a Dervish house hosts both dervishes and other travellers. The house stands as one of the authentic and unique examples of religious architectural ensembles of the Ottoman-Islamic cultural sphere in Bosnia and Herzegovina. 

  • Stop 2: Počitelj
Pocitelj
The houses, gardens and streets of Počitelj are in utter harmony with nature. God-made work here goes “hand in hand” with man-made structures. That is one of the reasons why many people found this place as their home in the past, as well as today.

Perched upon an amphitheatre shaped cliff, the walled town of Počitelj secured one of the most important border crossings for the mighty Ottoman Empire. In the past 10 years, any tour operator that works in Bosnia includes Počitelj in the itineraries. The sole integrity of the Počitelj urban ensemble is predominantly preserved in its consistency from medieval times to the early 19th century. 

Private and public buildings of Počitelj are standing as the hardest proof of the historic importance this place has had once upon a time.

The beautiful view on Neretva river valley, at the site where Neretva flows freely towards its confluence with the Adriatic coast, won’t leave anyone indifferent. Taste local fresh grapes, pomegranate, figs, strawberries, and tangerine. Don’t fall in love with Počitelj too quickly since Herzegovina offers many other beautiful and delightful places.

  • Stop 3: Kravice Waterfalls
Kravice Waterfalls
The Emerald green nuance of the Trebižat river comes from minerals from rocks of karst that Herzegovina abounds with.

Many visitors and locals refer to this destination as Herzegovinian Niagara Falls, given its grace and beauty. Sitting in a relative vicinity of West Herzegovinian town of Ljubuški, it is the example of a unique breathtaking attraction made of travertine sedimentations of the Trebižat river.

A natural pool in an amphitheatre shape below the waterfall of the height from 26-28 m does represent a convenient place to take a swim during the summer season. At this time, your swimsuit could be a piece of optimal personal equipment, but if not, mere being at this very place will provide you with a satisfying feeling of comfortableness.

  • Stop 4: Radimlja, Stećci Necropolis
Radimlja
20 out of 28 locations that were inscribed on the UNESCO list back in 2016 are situated in Bosnia. Radimlja Necropolis lies alongside the state road 3 km far from Stolac and lures passengers to stop and inspect the importance of these scattered limestone.

Approximately 45 min of an easy ride will take us to the interesting and one of crucial locations when it comes to the medieval past and statehood of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Apart from diverse fortresses scattered all around the strategic essential sites during the Bosnian Middle Ages, Stećci are standing as the “Stone sleepers” and as the strongest confirmation of Bosnian centuries-old sovereignty.

Decorative motifs and epitaphs engraved on most of the tombstones narrate the story that many researchers are still trying to fully understand and demystify. Learn about the religious make-up of Medieval Bosnia and Herzegovina, its specificity and the wisdom of living at the place which always used to be a crossroads of civilisations.

  • Stop 5: Stolac
Stolac
Authenticity of the town as an imperative

We are supposed to arrive in Stolac just at the right time to have a lunch break. Many cosy restaurants are offering traditional Herzegovinian dishes. Our recommendation would be a “Mlinica Old Mill” placed in front of the breathtaking Provalije Waterfall. A perfect moment to recap your impressions so far in the relaxing sound of the water at the very bank of the Bregava river, a pearl of Stolac urban zone, with its turquoise nuance, astonishing rapids, and countless canals.

Stolac’s rich past consists of elements of Antiquity, Middle Ages, Ottoman, Austro-Hungarian and Yugoslav legacy. We will pay a visit to the ancient city of Daorson, Stolac breathtaking fortress overlooking the town, and walk through the urban town zone. Mosques, both Roman-Catholic and Orthodox churches are standing side by side, while one of the most important Jewish pilgrimage sites in the Stolac’s outskirts fulfills the story of the coexistence between Abrahamic religions.

  • Stop 6: Vjetrenica Cave
Vjetrenica Cave
A first of this kind in a world by its biodiversity with a total length of canals of 7014 m and 1800 m of paved trails.Ever since 1952 Vjetrenica cave has been a protected monument of nature.

After we depart from Stolac, a 50 min long journey will take us to the Popovo polje karst plain, the largest of its kind in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We will cross the plain and drive towards the Vjetrenica cave

The sole name of the cave is derived from the Bosnian word for wind (Bos. vjetar) therefore, Vjetrenica, a wind cave. As soon as you enter a cave, accompanied by the professional guide, you’ll get to feel the gust of wind. As soon as you move deeper into the cave, a wind will tend to die down. No worries, a professional guide will supply you with professional gear (windproof jackets and helmets for your safety). Allow yourself to take the role of a speleologist.

  • Stop 7: Tvrdoš Monastery
Tvrdos Monastery
One of the most interesting stops of the day is a visit to the XV century Serbian Orthodox monastery founded on the remains of the IV century Byzantine church.

After refreshing your body and soul during the exploration of the Vjetrenica cave, a journey continues. A pleasant, straight road 45 min drive will bring us to the pride of Herzegovina, the Orthodox monastery of Tvrdoš.
Monastery itself is dedicated in the honour of the Dormition to the Most Holy Theotokos, at the very banks of the charming Trebišnjica river.

History narrates that the Tvrdoš Monastery was built at the turn of the 14th century, by the Serbian medieval king of Milutin. Turbulent historic circumstances exposed the monastery to the tough times followed by demolitions, but the monastery rose every time being even more charming and beloved by the locals.

  • Stop 8: Trebinje
Trebinje
Trebinje lies at the favourable location, in the very southeastern edge of Bosnia and Herzegovina, hence in a relative nearness to Bay of Kotor and Dubrovnik.

Whether saving the best for last or not, but the town of Trebinje according to many opinion polls in Bosnia holds the title of the most beautiful town. Either because of the breathtaking Trebišnjica river, its unique profane Mediterranean architecture, pleasant climate, beautiful people, one of a kind sacral architecture or something else, you will be the jury.

You can choose between easy wandering through the streets of the Old Town, a boat ride on the Trebišnjica river, enjoying the stunning view from the plateau of the Herzegovinian Gračanica monastery, or the walk over the Arslanagić bridge. Or simply don’t choose amongst these options, experience them all before we depart to our final stop in Kotor.
