At the morrning, at 08:00 hrs., We depart to the Mostar. Upon arrival we will make Mostar city tour
Throughout the idyllic green oasis of the Neretva River canyon, which many find is one of the most beautiful in Europe, you will emerge into sunny Herzegovina and feel the Mediterranean breath the way Bosnians do. This full day excursion will take you first to Mostar, world famous for its Old Bridge, its alleys and shops bathed with sunshine, scents and the river Neretva. Enjoy its special architecture and unique charm.
After Mostar City tour, drive to lunch to the Blagaj. This region characterizes the diversity of its above-ground and underground waters. The source of the Buna is one of the largest and most beautiful in Europe
It is the finest example of an underground karst river. It flows out of a 200m cliff wall and single-handedly creates the Buna River. Unsurprisingly, the Ottoman sultan was impressed, and ordered a tekija to be built right next to it. This 16th century house/monastery was built for the Dervish cults and is still one of the most mystical places in all of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is open to visitors all year round and serves cold drinks, tea and Turkish coffee in a beautiful garden overlooking the source of the River.The region is also known for the diversity of its flora and a number of endemic species. At lower altitudes there are many evergreen plant and deciduous thicket species, while at higher altitudes in the hills there is sparse forest. Fertile cultivable land is suitable for the agriculture typical of the Mediterranean climate.
We sudgest lunch in the restaurant „ MLINICA „ on the side of river Buna in unique environment
Further, We continue to the Počitelj.
This unique settlement, listed as a UNESCO heritage site and recent reconstruction has returned the town to its original form. It was first mentioned in 1444 but some documents show that it was built in the late 14th century upon the order of the Bosnian King Tvrtko. Besides its stunning oriental architecture and Ottoman feel, Pocitelj hosts the longest operating art colony in southeast Europe. Artists from around the world gather here to paint, among other things but importantly, the shiny red pomegranates and figs that grow in abundance on the hills of Pocitelj. The Hadzi-Alija Mosque has been reconstructed as well as the Sisman-Ibrahimpasina medresa and the Gavran Kapetanovic house, all of which are open to visitors. The most striking object in Pocitelj is the Sahat-kula, a silo-shaped fort that towers from the top of the hill above the town. It housed watchmen and military to guard against possible invasion from the Neretva Valley.
We continue to one of the best known small vine factories „Vinarija Zadro„, in the near of Čapljina.
