Description

Mostar - the city famous for the Old Bridge is for sure one of most beautiful places that you will see, but it is not all that Herzegovina has to offer. Konjic, Blagaj and Pocitelj are also gems of Herzegovina, so why not see them too? Professional tour guide will make sure, that You are satisfied throughout the journey. If You forget to have Your breakfast, do not worry, as our guests are provided with traditional Bosnian pie and bottle of water. There will be also something sweet, just for You to try. 

The starting point is usually in front of Info Bosnia Tourist Information Center located on main pedestrian street Ferhadija, just next to "Sarajevo Meeting of Cultures", but can be arranged from elsewhere, if requested. After a small introduction and giving to our guest bottles of water, we can start our journey. 

First stop of the day is a short visit to Konjic - unique, prehistorically inhabited place from which Herzegovina starts, famous for 17th century 6-arch Old Bridge and a perfect introduction to emerald-green Neretva river. Our journey then continues towards the restaurant famous for their homemade Pita (pie) that will satisfy both the vegetarian and omnivore.

With a full stomach, we continue towards beautiful medieval and Ottoman stone-constructed fortified village Počitelj. On our arrival, we take an easy hike towards the Kula, a silo-shaped fort overlooking the village from the top of the hill. It used to house watchmen and military as a guard against possible intrusions from the Neretva valley. 

After a short hike, we continue our way to Blagaj. Place most likely named for its mild weather patterns since "blaga" in Bosnian means "mild". Blagaj is situated at the spring of the Buna river, Europe’s most powerful, clean and drinkable river spring, settled beneath few hundred meters of rocks and 16th-century  tekke (tekija or Dervish monastery). Tekke or Dervish monastery is the unique sacral-residential example of Islamic architecture in Bosnia and Herzegovina, that was built with elements of Ottoman architecture and Mediterranean style.

One of the nicest parts of our journey is the lunch at the banks of river Buna just a few kilometers away from Blagaj. Under the shade, while listening to a sound of the river, we recommend having a local trout with traditional desert "smokvara".

After a nice meal, it is time to visit the best part of our journey- city of Mostar. Mostar has long been known for its old Turkish houses and Old Bridge, Stari Most, after which it is named. The historic part of Mostar is a result of interaction between the natural phenomena and human creativity throughout a long historical period. The architecture here presented a symbol of tolerance: a shared life of Muslims, Christians, and Jews. We focus at Mostar’s Old Bridge, Old Bazaar, and Old Town, but offer stories of Mostar’s uniqueness and cosmopolitan heritage.

Mostar is our last stop and it is a time to say goodbye to Herzegovina. In just over 2 hours we are back in Sarajevo where we take our guests to their accommodation to rest from a full day.
