Be amazed by crystal-clear water of Vrelo Bune, a karstic spring in Blagaj, and the Ottoman heritage of Blagaj, Mostar ...
First we're going to Mostar, the largest and one of the most important cities in the Herzegovina region. It is situated on the Neretva river and is the fifth-largest city in the country. Mostar was named after the bridge keepers (natively: mostari) who in the medieval times guarded the Stari Most (Old Bridge) over the Neretva. The Old Bridge, built by the Ottomans in the 16th century, is one of Bosnia and Herzegovina's most recognizable landmarks, and is considered one of the most exemplary pieces of Islamic architecture in the Balkans.
Further away, we arrive at the small town of Blagaj. Blagaj is a village-town in the south-eastern region of the Mostar basin. It is situated at the spring of the Buna river and a historical tekke (tekija or Dervish monastery). After 30 degree incline ‘goat-path’ (an hour walking from the base of Blagaj) you will see wild pomegranate trees and endemic herb shrubs.
Blagaj Tekija is considered to be the one of Bosnia and Herzegovina's most holy and ancient sites. The stunning half-timbered tekija rests beside the fast-flowing blue-green Buna River, which spills out of a darkened cliff-cave.
Our next stop is Počitelj, a town in the Čapljina municipality. The historic site of Počitelj is located on the left bank of the river Neretva, on the main Mostar to Metković road, and it is to the south of Mostar. During the Middle Ages, Počitelj was considered the administrative centre and governing centre of Dubrava župa (county), while its westernmost point gave it major strategic importance. Architecturally, the stone-constructed parts of the town are a fortified complex, in which two stages of evolution are evident: medieval, and Ottoman.
