ABOUT THIS TOUR

Mostar is undoubtedly the most beautiful city in Bosnia and Herzegovina and is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. It is famous for the impressive Ottoman–style bridge spanning the Neretva river, which was destroyed during the war in Bosnia and Hertzegovina but subsequently rebuilt. There are still poignant reminders of the legacy of that war in the street art and damaged buildings to be found around the city, but you will also be impressed by the wonderful spirit of local people and its dramatic beauty. The buzz of the local bazaar offers a great shopping opportunity and you might be lucky enough to witness daredevil diving from the bridge during the season. From Mostar we head down to Počitelj. This fortified town contains a few scattered homes and cafes, a beautiful mosque, a tower and a citadel, surrounded by the remains of a city wall.

In 1996, Počitelj was added to the list of the world’s 100 most endangered cultural heritage sites, by the World Monuments Watch – so definitely worth a visit. We visit the glittering mosque and soak in the byzantine architecture and local market
We also visit the Blagaj Tekija. The Blagaj Tekija was built around 1520, with elements of Ottoman and Mediterranean style architecture and is now considered a national monument. The Blagaj Tekke was a monastery built specifically for the many Dervish cults of the area. A must see and we provide a fully translated tour of the monastery.
