Mostar city and the whole Herzegovina region are must see and “taste” by anyone ever coming to Bosnia and Herzegovina or area of the Balkans.
That is why we have designed Herzegovina Tour which offers a lot from perspective of cultural diversity and unique history, truly amazing scenery and delicious food as well. Join us for this amazing, UNESCO based trip and get to see Herzegovina region attractions.
Herzegovina tour starts from Sarajevo, and includes visits to four amazing and unique places: Konjic, Jablanica,Blagaj, and of course, the most sigificant pearl of Herzegoviana – Mostar.
First stop of the day is a short visit to old part of Konjic town. Konjic is known for the Old Stone Bridge, which was connecting the banks of the Neretva river for centuries, since 1682. until WW2, when it was destroyed by German occupier, during the withdrawal of their troops.
It was reconstructed in 2009 as the original bridge and has been on the list of national monuments of BiH since 2003.
The next stop of our tour is Jablanica. It’s a small town famous for it’s fallen bridge where the famous Battle of Neretva took place. In that important history spot Yugoslavia Partisans managed to win a very unlikely battle against the Axis Powers in WW2. Nowadays, destroyed bridge still remains as a symbol of wartime sacrifice and difficulties.
Next destination is Blagaj – a haven of peace and natural harmony. The Blagaj Tekke, or the Dervish Monastery, was built around 1520. The monastery is an important monument of the early Ottoman period in Bosnia & Herzegovina. It has been used by the dervishes in order to perform special called Dhikr (praise to God).
The Blagaj Tekke is situated by the Spring of River Buna, surrounded by beautiful mountains. In the silence of the Dervish house’s garden, cooled by the freshness of a wonderful river with the most spectacular view, you will understand why Blagaj was the focus of interest of historical personalities, Roman nobility, Ottoman viziers and kadis, Austro-Hungarian officers and many travelers searching for the freshness of the water, warmth of sun and blue skies.
In the end, it’s time for exploring Mostar – one of the most important pearsl of Bosnia and Herzegovinia. A city of stone on stone, historic, political, scientific and cultural center of Herzegovina lies at the foot of the slopes of Velez Mountain, in the Neretva River valley.
Mostar was one of the most destroyed cities during the war in Bosnia, but even today it has enough preserved mounumetns testifiying the rich cultural past of this city. Our guides will accompany you to the old town. This is where you will find the famous bridge and the largest concentration of historic and cultural sights. The most significant attraction of the city, the Old Bridge of Mostar, was built in 1566 according to plans of Hayruddin, the great Turkish builder of the 16th c.
It has entered UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2015 and it t’s the beating heart of the city. The bridge is 24m high and you will frequently see members of the Mostar Diving Club dive off the bridge. The practice dates back to the time when the bridge was built.
We will also see Kriva Ćuprija, the oldest arch bridge in Mostar. Another boulding we will visit is Hamam – Turkish bath which is the only Turkish bath still existing in Mostar and one of the few remaining examples in the whole of Herzegovina.
Visiting this location will have the unique opportunity to take an immersive step “back in time,” engaging in an element of Mostar lifestyle that has been prevalent for centuries.
We will not miss to shoy you Koski Mehmed Pasha Mosque, the second biggest mosque in Mostar, whose original color and wall decorations have been preserved. Visitors are allowed to climb the minaret, which offers a panoramic view of the city and The Old Bridge.
We will pass through Kujundžiluk – Old Bazzar which winds along a small, pretty, cobbled street, dating back to the middle of the 16th century, where characteristic crafts shops and traditional restaurants are found. In the past, it was the pulsing heart of the business world in the whole of the region with more than 500 workshops in the Ottoman era.
“When you spend a night in Mostar, it is not the sound that wakes you up in the morning, but- the light. I know this from my own experience. It was the light that welcomed me when I arrived, it followed me from the morning to the evening, and when I left, that light forever stayed in me as the main characteristic of my memories of Mostar…”
