On our way to Mostar and Medjugorje we will have a short visit to the old part of Konjic. Konjic is known for The Old Stone Bridge, which was connecting the banks of Neretva river for centuries, since 1682. This lasted until WW2, when it was destroyed by German occupiers, during the withdrawal of their troops.
It was reconstructed in 2009, and it became a symbol of this charming little town again. In Konjic we can drink Bosnian coffee in a lovely place with amazing panorama of Neretva river and lovely Ottoman bridge.
Next stop is Jablanica, where you will find famous bridge that the Partisans blew up in order to trick Fascist troops during WW2. You will hear the amazing history of this bridge and one of the most famous battles in the Balkans in WW2 – “Battle on River Neretva”.
After visit to Jablanica, we arrive at Medjugorje. Over there you will experience one of the most spiritual and peaceful places on earth. One of the best descriptions of Medjugorje we have ever heard is: “Medjugorje is a place where Heaven touches the earth”. After visiting Medjugorje we are sure you will agree.
The messages attributed to Our Lady of Medjugorje have a strong following among Catholics worldwide. Medjugorje has become one of the most visited pilgrimage sites for Catholics in the world and has turned into Europe’s third most important apparition site, where each year more than 1 million people visit.
It has been estimated that 30 million pilgrims have come to Medjugorje since the reputed apparitions began in 1981. Many have reported visual phenomenon in Medjugorje including the sun spinning in the sky or changing color and figures such as hearts and crosses around the sun.
The St. James’s Church is the central place of worship in Medjugorje where you can attend masses in different languages.
After the visit to the church, we will proceed to see a unique, copper Statue of Jesus.
Later on, we proceed to the most spiritual site in Medjugorje – the Apparition Hill. This is where for the first time Lady of Medjugorje appeared and spoke.
Along the path, a wooden cross marks the site where the Virgin made the first call to peace. More to the top of the hill, you will find the statue of Lady Mary, right on the place of first apparition. Surely, this is a place like no other, a piece of heaven on earth, where you can be completely dedicated to the prayer.
After the visit to Medjugorje we continue north to Mostar.
A city of stone, historical, 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. Today it still has enough preserved architecture which speaks to the rich cultural past of this city. Our guide 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.
By far, the most famous attraction here is the Old Bridge, built in 1566 according to plans of Hayruddin. He was the great Turkish builder of the 16th c. This amazing bridge has entered UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
It’s the beating heart of the city, a strong iconic symbol of its history, one of the country’s most recognizable landmarks. 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 the bridge was built.
We will also see the Crooked Bridge – the oldest arch bridge in Mostar. Beside that, we will see Hamam – Turkish bath. It is the only Turkish bath still existing in Mostar and one of the few remaining examples in the whole of Herzegovina.
Our last stop is Kosqi Mehmed-paša Mosque, famous for it’s beautiful, original ornamentation from 17th century. Surely, an interesting fact for tourists is that they can climb mosque’s minaret, and see the most beautiful panorama. After that, you have some free time in Mostar to enjoy this enchanting place on your own before we leave Mostar and continue to Sarajevo.
