About Mostar tour

Mostar tour 1st stop: Konjic

The first stop of the day tour is a short visit to the old part of Konjic. The symbol of Konjic is The Old Stone Bridge, which was connecting the banks of Neretva river for centuries.

It was since 1682. until WW2, when the German occupiers destroyed it, during the withdrawal of their troops. It was reconstructed as the original bridge in 2009, and has been on the list of national monuments of BiH since 2003.

Then we continue through some really amazing parts of Neretva river canyon, telling the unique stories of Herzegovina.

Mostar tour 2nd stop: Kravice Waterfall

After Konjic we arrive at our next stop – Kravice waterfalls. Kravice waterfall, located on the Trebižat River is s a mini version of Niagara Falls, hidden in the Balkans.

Kravice waterfalls form a natural amphitheater 40 km southwest of the city of Mostar. For its amazing beauty and untouched nature, the state has protected it as a natural rarity. Its height is 25 meters. Moreover, Kravice waterfall is a popular swimming and picnic area.

Mostar tour 3rd stop: Počitelj

Later on, we arrive at Pocitelj – the stepped Ottoman-era fortress village. It is a medieval and Ottoman-Mediterranean wonder of nature and architecture, a place like no other. Cupped in a steep rocky amphitheater, it’s a warren of stairways climbing between ramshackle stone-roofed houses and pomegranate bushes.

Towering over this dreamlike scene is the Kula (Fort of Počitelj), at 45m above sea level, it offers breathtaking views. In only one photo you will have Neretva River, impressive Hajji Alija’s mosque, the mekteb (Muslim primary school), the imaret (charitable kitchen), the medresa (Muslim high school), the hamam (public baths), the han (public inn) and sahat-kula (clock-tower).

On the other hand, the most dominant residential structure in the village is Gavrakanpetanović House. In that house there were thousands of artists and cultural actors from all over the world for the International Art Colony. Počitelj has a magical air that transcends time. It is a place just to wander, get lost in thoughts, and feel a profound sense of wonder and serenity.

Mostar tour 4th stop: Blagaj

Our next destination is Blagaj – a haven of peace and natural harmony. In Blagaj you will see a Tekke – the Dervish Monastery, built around 1520. The monastery is an important monument of the early Ottoman period in Bosnia & Herzegovina.

The dervishes have been using the monastery in order to perform their special rituals – Dhikr (praise to God). Blagaj Tekke is situated by the Spring of the river Buna, surrounded by beautiful mountains. In the silence of the Dervish house’s garden, cooled by the freshness of the wonderful river with the most spectacular view.

Therefore, 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, the warmth of the sun and blue sky.

Mostar tour 5th stop: Mostar

So in the end, it’s time for Mostar tour from Sarajevo – the lovely experience in one of the most important pearls of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mostar is a city of stone on stone, historical, political, scientific and cultural center of Herzegovina. It 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 architecture speaks to the rich cultural past of this city.

Famous Old Bridge of Mostar

The most famous attraction in Mostar is the Old Bridge, built in 1566 according to plans of Hayruddin, the great Turkish builder of the 16th c. From 2005 it is on  UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Above all, it’s the beating heart of the city, a strong iconic symbol of its history and one of the country’s most recognizable landmarks.

The bridge is 24m high, but in spite of that, 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.

In Mostar you will find Hamam – a Turkish bath. It is the only Turkish bath still existing in Mostar and one of the few remaining examples in the whole of Herzegovina. By visiting this location you 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.

In addition, Mostar tour from Sarajevo will cover Koski Mehmed Pasha Mosque, the second biggest mosque in Mostar. Its original color and wall decorations have been preserved until today. You can climb the mosque’s minaret, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the city and The Old Bridge.

Kujundžiluk – Old Bazzar, winds along a small, pretty, cobbled street, dating back to the middle of the 16th century. Therefore, you can find characteristic crafts shops and traditional restaurants in this area.

Mostar – city like no other

“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…”

Ivo Andric, Nobel Prize winner

In conclusion, we will ride and walk through fascinating landscapes, interesting villages and cities, historical museums, we will go back to history and learn about Ottoman Empire, WW2, Tito’s Yugoslavia and taste delicious Bosnian food and enjoy the tradition. The day you will certainly never forget!

Our tour guide is Armina. She was very attentive & well organised.
She took care of us very well. She kept asking us if we were doing good during the long day trip.
The places we visited were very beautiful with breathtaking view.
Not forgetting the barbequed/rotisserie lamb we had at the Kovacevic R Restaurant in Jablanica.
It was delicious.
Highly recommended.

What an excellent day! Out of our two weeks in the balkans this was the highlight, a true sample of the warm bosnian hospitality i felt the genuine kindness our guide and driver were lovely so knowledgable and with an excellent sense of humour, nothing was too much trouble any photo stops were added with no trouble. Now the tour itself, the places and scenery were outstanding the countryside in this country is breathtaking, i would suggest to get here before tourist numbers increase which they are undoubtably doing. Arna and our driver thank you so so much for everything we were so well looked after and you both represent your stunning country so well.

Going with MeetBosnia and our guide Armina for this day trip to the B&H countryside from Sarajevo. This was a 5 star experience, we visited both a more well-known places like Mostar, but also hidden gems out in the countryside where there were very few tourists. The nature all around us was stunning, the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Recommend this trip to everyone!

I did this tour with my daughters, and we all thoroughly enjoyed the whole day, all 12 hours! Our guide was Humza, and for each area, he gave us background information, and we had enough time to explore. He was informative and answered any questions we had. I would recommend anyone to use Meet Bosnia as it was an excellent company!

I usually zone out during the history talk, but I really enjoyed all of it. The sights are all not to be missed, loved the waterfalls and Mostar was very beautiful I will always remember this trip – Highly recommend.
