Visit Počitelj as most preserved Ottoman town in Bosnia and Herzegovina, before we taste the finest Herzegovinian wines* in region of Čitluk. *Wine tasting can be replaced with local lunch as alternative.

What to Expect
DAY 1: Sarajevo > Konjic > Jablanica > Blagaj > Mostar

Morning ride will take us through interesting suburbs of Sarajevo and areas of central Bosnia until we pass Ivan mountain and enter Herzegovina region. As soon as in Herzegovina, we’ll start descending, as region of Herzegovina is generally on lower altitudes and is totally different climate, so you’ll notice dramatic natural environment change.

STOP 1: Konjic (30min)

First stop of the day is visit to old part of Konjic town. Unique, prehistorically inhabited, famous for 17th century 6-arch Old Bridge, looming over turquoise Neretva river, usually very sunny place, is day’s perfect start. Standing at WW2’s last day, during the Nazi withdrawal, destroyed bridge, we learn the story of the “monument to human stupidity”, mystery of Tito’s Bunker, famousness of white water rafting at upper Neretva region and glacier Boracko Lake, and few other stories before we visit Tito’s Bunker.

Konjic Old Bridge with Green Neretva River and Old Town of Konjic

STOP 2: Tito’s Bunker (1.30h)

In the early 1950s, Josip Broz Tito, the late leader of the former Yugoslavia, ordered the building of a secret bunker that would safeguard the country’s ruling class in case of a nuclear attack.

Located 900 feet (270 m) underground, town of Konjic, the 26-year project was only completed in 1979, the year before Tito died, and it was built at a cost equivalent to just under £3 billion ($4.6 billion).

If restocked with supplies it would still serve its purpose – allowing 350 people to live and work for six months without ever coming outside.

More about this place you see here.

STOP 3: Jablanica (30min) – Battle on Neretva Story

Ride continues by passing large, dammed but very beautiful Jablaničko lake, with short stop at Jablanica where we learn WW2 story of “Neretva Battle” and “sniff” into the way how our greatest delicacy, famous roasted lamb on the spit is made.

Views of Jablaničko lake and regions of Prenj mountain are simply breathtaking and will make you wanna stop and breathe those in.

Pass by:

  • Jablaničko Lake and Neretva river canyon (possible short stop for amazing photos)

STOP 4: Blagaj Dervish House & Buna River Spring (2h)

Blagaj town is home to Buna river spring – Europe’s most beautiful, most powerful, clean and drinkable karst river spring, settled beneath few hundred meters high rock. Water comes out of quite large but stunningly deep cave, which springs amazing 43 cubic meters of water per second. Can you imagine this?

Just next to the spring, under the rock, is home to Blagaj Tekke – Dervish house, dating most likely pre or early Ottoman era from early 16th century, as unique sacral-residential example of Islamic architecture in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Visiting this complex and learning more about Dervish life in Herzegovina as important part of our history is, MUST DO.
For Muslim travelers “Tekija” is place where prayers are hosted 5 times a day and can be attended if wanted.

Later, after visit to “Blagajska Tekija” and “Izvor rijeke Bune” before we continue to our ride to Dubrovnik, it is time for lunch. Due to famousness and cleanliness of Buna river the most important thing to taste in Blagaj today, is local trout. Lunch is not included in the tour price, so plan to spend 8/10 EUR per person for great lunch. As mentioned earlier, depending on the tour pace, alternatively lunch can be planned at Jablanica (Stop 3) where you get to taste famous Bosnian roasted lamb.

That is why we don’t leave the place before we offer our guests to try locally prepared trout on “Blagaj Way”, enjoying amazing scenery of Buna river spring and Dervish house next to it. Vegetarians don’t worry, we have solutions for you as well 🙂

Story of Mostar will be about the Bridge, it’s rise and fall, and how it had risen again. You will learn about Siege of Mostar, about why it is called Mostar, about “Mostarians”. We recreate Mostar for you and with you.

Spending a night in Mostar and enjoying this gem in the late evenings when all the crowds are gone is simply amazing. Free time, or dinner on your own or with us 🙂

Mostar Old Bridge in the evening
Mostar Old Bridge in the evening
Mostar by Nobel Prize winner, Ivo Andric
 
“When a man spends a night in Mostar, it is not the sound that awakes him, but the light. I know that from experience. The light I was greeted upon arrival at Mostar, the light I was followed from morning to evening, and later, after departure, the light remained within me, as the main characteristic of my memories of Mostar. I’ve always felt that what shines over this nature privileged city, and the way it permeates everything within, is some sort of remarkable light, extraordinary in strength and quality. I’ve always thought, this way (light) is the way the love for life, courage, cheerfulness, a sense of proportion and creative work, enters man’s life.
I could never have enough of it, even though I was met everywhere. It is within laughter of people, within clear vowels of their speech, in the faces of boys and girls at the evening walks. It is refracted as gold, restless gleam within the glass of Mostar Zilavka (wine), and lives as a compressed strength and sweetness in these peaches and cherries. It hides in shady, cool waters of Radobolja. And upon it, Neretva is our brightest river, and upon it, bare karst surrounding hills have some sort of unrestrained grandeur. Upon that light I remember Mostar the best.” 
DAY 2: Mostar > Počitelj > Kravice Waterfalls > Medjugorje > Radimlja > Vjetrenica Cave > Dubrovnik

As soon as light upon wakes you up, in your beautiful Mostar hotel and after delicious breakfast it is time for some morning free activities on your own. We usually give some free time to our guests when in Mostar to explore town on your own and discover some nice spots, which are sufficient all around.

STOP 6: Počitelj Town (1h)

After departing from Mostar very soon we ll arrive to Počitelj

Stunningly nested above Neretva river, visit to Počitelj (“Počivati” – Bos.”to rest in peace”), easy uphill, one hour long walking activity, accompanied with a stories of town’s development and strategic importance during its 600+ year long written history and visit to most important sites such as Hajji Alija Mosque, Clock Tower and Gavrankapetanović tower, IS A MUST, for anyone passing through or near Herzegovina region.

Unique, medieval, Ottoman era glorified, present day Ottoman-Mediterranean style “architectured” fortress – town Počitelj, is one of the very few urban ensembles in Bosnia and Herzegovina preserved in their integrity to the present times.

STOP 7: Kravica Waterfalls near Ljubuški (1h)

STOP 8: Radimlja Necropolis (UNESCO)

After West Herzegovina, time to move more south and visit interesting area of East Herzegovina and the next stop is World famous site – Radimlja necropolis near Stolac – UNESCO World Heritage site.

Stećci are one of the biggest mysteries of Bosnia and Herzegovina history.

Appearing in the mid 12th century, with the first phase in the 13th century, the tombstones reached their peak in the 14th and 15th century, before disappearing during the Ottoman occupation in the very early 16th century.

Most frequent dilemmas are focused on questions of their origin, the origin of the deceased who were buried under them,  and as well as the symbolic messages carved on them.

STOP 9: Vjetrenica Cave and Zavala Monastery (1h)

Vjetrenica (eng.”wind cave”) is the largest and most important cave in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and one of the most interesting caves in the Dinaric Alps mountain range.

The cave has been explored to a total of about 7 km in length but is assumed to be around 20 km and as it is known, is the richest cave in the world in terms of subterranean biodiversity. Proteus anguinus (human fish), amazing stalactite and stalagmite decorations are simply to amazing to miss out, so that is why Vjetrenica is also one of Herzegovina must sees.

Just next to the cave, last spot of the day will be visit to Zavala Monastery. Amazingly nested in the hills above stunning Popovo Field this 15th century Orthodox monastery is great way to learn and understand why this seemingly dry and uninhabited areas through the history have always been great source of different religious stories.

Group Traveller

Mostar and Bosnia-Herzegovina is a must see place to visit.

We were a group of 8 and spent 4 weeks touring the Balkan’s, and our 2 day tour to Mostar was amazing and the highlight of our trip. Our driver and tour guide Saud was fantastic, so knowledgeable about the history of the people and the area and he was also an excellent driver. We all felt very comfortable and safe. With 2 days we were only able to scratch the surface. We saw the Village of Pocitelj which is a hidden gem, stopped at Kravica Falls that we’re beuatiful and then had a wonderful wine tasting at a local Herzegovina winery before stopping at Mostar for the night. It is a must place to see and visit. The next day we visited Blagaj and toured the famous Blagaj Tekke, we then went to Radimlja necropolis and ancient capital of a Hellenised Illyrian – Daorson and finished with a visit to Tvrdos Monastery- 15th-century Serbian Orthodox monastery. This was a wonderful tour and Bosnia-Herzegovina is a very beautiful country and we all came away wanting to see more. Thank you Ema and Sarajevo Funky Tours for showing us your country. We all want to come back to see more and everyone one in our group would highly recommend Sarajevo Funky Tours and especially Saud as a guide to anyone. Best 2 day tour ever.
