Herzegovina is a country of great natural wonders, rivers rich with water and mix of cultures all living under the same sky! Take the tour with us and get acquainted with the lifestyle of people of Mostar – a city of Muslims and Christians living on a different bank of River Neretva, connected by Old Mostar bridge but divided by river Neretva and strong ideologies deeply embedded in both nations.
We start our tour from Dubrovnik and after driving alongside Adriatic coast we cross border with Bosnia and Herzegovina within 1,5 hours drive (do not forget your passports) at Metkovic and in 10 min time we reach the city of Pocitelj, old Dubrovnik Republic trade outpost on Neretva River and later a Turkish Muslim enclave (still well preserved).
After a stroll alongside cobbled streets of Pocitelj and having climbed Pocitelj’s stone watch tower we continue to Mostar. You will be presented with the overall political and historical events that led to building of the Old Bridge as well as Muslim Turk Mosque and Čaršija (main street, still preserved in original 15.ct state).
You will have a chance to try Turkish style black coffee alongside Neretva River or to have lunch of selected Bosnian (Herzegovinan) specialties (Čevapčići u somunu– minced meet in Pita bread with cream and onion) in family owned traditional restaurants.
After free time we can stop (optional) at the source of River Buna (fastest river flow at its spring in Europe), and Dervish Tekija (house of medieval Muslim Dervishes’ prayer and contemplation. After Buna we continue towards Dubrovnik, stopping along the road at your preferences.
We usually answer in less then 6 hours.
