Mostar & Herzegovina tour
What to expect
During your stay in Split, it would be a shame not to visit our beautiful neighboring country that has a lot to offer. Since it is not that far away from Split you can organize some free time for one day to do some exploring. We offer our help to make your life easier and give you the opportunity to explore as much as you can in the given time. Our excursion starts in Split, more precisely at our agency (Maruliceva 4). Our friendly guide will welcome you there and embark on this beautiful adventure with you. The drive lasts for a bit more than 3 hours.
Firstly you will go through Počitelj, a charming Bosnian village that used to be an Ottoman city. A breathtaking style of architecture on a steep cliff really captivates you. You can still feel a strong oriental culture since the city had been under siege for over 450 years. A rare fusion of the oriental East and the medieval West in Europe attracts the views of all the passers-by. The tower that still guards the narrow passage nearby the Neretva River, on its way from the sea to the interior, had already been a 550-year-old historical guard of this area and people. The famous city mosque that had once been destroyed was afterwards restored to its old glory.
After Počitelj, we go to the highlight of the tour and the jewel of Hercegovina, the town of Mostar. It is the most important town in the Herzegovina region, because it is considered to be its cultural and economic capital. There you will be greeted by a local English-speaking guide who will take you on an hour-long tour of the town. You will have an opportunity to hear about the rich history of the town, see the Old Bridge (which is on the list of the protected cultural heritage sites of UNESCO since 2005 together with the old town) dating back to the 16th century. The architecture of the place represents a symbol of tolerance: a shared life between Muslims, Christians, and Jews. The bridge combines the two religiously divided parts of the town, the Christian and Muslim. After the tour, you will have two and a half hours of free time. You can get lost in the famous bazaar and see the heritage of the oriental culture while buying something to remember this day by. You will see The Turkish house (Kajtaz) and Koskin-Mehmed Pasha’s Mosque. If you are a history buff, you can visit the Museum Of Crimes Against Humanity And Genocide 1992-1995 to learn about the dark side of its history.
The last stop on our tour will be the wonderful Kravica waterfalls or Medjugorje sanctuary. For the Park of nature Kravice, you have an hour and a half. Its most famous cascade is called Kravica waterfall and is protected by the state as a natural rarity. The best part about it is that you can find the necessary refreshments there during those hot summer months. It is called “The Oasis in the stone”. The Medjugorje sanctuary is a popular catholic pilgrimage site due to Our Lady of Medjugorje. In 1981 years, She appeared in front of six local children.
