From Sarajevo: Mostar and Cities of Herzegovina Day Tour

1. From Sarajevo: Mostar and Cities of Herzegovina Day Tour

The starting point is usually in front of Info Bosnia Tourist Information Center located on main pedestrian street Ferhadija, just next to "Sarajevo Meeting of Cultures", but can be arranged from elsewhere, if requested. The first stop of the day is a short visit to Konjic, a unique, prehistorically inhabited place from which Herzegovina originates. It is famous for its 17th century 6-arch Old Bridge and a perfect introduction to the emerald-green Neretva river. Your journey then continues towards a restaurant famous for its homemade Pita (pie) that will satisfy your taste!  With a full stomach, continue towards the beautiful medieval and Ottoman stone-constructed fortified village Počitelj. On your arrival, take an easy hike towards the Kula, a silo-shaped fort overlooking the village from the top of the hill. It was used to house watchmen and military as a guard against possible intrusions from the Neretva valley. After a short hike, continue your way to Blagaj. This city is situated at the source of the Buna river, Europe’s most powerful, clean and drinkable river spring. After Pocitelj enjoy lunch at the banks of river Buna just a few kilometers away from Blagaj. Under the shade of trees, listening to the sound of the river, enjoy a local trout with the traditional desert "smokvara". After a nice meal, it is time to visit the best part of your journey, the city of Mostar. Mostar has long been known for its old Turkish houses and Old Bridge. The historic part of Mostar is a result of interaction between the natural phenomena and human creativity throughout a long historical period. The architecture here presents a symbol of tolerance: a shared life of Muslims, Christians, and Jews. Focus at Mostar’s Old Bridge, Old Bazaar, and Old Town, and hear stories of Mostar’s uniqueness and cosmopolitan heritage. After Mostar it is time to say goodbye to Herzegovina. Head back to your accommodation in Sarajevo in just over 2 hours.

We had our tour guide Edis. From the beginning everything was punctual and on time.

We really enjoyed the whole day and got lots of beautiful photos during our trip. Edis provided us with specific spots to get the best pictures and also lots of recommendations on places to eat and things to see. Definitely recommend Edis on the Mostar tour!

A must do tour in Bosnia The places which this tour takes you believe me you can’t find on your own! This trip was educational since our guide is very knowledgeable about the history, ask for Eids when you book this trip. At the end you have to try the grilled lamb! Don’t forget to order the chops as well.
