9. From Sarajevo: Mostar, Dervish House, Pocitelj and Waterfall
Embark on a magical journey through the historic highlights of Herzegovina. Depart from Sarajevo on a guided tour and explore ancient towns, beautiful waterfalls, and the world-famous Old Bridge of Mostar. Learn about the country's rich history and taste some traditional food.
Make your way to the first stop of the day: 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.
From Konjic, continue towards Kravica Falls, a favorite Herzegovinian picnic area and summer swimming spot. Admire the biggest and most beautiful waterfall in the country. During the summertime, jump into the water for a refreshing swim.
Move on to the medieval and Ottoman fortified village Počitelj. Take an easy hike towards the Kula, a silo-shaped fort overlooking the village from the top of the hill. Learn about the 15th-century tree that stands tall next to the minaret of the mosque.
After a short hike, continue your way to Blagaj, situated at the source of the Buna river. Enter the Dervish House and be amazed at the number of details and craftsmanship. Built at the site of the earlier Bogumil sanctuary in the 16th century, discover Tekke, the perfect spot to learn about the Sufi order.
Visit the city of Mostar, known for its old Turkish houses and Old Bridge. Gaze at the architecture, which presents a symbol of tolerance between Muslims, Christians, and Jews. Focus on Mostar’s Old Bridge, Old Bazaar, and Old Town, and hear stories of their heritage.
Enjoy an included meal of traditional Bosnian sandwiches, or a vegetarian alternative, before riding back to Sarajevo.
