Sarajevo: 1-Way to Mostar with Konjic, Blagaj, and Pocitelj

2. Sarajevo: 1-Way to Mostar with Konjic, Blagaj, and Pocitelj

Your tour will begin as you are picked up from your accommodation. After a brief introduction and having received a bottle of water, it will be time to start your journey. The first stop of the day is a short visit to Konjic, a unique, prehistorically inhabited place from which Herzegovina starts. It is famous for a 17th-century 6-arch old bridge, and makes for a perfect introduction to the emerald-green Neretva River. Your journey then continues towards the restaurant famous for its homemade Pita (pie), that will satisfy both the vegetarians and omnivores in the group. With a full stomach, you will continue towards the beautiful Medieval and Ottoman stone-constructed fortified village of Počitelj. Upon your arrival, you will take an easy hike towards the Kula, a silo-shaped fort overlooking the village from the top of the hill. It used to house watchmen and military, as a guard against possible intrusions from the Neretva Valley. Following a short hike, you will continue your way to Blagaj. Situated at the spring of the Buna River (Europe’s most powerful, clean and drinkable river spring), Blagaj is settled beneath a few hundred meters of rocks and 16th-century tekke (tekija or Dervish monastery). Tekke or Dervish monastery is the unique sacral-residential example of Islamic architecture in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and was built with elements of Ottoman architecture and Mediterranean influence. One of the nicest parts of your journey will be spent on the bank of River Buna, just a few kilometers away from Blagaj. You will dine under the shade while listening to the sound of the river, and it is recommended to try a local trout followed by the traditional desert called “smokvara”. Following your nice meal, it will be time for the highlight of your journey, the city of Mostar. Mostar has long been known for its old Turkish houses and its Old Bridge, Stari Most, after which it was named. The historic part of Mostar is a result of the interaction between natural phenomena and human creativity throughout a long historical period. The architecture here presented a symbol of tolerance: a shared life of Muslims, Christians, and Jews. Mostar will be the last stop of your experience, and at the conclusion of your tour you will be dropped off in Mostar.

This was one of the best trips I have ever been on. Edis is the most knowledgeable, witty, caring guide you could ever meet. He went over and beyond to regale me many interesting and personal stories. I have been so looking forward to visiting Sarajevo since reading the novel 'The Cellist of Sarajevo' which was so beautifully descriptively written- Edis made this very personal, his father's experience of being shelled during the war his subsequent recovery and his massive efforts to be forgiving and reconcillary ....what a guy and what a son! Both are a force for good in this world. I'm humbled and proud that I was able to spend time you and learn first hand 'The Cellist of Sarajevo'

Very informative and enjoyable tour

The tour took us through beautiful scenery with several places to stop-off, take photographs and enjoy the surroundings at our leisure. Our guide, Safet, was very knowledgeable about Bosnian history and culture as well as being helpful and considerate. A great way to travel from Sarajevo to Mostar and we would highly recommend this tour.

We had an amazing experience with these guys! They came to pick us up in the morning, and explained everything during the trip. It's the most efficient way to cross the border, hands down. We were so happy, that we also booked a tour with them the following day.

Amazing and beautiful day You are not only going to explore just the most beautiful landscape and nature of Bosnia. You are also going to know everything about Bosnia's history which is MUST to know. I gurante everyone who joins this trip will have a fantastic day

I really enjoyed the tour, natural scenery, historical sight, old cozy town, and so on. One way to Mostar was a good plan for me. Our guide, Mustafa was really good.
