Full description
In 1996, Počitelj was added to the list of the world’s 100 most endangered cultural heritage sites, by the World Monuments Watch – so definitely worth a visit. Your tour includes a 45 minute walk of this fortified town which contains a few scattered homes and cafes, a beautiful mosque, a tower and a citadel, surrounded by the remains of a city wall. Then you're off to the Blagaj Tekija which was built around 1520, with elements of Ottoman and Mediterranean style architecture. It is a national monument. Blagaj Tekke is a monastery that was built for the Dervish cults and lets you make it come alive for you - a fascinating stop! Mostar is famous for the impressive Ottoman–style bridge spanning the Neretva river which was destroyed during the war in Bosnia and Hertzegovina but subsequently rebuilt. There are still poignant reminders of the legacy of that war in the street art and damaged buildings to be found around the city, but you will also be impressed by the wonderful spirit of local people and its dramatic beauty. The buzz of the local bazaar offers a great shopping opportunity and you might be lucky enough to witness daredevil diving from the bridge during the season. There are shopping and eating opportunities throughout!!
