This picturesque monastery at the base of a cliff is a peaceful oasis open to all visitors. The modest, Ottoman-era building sits at the base of an enormous cliff, where the Buna river seeps out from a mysterious cave and over a small crescent waterfall as it courses towards the larger Neretva.
Mostar Old Town
The historic town of Mostar, spanning a deep valley of the Neretva River, developed in the 15th and 16th centuries as an Ottoman frontier town and during the Austro-Hungarian period in the 19th and 20th centuries. Mostar has long been known for its old Turkish houses and Old Bridge, Stari Most, after which it is named.
The Stari Most in Mostar rises 20 meters above the cold waters of the Neretva River. For centuries, a rite of passage for local men was to dive off the bridge into the river.
The spectacular Kravice Waterfall is one of Europe’s best-kept natural secret. The waterfalls themselves are about 25m high (80 feet), and they are becoming ever more popular year by year as the word gets out.
Sarajevo Old Town
The capital of Sarajevo sits nestled in the valley of Bosnia and is surrounded by the Dinaric Alps. What’s extra wonderful is that because the city isn’t hugely built up you can wander around and see the mountains all around you. It’s also easy to walk up some of the smaller hills for an amazing view of the city and surrounding landscape.
