Herzegovina Classics in a Day Tour from Mostar

In a country so rich in historical and natural heritage, it is next to impossible to decide which places deserve your full attention. So let us do it for you. This tour offers you the best of the region. Walking under the cliffs of Blagaj towards the 16th century Islamic monastery by the cool Buna river will show you some of the world's most spectacular sceneries. Same goes for the tranquility of Orthodox monastery in Žitomislići. There, one can learn on religion as much as on sacred art. Narrow and winding streets of Počitelj lead its visitors to the medieval castle dominating the Neretva valley. But one should also stop and take a rest in the shade of fig trees enjoying freshly squeezed fruit juices Počitelj is known for. The pearl of Herzegovina, Kravice cascades, are as much visual as hedonistic experience. Spectacular vista of the cascades surely invites you to take a leap in the cool waters of Trebižat river during a hot summer's day.
