Welcome to Hercegovina

Its arid Mediterranean landscape has a distinctive beauty punctuated by barren mountain ridges and photogenic river valleys. Famed for its fine wines and sun-packed fruits, Hercegovina is sparsely populated but has some intriguing historical towns and even has one little toehold on the Adriatic coast.

These days Western Hercegovina is dominated by Bosnian Croats while Eastern Hercegovina is part of the Republika Srpska. Bosniak Muslims maintain an uneasy position between the two, especially in the divided but fascinating city of Mostar. Not counting the Catholic pilgrims who flood Međugorje, Mostar is far and away Hercegovina's biggest tourist drawcard. Trebinje is lesser known but has an appealing old core.
