Day tour in Bosnia from Mostar
Pick up from your Mostar hotel by your private car and driver and English-speaking local guide, and drive around half an hour to Blagaj, a Dervish monastery, a tekija, that was built by the sultan in 1520 next to the source of the Buna River. Here you can try a turkish coffee or sip tea in the garden as you admire the river gushing from a mountainside. Continue to Pocitelj, a charming oriental town around half an hour from Blagaj. Pocitelj grew up surrounded by defensive walls as it occupied a strategic location on the river, and inside these walls are the fortress, bazaar, baths and inns, the madrassa and mosque, soup kitchen, school and houses – a complete town that has been carefully restored since the war. It is particularly noted for its artists who come here from all around the world who appreciate both the quaintness of the town and the natural beauty of its surroundings. If you are feeling energetic you can climb the hundred-odd steps up the tower for panoramic views of the town and countryside before heading to the village of Buna where you take lunch at a riverside inn. Return to your hotel in Mostar by car.
