The series of waterfalls at Kravice are nestled in a natural reserve southwest of the city of Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. River Trebizat is plunging from cliffs as high as 83 feet into a natural watery amphitheater that is 500 feet across. The stunning mini-Niagara of 25m cascades itself into a dramatic and steamy fury. During the summer, surrounding pools become shallow enough for swimming.
Although Kravice falls are incredibly impressive, the area is still void of mass-tourism infrastructure. There’s an ample car park and coffee shop at the entry to the park and a boardwalk which takes you to the base of the falls. Here you can swim, sunbath or take a picnic.
Before you arrive to Kravice waterfall, you will have a short tour of Mostar and visit its Old Bridge. Also, on the way back to Sarajevo, take a break and a short tour in Pocitelj, a city dating from Ottoman period. Pocitelj represents one of the few urban ensembles in Bosnia that were preserved in their integrity to the present times. In year 1996, World Monuments Watch named Pocitelj as one of the world’s 100 most endangered cultural heritage sites.
