Sarajevo – Mostar Tour

 

Herzegovina is a southern part of the country and represents sunny and warm part of the heart-shaped country. Driving from Sarajevo towards the South is experience for itself. The most of the road is just next to river Neretva so your journey can start with some beautiful photos. Warm climate, a lot of sunny days during the year and the scent of the seaside make Herzegovina different from the rest of the country. Herzegovina is famous by its lavender fields, grape cultivation, wine production and its UNESCO heritage.

 

This unique combination of the history, nature and culture makes Herzegovina and Mostar, as the central part, one of the most visited and  attractive destination in the Western Balkans.

 

Herzegovina is nestled in fantastic mixture of stone and the water with untamed wildness and beauty. Apart from Mostar, Herzegovina is also rich in other breathtaking points, such as: Buna spring, Kravice Waterfalls, Medjugorje, Pocitelj and Hutovo Blato just to name a few. Find out more about Herzegovina landmarks here.

 

Konjic

 

The trip includes a visit to Konjic, a small town on the way to Mostar. Even though it is small, Konjic has a lot of pleasures and stories to tell. Legend said that horse (konj) saved the old lady and became a stepping stone for building this beautiful town on Neretva. Therefore Konjic got its name. Another important story to hear is the story about the Old Stone Bridge in Konjic. The bridge was built in 1682 in the Ottoman style. It had 6 beautiful bends. The Bridge was destroyed during the World War II. After 66 years, it rose up again and has showed its beauty again! The bridge has been reconstructed in 2009 but  kept the same, original look. This bridge is much shorter than the one you are going to visit in Mostar city but very beautiful and breathtaking nevertheless.

 

Mostar

 

Highlight of the tour is the visit to Mostar and its Old Town. The Old Bridge in Mostar represents the greatest touristic attraction of Bosnia tourism. Would you like to hear the story about the city named Mostar? Here we are bringing to you a short piece of it. 

“Most” in Bosnian language means “bridge”. The Old Bridge, which represents the central part of the Mostar, was built during the Ottoman period. It represents typical architectural style of Ottoman period. In Bosnian language “mostar” means the man who is taking care and guards the bridge. And there begins the story about Mostar. Guardians where taking care not only of the Bridge day and night, but also of the two towers on each side. Towers named Halebija and Tara were used as weapon and ammo shelters during the Ottoman Period. Today they represent Museums worth seeing.

 

The Old Bridge stood for 427 years, until it was destroyed on 9 November 1993 by Croat paramilitary forces during the war in Bosnia. After the war, a project was set in motion to reconstruct it. Fully rebuilt bridge opened on 23 July 2004. Constructors dug the original stones from Neretva river and used them in reconstruction.

 

Bosnian war of 90’s left thousands of marks and scarfs, but the people of Mostar remained loyal to it and made the Old Bridge shine again. It became the muse and inspiration for many authors such as Aleksa Santic, famous Bosnian writer. He was particularly emotionally bounded with Mostar and beauty of the city. Besides numerous fantastic natural and historical spots, Mostar will offer you great shopping experience. Its Old Town is crawling with numerous antique, craft and souvenir shops.

 

Blagaj

 

On our Sarajevo to Mostar tour, you will also visit Blagaj. Blagaj a small village raised in the middle of untouched nature. It is placed on the very source of river Buna. This small village has been built during the Roman Empire Period. As the time passed by, the village has grown to be one of the most cherished landmarks in Herzegovina region. What makes Blagaj even more special is probably the most mysterious building – Tekija – Dervish House. It was built by the order of Ottoman Sultan during the Ottoman period of rule in Bosnia & Herzegovina.

 

Dervish House and Blagaj are definitely going to amaze you and leave you speechless. During Ottomans period, Tekija served to Dervishes for their rituals. Later on it was used as a shelter for passengers who were on the road and were dealing with different branches of trading towards the South. The source of the river Buna coming from the cave represents a sight to behold. Crystal and clear water above Dervish House and the story about Blagaj will surely fulfill the tour experience. To fully enjoy the beauty of this place we recommend a lunch in local restaurants. Restaurants are located on the Buna river banks and they serve some of the best fish in the country. 

 

To explore the heart of Herzegovina, take a day tour with Invicta TravelⓇ  and bring unforgettable memories back home with you.

I have all the good words in my mind for our guide.

He is so awesome introducing us to the wonders of Bosnia.

Safet is not the Usual guide who would bring tourist to touristy places but more of the local interesting places to visit and local food and delights.

A wonderful guide with experiences.

We are blessed to have him.

Bravo!

Although we booked late for the tour of Herzegovina, the Invicta travel team brought the whole tour organization to the perfection. From the very beginning, the pleasant communication and accuracy (CEO Mirza & his team) suggested that we are at the right place for the adventure. Knowledge of the history of the places we visited (Konjic, Jablanica, Mostar, Blagaj) guide Sakib kept us all the way,wake and eager of new knowledge.

To my friends,to whom this was the first time to visit Bosnia and Herzegovina and me this was a refreshing experience because we came from Sarajevo at temperatures of 32 ° C to the phenomenal Blagaj at a pleasant 18 ° C.Only problem on the tour was that one portion of the delicious fish was not enough for us, we had to simply stay longer 🙂

We had the feeling that we experienced three days in only one.

Thank You for everithing Invicta team and see You guys again soon.

Choose this company if you want a day trip to see Mostar and the surroundings. I had my own guide who picked me up at the hotel. The guide Admir was really nice and friendly. He was dedicated and it was so interesting listening to him and we had some great conversations!

Our guide, Mr Admir, was very informative and knowledgeable about his country. We learned so much from him. He was also very patient; my parents needed a lot of support when walking through the old towns and he always waits for us patiently.

He’s always friendly and chatting with my father throughout the car rides, and giving us a lot of informative tidbits around the 3 towns.

We hope we get him again as our guide if we go back Bosnia.

Guida preparata, professionale e cordiale. Però sul vostro sito era assicurato un “veicolo moderno e confortevole “, mentre abbiamo fatto il tour ( circa 300km) con una piccola utilitaria e nemmeno troppo pulita. Andrebbe specificato che non siete in grado di garantire la qualità del mezzo. Per il resto tutto ok.
