Blagaj, City of Mostar

An oasis of peace and natural harmony, located on three rivers, is a place known for its rich cultural and historical heritage and natural beauty. One of the main attractions in Blagaj is the Old Town, which was the birthplace of Bosnian Queen Katarina Kosača-Kotromanić. The old town of Blagaj is one of the largest fortresses in the region, with impressive stone walls and typical medieval towers. From the top of the Old Town, visitors can enjoy a beautiful view of the River Buna and the surrounding landscape. Additional towers were built on the Old Town with the arrival of the Ottoman Empire, and from this period dates the Sultan Suleiman Mosque more than 500 years old. The heterogeneity of the Blagaj population throughout history is reflected in the active activities of three religious communities presented in places of worship that visitors will surely notice upon arrival at this tourist resort. Another popular attraction in Blagaj is the source of the Buna River, which is the largest source of clean and drinkable river in Europe, located under rocks several hundred meters high. Blagaj is the habitat of about 170 species of birds, and the climate favors the cultivation of Mediterranean crops such as strawberries, cherries, grapes, figs, peaches, apricots, pomegranates / pomegranates and kiwi. There are many restaurants serving traditional Bosnian food in the village, with fish restaurants particularly prominent. Cold Buna is ideal for growing the world-famous Californian trout, which is a specialty here. Next to the road there are many shops that sell local products such as honey, jam, dried figs and fresh fruit. Blagaj is an ideal place for visitors looking for a quiet holiday in beautiful nature, but also for those who want to explore cultural and historical sights and enjoy the rich gastronomic offer.
