Journey to Blagaj
Journey to Blagaj
📸 Our virtual journey to the Most Beautiful Villages of Bosnia and Herzegovina starts from the south, by the Buna River in Blagaj, known as a unique gem of the Herzegovina region. Discover why Blagaj is among the top 14 villages awarded the title of the Most Beautiful Village in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
📜 In medieval Bosnian documents, Blagaj is mentioned in charters of Bosnian kings and Roman sources on March 1, 1423.
According to a folk legend, a group of dervishes missionaries arrived and paused near the village of Kamena, observing a landscape full of nakedness and brass. Upon reaching the ancient town of Blagaj, within the fortress, they were presented with a breathtaking panorama of Bišće Polje, the meandering Buna River leading to the Neretva, and people from nearby mountains herding livestock to the water streams.
🏺 At that moment, they exclaimed that everything they had witnessed along their journey was like rocky land, except for this place, which they deemed as a treasure, a treasure-filled oasis.
🔝 In addition to its rich history and culture, Blagaj has a diverse tourist offer:
🚴 ♀️ Cycling
🚣 ♀️ Canoeing and kayaking
🧗 Via Ferrata and Climbing Festival
🍒 Production of fresh domestic fruits and vegetables
🏅 There may be a reason why Blagaj was selected on the list of the most beautiful villages of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The weekend is ahead of us and let this be your destination for vacation!
