After picking you up at the pre-arranged meeting point or at your hotel, we’ll begin our journey to Bosnia and Herzegovina. On our way to ancient Ottoman city of Mostar we will stop in the walled town of Pocitelj, UNESCO World Heritage site, a place that will intrigue you even more to discover the history of the Otoman city of Mostar. In Mostar our local city guide introduces you to the great history of this city known as “the window to the Orient”. We’ll visit the Old Bazaar, full of picturesque shops and craft workshops, and the Mosque. Afterwards, we’ll enjoy a walk along the famous Unesco – protected Old bridge from the 16th C. You’ll have plenty of free time for shopping and the opportunity to taste some authentic Bosnian specialties like cevapi, pita or burek. Then it’s off to experience the beauty of Bosnia and Herzegovina on our way to our final destination, one of the most-visited pilgrimage centers in all of Europe – Medjugorje. For believers and those who are looking for spiritual renewal, the most compelling site here is the Mount of Appearance where Virgin Mary is reported to have appeared to children in 1981 for the first time. Our tour guide will help you understand and appreciate why this place of peace and compassion has become such a world-wide destination for pilgrims. As an option, you may also enjoy some wonderful swimming in the nearby Kravice waterfalls. (depending on weather conditions). After this beautiful experience we return back to Split.
