Mostar and Kravica Excursion from Dubrovnik
Rugged nature and rich cultural history, coastline and border crossing three times before we reach Pocitelj, 15th century town, where we have half hour break. Our main destination is Mostar, a city renowned for its cultural and religious variety and, sadly, violent history. Walk the iconic Mostar bridge, which gave city its name, (“most” is Croatian for “bridge”) and still separates the Muslim and Christian sides of town. Tour the Koski Mehmed Pasa Mosque, buy souvenirs at the famous Bazar, and enjoy a delicious Bosnian tradition called cevapi for lunch. A few short kilometers from Mostar lies the magnificent karstic spring Blagaj where we will visit a sixteenth-century “tekija”, or Dervish Monastery. On the way back to Dubrovnik we will have a visit to the karstic phenomenon - Kravica waterfalls. This hidden gem is like a smaller version of Plitvice, but without the huge crowds. You can even swim in the lake at the bottom of the falls, making it a perfect end to a relaxing day. Upon pick up at your accommodation/cruise ship, our minibus with guide will take you on unique journey into land of cultural diversities. 2h 30min drive will begin along coastal Adriatic road and you will enjoy view on Elaphiti and Peljesac peninsula before we cross Bosnian border. On the way to Mostar, which is first on our itinerary, short visit to Pocitelj is planned. Drive towards Mostar lasts 30min and we will pull over in west Mostar and from there we will take walk through the old town. During our 40min walk you will see “Kriva cuprija” small bridge, Old bridge and Koski Mehmed Pasa’s Mosque. After traditional lunch “cevapi”, an hour of free time for souvenirs picking on bazaar is planned before leaving Mostar. On departure from Mostar we have 30 min visit to Dervish house in Blagaj. On the way back to Dubrovnik we will have visit to the karstic phenomenon - Kravica waterfalls for 45 min.
