The Historic Railroad Trail with steam locomotives passes from Mostar alongside Neretva river all the way across the border with Croatia, ending in Dubrovnik. The construction of this trail started in 1898 and ended in 1901. Today this trail is reconstructed into a cycling track, part of which we will pass today.
The excursion starts in Mostar, with the visit to the Old town itself. The most famous monument is the Old bridge which straddles the river Neretva, and is under UNESCO Protection.
From there we cycle to Blagaj, which is our next stop. This beautiful village-town is located some 12 km from Mostar at the spring of river Buna and a historic tekke (Dervish monestary). A short tour around the tekke is followed by lunch in one of the nearby restaurants. We continue our trip after a short break and make our way to Počitelj.
After a brief visit to the medieval town of Počitelj and its historic monuments, the trip continues in the direction of Mogorjelo. Mogorjelo is a Roman villa rustica that dates from the early 4th centure. It is situated on a hill off the Neretva tributary, some 5 km south of Čapljina, next to the road to Gabela.
Lastly, after the visit to this unique archaeological monument we are ending our tour in Čapljina, the town in the south of Herzegovina located some 20km away from Adriatic sea.
The day ends with a 30 minute transfer back to Mostar.
