Despite its seemingly inhospitable environment, southern Herzegovina is the land of tobacco and wine. Historically, its been part of important trading routes between the inland and the coast, which means it has a rich an colourful history which we’ll be able to explore in this tour.
We depart Mostar in the morning and travel south.
Our first stop is in Radimlja, one of the biggest and most important necropolae of „stećak“ monuments (medieval tombstones characteristic for this area). Here we have a chance to learn about these unusual and mysterious remnants of local medieval civilization.
We then move on toward Trebinje, the southernmost town in Herzegovina. However, before we get there we make a stop at the Tvrdoš monestary. This monastery, dated back to the 14th century, is famous not only because it’s one of the oldest and most important orthodox monestaries in the country, but also because of their famed wine cellars. So, we not only visit a truly interesting religious site, but also take some time to do a wine tasting. Then we continue our trip and arrive in Trebinje, the southernmost, and one of the most interesting towns in Herzegovina. We meet our local guide who takes us for a lovely walking tour of the town, followed by free time for lunch and individual exploration, and we return to Mostar in the afternoon.
