Overview

Follow Croatia’s stunning Adriatic coastline across the border to Bosnia and Herzegovina, where nature’s genius and history’s ruins are on full display.

The town of Neum is the only coastal bastion in a mostly landlocked country, blessed with clear waters, sprawling wilderness, and ethereal views of mountains.

Visit the largest city in the agricultural heartland of the Neretva Delta and climb up the old stone steps in the ghostly town of Pocitelj, once a medieval center of administration.

Travel to the proud city of Mostar and traverse the great 16th century bridge for which the city is named.

Itinerary

You will be picked up from your Dubrovnik hotel for this Mostar Sightseeing Tour.

Drive along the Adriatic coastline towards Bosnia and Herzegovina, awestruck at tall pines scaling limestone cliffs and diminutive islands poking up from a clear blue sea.

Cross over into Bosnia and Herzegovina, with short but memorable stops in several picturesque towns.

Disembark at Neum, the only town on Bosnia and Herzegovina’s short stretch of Adriatic coastline, admiring the red roofs and crystal waters that gesture towards spectral mountains.

Pause for a moment in Metkovic, nestled in the lush and biologically diverse Neretva delta, and only a stone’s throw from the ancient Roman settlement of Narona.

Walk along the stone ruins of Pocitelj, an ancient fortified city built by Bosnia's King Stjepan Tvrtko I in the 14th century.

Arrive in Mostar, your destination for the day, where you are treated to a sightseeing tour of this beautiful low-lying town, which is looked after on all sides by the mountain of Herzegovina.

The highlight of the tour is a trip to the Old Bridge, the pride of Mostar, which was built by visionary Ottoman architect Mimar Hajrudin at a time when no one thought the Neretva River could be spanned with stone.

The bridge was destroyed during the Bosnian war, but has been faithfully rebuilt by the people of Mostar, who have rallied behind their reputation as “the bridge keepers” across the ages.

You will make another brief stop in lovely Neum before you are returned to you hotel in Dubrovnik.
