Take time for a stop and enjoy it

A little historic village made of stone situated at a beautiful valley and in the hillside. Take time and do a little walk along the alley.

It is a fortress town from centuries past, built into the curve of a hill, protectively nestled in its stony embrace. Like a scene out of LOTR or some fantasy drawings, we see walled fortifications built along the ridge, towers built for battles, rising high to rain down hell on enemies below. The medieval ruins, jagged walls and broken arches... More

One of those small towns that takes you way back in time and with your feet planted.......you know you're in the real Bosnia. Over 1,000 years old, this small stone village gives you a real feeling of history. Visitors are warmly welcomed here, but keep in mind you'll need a car or take a small local tour from Mostar. This... More

This is a beautiful medieval town a short drive away from Mostar worthwhile visiting. It is like traveling through time, one can see the old houses with their peculiar roofs made of flat stones and the city walls although not all of it is well kept.

If you like a climb then this will keep you busy for a couple of hours. Interesting old place again worth spending time wandering around.

Amazing atmosphere. Take a hike to the old tower and follow the windy paths to the Pasha platform for a great view. Super scenic site and well worth the time and effort to stop by. We spent an hour and a half there and enjoyed it a lot.

Had a 30 min stop at Pocitelj on a day trip to Mostar from Dubrovnik. The small town has some great history and buildings including Turkish baths, mosque (cost of entrance EUR1.50), bell tower. There appears to be no effort at present to protect and preserve these lovely buildings and they desperately need some TLC to ensure they are able... More

The town is not too great. We didnt even feel like stopping our car (was getting a bit late). But didnt feel so special. It is on your way to Mostar and thus can be a stop if you have alot of time.
