Day 3: Počitelj - Hutovo Blato - Kravice Waterfalls
Today we discover Hercegovina, home of mixed cultures, many natural wonders and rivers rich with water. The medieval fortress village of Počitelj was built on a rocky cliff sloping steeply down to the bank of the river Neretva. Enjoy a walk through the old bazaar and admire the city's historical buildings, which make the village one of the most picture-perfect architectural ensembles in the country. Our next stop is Hutovo Blato Nature Park and bird reserve, a unique sub-Mediterranean swamp with plenty of water and home for hundreds of plant and animal species. Enjoy a private boat ride and admire this unique environment. We then continue to Kravice Waterfalls*, an area full of greenery with chaste trees, poplars and figs all around. Even the tough formations are green with thick lichen, moss and grass. There are hardly any man-made formations near the falls to interfere with the location’s complete natural environment. Return to Mostar for your overnight stay.
