On the foothills of Velez mountain, 15 kilometers in the East far from Mostar, there is Podvelezje. The village of Podvelezje provides access to a remarkable collection of high mountain recreation experiences and spectacular vistas. For centuries it has been home to highland shepherds and a traditional way of life. The landscape is harsh arid karst dotted with small forests of beech and oak trees. Podveležje has even more sunny days than Mostar. Situated 700m above sea level it is a pleasant escape during the hot summer nights and an ideal place for walking, mountain biking, medicinal herb picking and challenging treks to Velež’s highest peak at 1,980m. Here one can witness many of the old methods of traditional life including sheep shearing, milk, cheese and butter production, honey-making, meat drying and wool sewing.

In 1979, the city of Dubrovnik joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. The ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’, situated on the Dalmatian coast, became an important Mediterranean sea power from the 13th century onwards. Although severely damaged by an earthquake in 1667, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. Damaged again in the 1990s by armed conflict, it is now the focus of a major restoration programme co-ordinated by UNESCO.
Lunch in the city and in the late afternoon, return to Mostar. Dinner and overnight in Mostar.
Sarajevo is a true link between East and West, its location in the central Balkans has kept Sarajevo in the crosshairs of world history. In 1914 it made global headlines when the Austrian Archduke was assassinated on its street, sparking World War I. There’s also a long history of religious tolerance which explains the close proximity of the mosques, synagogues and orthodox and Catholic churches.
Every visitor is drawn to the magic of a spring with crystal clear cold water rising under the Igman Mountain which is the Bosna River Spring. The area is an exquisite natural heritage with hot springs floating into the river. This spring rising at the foot of Igman, was arranged as a park during the Austro-Hungarian period. The concept has been kept.
Effluents and banks are connected with bridges which extend into narrow paths. Water-gates and damns formed small lakes for fish and swans. Weekends and holidays bring many visitors who prepare barbecues, while children play and some even take a bath. Visitors enjoy taking long walks around numerous lakes, islands and walking paths. They are also drawn to beautiful and tamed swans that are fed bread by visitors.
This is a gathering place where many families can spend time in a natural setting of the Bosna River Spring during the summer season. Many visitors also take a coach – ride along the plane and horse chestnut tree alley.
