  1. Neretva River with its natural beauty and unique ecological system.
  2. Historic city of Konjic situated on the banks of the Neretva River.

  1. The Neretva River is one of the most beautiful rivers in this part of Europe and one of the symbols of Herzegovina. It is 225 km long and for the most part flows through Bosnia-Herzegovina (203 km), and partly through Croatia (22 km). Situated between the major regional rivers (Drina river on the east, Una river on the west and the Sava river in the north) the Neretva basin contains the most significant source of drinking water. Its source and headwaters gorge are situated deep in the Dinaric Alps at the base of the mountains Zelengora and Lebršnik, under the Gredelj saddle. The river source is at 1,227 meters above sea level. Together with its tributaries, Neretva makes a special natural complex and unique ecological system in this part of the world. On its way to the Adriatic Sea, Neretva flows through some of the most beautiful places in Bosnia: Konjic, Jablanica, Mostar, Capljina, Pocitelj. Neretva River is known for its emerald-green color, clean and in its upper course completely safe drinking water.
  2. Konjic is a town located in northern Herzegovina, around 50 kilometers southwest of Sarajevo. It lies on the Neretva River in a mountainous, heavily wooded area. The city is one of the oldest permanent settlements in Bosnia, dating back almost 4.000 years. The symbol of Konjic is Old Bridge built in 1682 over six slightly pointed stone arches. It is the best-preserved Ottoman bridge in Bosnia and Herzegovina which is proclaimed a National Monument. Another highlight of Konjic is a tour of an original nuclear fallout shelter - Tito's 611 square-metre atomic bunker built between 1953 and 1979 and dug 300 meters into a mountain. Known as ARK it was built secretly by the government in which President Tito, the Yugoslav Government, and ruling elite would have been able to find shelter.
  3. The Boračko Lake is a glacier lake in Herzegovina located next to the town Konjic. It lies at the northeastern foot of the mountain Prenj, at an altitude of 397 m. The lake is 786m long, 402m wide and 17m deep. It receives water from Boračko streams and several nearby sources, which some of them are placed on the bottom of the lake. The short stream Sistica that flows out of the lake along a short gorge of 6 km and depth of 60 m crashes from 30 m hight as a waterfall into the Neretva River.
