Herzegovina is the southern and smaller of the two main geographical regions of Bosnia and Herzegovina.  The scenery was beautiful and this was the area where I fell in love with Bosnian Figs!

Old Stone Bridge in Konjic

The Old Stone Bridge in Konjic has connected the banks of the Neretva River since 1682.  It is considered the place where Bosnia and Herzegovina join together.

Kravice Waterfalls

The 25m high Kravice Waterfall is located on the Trebizat River.  A stunning location to picnic and swim.

The view was breathtaking.

Bosnian FIGS!  These were so very, very good.  There were a couple women selling these as I walked up to the fortress.  I bought some on the way up and got more on the way down.

Blagaj Tekke

This Dervish Monastery was built around 1520 by the spring of the river Buna and is surrounded by mountains.  At the Tekke, I had to put on a wraparound skirt to cover my legs and wear a head covering while inside.
