Start your day early to leave the coast behind and travel through the hinterland of Dalmatia and Herzegovina in a perfectly comfortable air conditioned bus all the way to Medugorje. It will take you about three and a half hours to get there, so we suggest you sit back in your seat and enjoy the magnificent landscapes, which will be changing from the typical Dalmatian maritime-coastal to the typical rocky landscapes of Herzegovina.
Medugorje, the first stop on the tour, is best known for the apparition of Virgin Mary back in 1981 which made this little town a world known pilgrimage place. Use the three hours of free time to explore this sacred place on your own, enter the church, relax your body and mind. You can attend the Holy Mass or stretch your legs walking around the town or even challenge yourself to climb up the Apparition Hill. If you're hungry, you can taste some traditional food in one of the restaurants at your own expense or simply sit in the Garden of Contemplation to charge your batteries.
The tour continues to Mostar, an unforgettable small picturesque town on the river Neretva, famous for its Old Bridge from the 16th century which, metaphorically and geographically speaking, connects north with south and east with west. Mostar's oriental structured street and buildings are truly inspiring. Friendly locals, delicious food and excellent coffee will make your day in Mostar just perfect. Walking tour with the local guide will reveal to you every single corner of this city. The highlight of the walking tour will be a small show from the traditional diver club whose members will conduct their traditional jumps from the Old Bridge into the cold waters of river Neretva. Keep in mind that you need to be well trained to preform this kind of jumps and that these divers are highly qualified and well trained. Apart from the historic bridge, in this beautiful small town you will visit the old Bazar, the Mosque, the historic street and squares.
After the walking tour, enjoy your free time in Mostar to, perhaps, taste traditional food like „burek“ or „baklava“ or simply to sit back in one of the terraces of the restaurants and relax. Feel free to walk around the town on your own, chat with the locals to get inside tips or simply wonder around the city taking in the unique atmosphere. Later on, get back in the bus to start your journey back to Split where you will be dropped off at the same spot where you were picked up.
