BIH we love you - Fortica - Velez

Usually my hometown is known like a place with a lot of sunny days, but this year we got almost 12 days in a row under the clouds. As you expect I am not a big fan of it. Because, rain mixed with a strong wind is not giving a lot of time to spend outdoor or in a nature.

Blagaj Tekke and Blagaj Fortress – best weekend trip around Mostar

Stjepan grad - Blagaj fort
Stjepan grad ruins

Mostar is one of the most beautiful places in touristically underrated country Bosnia and Herzegovina. When I wrote an article about my hometown I intentionally avoided these places. Located only 10 minutes if you are traveling with a car from Mostar they can be perfect Saturday trip outside the city.

Daorson – Mysterious ancient capital in the south of Herzegovina

Daorson South Tower

Moving through the Bosnia and Herzegovina you will find a lot of interesting historical buildings and places. Daorson is for sure the most mysterious and unknown place in whole country. The remains of this once strongest town in the wider area are located in Ošanići, near Stolac in Herzegovina. It consisted of three parts, the central of which was a fortress – acropolis protected by ”Cyclopean” walls made of huge stone blocks (similar to the Mycenaean ones in Greece). It included all important administrative, public and religious buildings. The defense wall stretching from southwest to northeast was 65 m long, 4.2 m wide and between 4.5 and 7.5 m high, and it had gates and towers at both ends.

October in my hometown – Mostar

Vrda - Mostar
Beautiful view on the Neretva River

It is October… The time of streets filled with a smell of baked chestnut, crunchy leaves, and cozy sweaters has finally arrived. Woods are dressing red and gold sweaters giving all the essence of the earth to be inhaled in one breath, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea. For me, this is the smell which gives me feel of the home. If someone writes a book of most beautiful pleasures on Balkan this would probably be one of the main topics in that book. Balkan Hygge, some would say.
