All reviews the river dervish house worth the trip beautiful place natural beauty day trip short drive great view boat ride men and women wraps spring water free parking visit this place fresh fish early in the morning visiting mostar
The tekke was trully THE most lovely spot in Bosnia until now - such a lovely place. I wish I could have vsted it when the derwshes perform zikr and not just as an "ordinary" tourist!
Incredible story also about the sheikh whose tomb is...More
We had to park the car little far and then walk along the water till the caves. After spending time at the cave, we decided to have lunch at Restaurant Fajic. This was the best place for fresh fish. We also visited the historic house...More
Loved the cave and the river with many small waterfalls, the dervish house is also interesting.
The favorite part of the trip was the first house - when you enter trough the parking ramp there is a small private house that is a beautiful example...More
It's best if you get here before the crowds arrive. We got here early in the morning and were able to park fairly close to the former monastery. It was cool, quite and uncrowded and we had a fascinating visit. You will have to take...More
A pretty place to visit, best view is from the other side of the river. You have to walk through a couple of restaurants to access the bank to get the good view and the parking is about 500m walk away from the monastery. Wouldnt...More
Beautiful setting on a spring river you can really delve into this historic house dedicated to the Dervish. Besides the incredible connection you get with the house and it’s everyday religious life use you can have lunch in a very calm and serene setting. A...More
This place is definitely not that special. Is beautiful but you can find beauty all around you in Bosnia. Worth 1 or 2 hours to see the place but not more than that.
Don't pay to enter the house, go on the opposite margin of...More
This place should be one of the most beautiful spots in Bosnia, but actually it is full of restaurants and tourists that make everything dirty. We were not able to stay there for more then 10 minutes and left. Disappointing.
We enjoyed the scenery and it was a nice walk in to see the dervish house built against the cliff. We came early, so there were not many people, however tour buses were arriving in numbers as we were leaving. Lots of little stalls selling...More

There is a large parking lot about 1km away. I saw cars parked along the road but thought they belonged to the vendors who worked in the kiosks along the road. It's slightly downhill getting in, uphill going back. There are lovely things to look at along the road, and vendors for a pomegranate juice or pastry. Make note of the rock roofs as you walk past. They are very prevalent in this area. You can get brochures in every hotel or the TI in Mostar by the bridge that will give you hours. They are seasonal, as I went in October couldn't tell you about May. Take some small Mark Bill's or change to tip the women who help you with headwear, or for the gift shop. They take Euros but not change.

Along the lines of what others have said, the Blagaj Tekija is a Muslim monastery, place of worship, and museum. While it may be a monastery or "dervish lodge," it does not, to my knowledge have whirling dervishes but there are many people there who visit for religious reasons or who are praying.
One other person noted that you need to go to Turkey to see that and as far as I know, that is correct. Even if there are dervishes in Bosnia-Herzegovina, they will not be "Whirling Dervishes," who are members of a specific monastic/dervish order, the Mevlevi, who are now only in Turkey (the only dervish order to survive the republic's secularization officially and intact). They have two lodges, one in Konya and one in Istanbul (near Istiklal Caddesi and the Galata Tower, if you are familiar with that city).

If I were you i would take guided tour, probably you are not familiar with the area, do not know language, (even majority of people know at least basic English) and for one day trip they would better organize your trip. Too much hassle going on your own... Parking in Mostar old town is big issue.
Do your research on the net for the agencies it's still enough time to find one. Like somebody before suggested make it two day trip and visit other places in Bosnia, Pocitelj must see, even Sarajevo is only two hours away from Mostar.
Not much to do in Dubrovnik in April. (If it was summer, one week is not enough).
