Very interesting but tour guide only gave us 20minutes to explore. Saw Muslim mosque, took photos. Souvenir shops. Toilets in reataurants-ok; just have to buy something first.

We stopped here on our way to Mostar, and I was absolutely enchanted with with this wonderful little town. It's absolutely beautiful, on the top of a hill with stunning views of the river and countryside. There's a mosque, old stone houses and it's a relatively easy walk to the fort above the town - it's definitely worth going up the tower, even though the stairs are a little steep. Also, be aware that like other old towns around here, the old paths can be a bit slippery. Tour groups do stop here, so it can be a bit touristy but definitely worth visiting! Overall, it's one of my favourite small towns in the region.

We stopped off in Pocitelj after our visit to Kravice Falls which was a short 20 minute drive. On our arrival, we thought this small delicate town was completely correct to be a UNESCO site, although you can miss the turn if your not concentrating on the road properly. 40 degrees weather made it crazy, but crazy is as crazy does! The old town is complete with cobbled stones and steps leading to the top, which on route you will see a mosque, citadel and castle. Also spectacular views of the Neretva river can be seen.
We spent 2 hours here, so that we could feel the peace that seems to be treasured here, even though people are still living in the old town. Good things come in small packages is an understatement. Pocitelj is pure beauty and we have not even 1 negative thing to say about it. Many picturesque images can be taken from Pocitelj, just make sure you understand what its all about before you get back in your car and leave...

Pocitelj is about twenty or twenty-five kilometres south of Mostar, and is a popular place for people wanting peace and relaxation from the stress of the city.

It's an extraordinarily beautiful town on a hill, with ancient stone houses, winding alley-ways, and an ancient mosque (restored, but unostentatiously) near the top, with a shady tree next to it.

The people seemed extraordinarily friendly.

There's a cool-looking river down below, by which it might be possible to have a picnic.

On the way back to Mostar, you can stop at Žitomislići, another peaceful, beautiful spot, with a wonderful monastery.

I'd rather live in either of these than in Mostar itself.

This little town is protected and restorated as original. I really fascinated about a mosque and panorama of castle. You can find original tea-house and some suvenirs to buy.It is best place to take photographs in Bosnia.
