POČITELJ

On the way to Kravica we passed Počitelj – medieval pearl of Herzegovina. This fortified village lies on the banks of the emerald green river Neretva, some 30 kilometres south of Mostar. The village itself is set within in a natural karst amphitheatre. First mentioned writing comes from 1444, but village mostly developed during the period from the 16th to 18th centuries under Ottoman rule.
