Hotel QUERCUS can organize one day excursions for you or your group, across attractive locations of the historical, cultural and religious significance for Herzegovina region.

Mostar

We can assist you also with a day trip to the nearest city of Mostar, the commercial and cultural town center of southern Hercegovina. Situated 60m above sea level between the mountains of Čabile, Čvrsnice, Prenja, Veleža, and Hum. Mostar appears in historical records as far back as the XV century. It is world famous for its Stari Most(Old bridge),built in 1566, and symbolically connected the east and west sections of Hercegovina. Mostar has joined the official UNESCO list of world heritage sites in the year 2005.

Kravice

One of the most attractive destination for tourists and pilgrims who have decided to take some time out to view the nearest beauty spots. Located only 15 kilometers from Medjugorje, on the river Trebižat, and only a few kilometers from the town of Ljubuški it is created from the full rock flow of the river. It is a most beautiful and natural phenonema under state protection as a geological tribute to nature. The height of the fall is estimated at approx 26-28 meters falling dramatically to a bowl spreading to a radius of maybe 120m. Because of this it has become a popular local swimming spot and with its green and fertile surroundings, a heavenly setting for relaxing meal out offering beautiful picnic spots and pleasant restaurants. During the summer when the water vaporizes and rises high above the falls with its emerald green waters flowing along its fertile banks, where flowers and trees bloom alongside its limstone enriched rocks rising from surprisingly soft and sandy grounds, there is no cooler or more beautiful place in Hercegovina.

Sarajevo

The city of Sarajevo is the capital of BIH, is considered one of the most important Balkan cities, with its long and rich history. Formed by the Turkish Ottoman empire in the 15th century, and because of its geoghraphical position it has been a settlement for varying cultural and religious groups, and the town reflects those influences.

Široki Brijeg

Located in southern BIH 30km from Medjugorje, and built on the river Lištic, its main attraction is the Franciscan monastery and church , consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Alonside the monastery on the 25 July 1990, was opened the permanent Franciscan Gallery of Široki Brijeg. On permanent display are works by mostly Croatian skulptors and artists of modern and contemporary art, both by professionals and amateurs. It should be mentioned that there is also numerous archaeological findings on display, the most significant being the prehistorical mass remains of the ancient town Mokristika,the remains of the middleaged town, of Široki Brijeg, featuring the oldest known church remains in this area, and probably in the whole of BIH. Raised in the 4th or 5th century in Mokrom, a confirmed town that the tzar Constantine called Mokristik, it reflects the early habitations of those ancient times.

Počitelj

Excursions to Počitelj are also possible, registered with UNESCO, as a settlement built in the time of the Bosnian kingTvrtko in 1383, and is documented as far back as 1444. This small middle-aged settlement has mediterranean characteristics, but having survived Turkish domination has now some strong oriental features, and these two styles reflect an interesting mixture to the discerning tourist.

Mogorjelo

Remains of a surburban roman villa from the beginning of the IV century, and also within the grounds , the remains from a I century dwelling and its outbuildings, among which it is maintained include an old bakery, a mill and a blacksmith. Within the grounds is the living proof that even back in those ancient times, the Romans knew to reap the benefits of our fertile terrain and grow the precious olive tree, with the discovery of the remains of an underground storage, where it is maintained they stored olive oil. Since then the olive tree and the vine cultivation go hand in hand as a significant part of the agricultural life in BIH.With the invasion of the Goths came the destruction of the villa and survivors of that era were unable to restore the grounds to its former splendour, but regardless whatever remains of the vila and its surrounding dwellings will steal the breath of any discerning tourist.

Hutovo Blato

This most frequented spot for nature lovers was developed in 1995. Located only 22 kilometers from Medjugorje in south east Hercegovina, on the left side of the Neretva river, in the district of Čapljina and Stolac. Consisting of an area of some 7411 hectors Hutovo Blato is considered one of Europes finest bird sanctuary. In fact in 1998 the ICBP(International Community for Bird Protection) added Hutova Blato to the list of international sanctuaries. Also in the year 2001 Hutova Blato was enrolled with UNESCO as being of international importance and registered as a swamp adhering to the standards set by the Ramsark Convention for wildlife protection.

Gabela

The rich archaeological site is found on the banks of the river Neretva 19 kilometers south from Medjugorje, and has retained a significant amount of the ruined walls and sculptures of the stone lioned symbol of Venetian culture. It has become a National monument. Gabela ‘s first records date back to year 1186 known then as Drijeva Skela. It appears as Gabela as far back as year 1399. In the year 1715 Gabela was destroyed by the Venetians and was never rebuilt to its original splendour. In more recent history it is a great subject for debate where some noted historians maintain that Gabela was in fact Troy, and Mexican historian Robert Salin Price, has sufficiently supported his theory that in fact it is Troy.

After the destruction of ancient Narona developed the stronghold and trade centre in the Neretva valley in the Middle Ages, called Gabela.

Trebižat

It is a trip lasting one day icluding the drive with canoes on the path way 10 kilometers long, lunch in the open air, bathing in the clear river; it is unique for the wider Mediterranean area.
