From Blagaj we continue the journey on a straight section cycling along the river Buna, reaching the natural monuments on the Neretva, the place where the Buna flows into the Neretva, or the Buna canals as the locals call this place.

10.15 AMFortica Adventure / Recreation Park

Enjoy in coffe with view on city of Mostar from Fortica.

Fortica Sports and Adventure Park is located on the Fortica hill east of Mostar at an altitude of 500m. The main attraction of the sports and adventure park “Fortica” is the 570m long ZIP LINE, which offers a fantastic view of Mostar. The starting point of ZIP LINE is in front of the mountain lodge and the lookout point where the state flag of BiH is located, and it ends on the steep rocks of the sports climbing area “Stolac”, where 13 climbing routes are marked. In addition to the large ZIP LINE, there is also a children’s ZIP LINE 20m long.

1:00 PMRestoran Montanaro (Pause)

Hotel/Restoran MontaNaro is located at the Velež Mountain foothills, one of the most beautiful mountain in eastern Herzegovina, east of Mostar and the Neretva River.

The distance to the hotel from the Mostar city center is 22 kilometers. The hotel is located in Podvelež village at an altitude of 750m. The hotel is surrounded by nature so all of our guests can enjoy the immense beauty of Podveležje.

2:15 PMDestination tour: Blagaj

This place, near Mostar, has been known for centuries as an oasis of peace and natural harmony and another proof of the natural beauty of BiH.

Blagaj is located only 12 km south of Mostar. Due to the proximity of the Adriatic Sea and low altitude, the climate is Mediterranean. In the peace of the Tekke courtyard, cooled by the freshness of the fairy-tale Buna, you understand why Blagaj was the center of interest of Roman nobles, Ottoman viziers and caddies, Austro-Hungarian officers and many occasional travelers eager for spring freshness, warmth of sun and blue sky. Blagaj has an extremely large number of sunny days, almost 200. Therefore, it is not surprising that about 170 species of birds find habitat in this area. Ecologically clean and cold Buna, whose source is one of the strongest in Europe, is ideal for growing world-famous trout. Mediterranean fruits thrive on fruits: grapes, figs, peaches, apricots, pomegranates, kiwis…

One of the most attractive and most interesting destinations for tourists in Blagaj is certainly the Dervish tekke, then the Old Tower – Stjepan grad, Velagića complex… The whole ambience exudes untouched nature and old customs. Only a few areas can boast of the beauty that Blagaj offers. A large number of tourists return to this place every year.

4:30 PMDestination tour: Old bridge in Mostar

Immortalized on the flag and coat of arms of the city, the Old Bridge has been the center of life in Mostar since its construction in the 16th century. Almost as legendary as the bridge itself is the photograph of jumpers jumping from a bridge from a height of 27 meters into the crystal clear water of the icy Neretva River.

This bridge, just like the Old Town, is under UNESCO protection, and is often cited as one of the most beautiful bridges in the world. The shape of the bridge itself also has its own story, it is said that it represents life… that the bridge itself represents one half of the circle, and its reflection in the water is the other half of the circle, and that whole picture represents life. He is the stage on which the young men from Mostar jump into the Neretva to prove their courage in a kind of maturity exam. The tradition of jumping is 451 years old.

And when they run and jump off the bridge, they fall down into the river and fly in the air like birds doing each one some special kind of acrobatics. Some jump steeply, others sitting with tools, and some jump into the water in pairs, threes and immediately happily go ashore climbing the rocks, and come up to the end of the bridge and receive the gifts of the vizier and champion – wrote the famous travel writer Evliya lebelebi, observing in Mostar jumps from the Old Bridge“.

5:00 PMEnd point: City of Mostar

After a great trip and adventure, we return to the place where we started cycling. We believe that you will enjoy the journey and the adventure and tell your friends the details of the trip. Thank you!
