As I have already confessed Bosnia and Herzegovina surprised me in a really pleasant way. After reading a few articles about this amazing country, I decided upon an itinerary for those couple of days I was going to spend in Mostar.
Even with this itinerary in my mind, I allowed myself to be spontaneous and just out of the blue I added another place to my trip list. This decision was more than inspired because I discovered an incredibly beautiful place, situated 40 kilometers away from Mostar.
The name of this place is Kravice Waterfalls and it is a range of spectacular natural waterfalls formed along the Trebizat river. This Bosnian jewel is considered one of the largest waterfalls in the country and also the most impressive one.It takes only a few minutes to get from the car park to the waterfall itself.
Hidden somewhere in the middle of nature, this 25- meter high waterfall consists of over a dozen gushing springs which occupy a semicircular area of 120 meters. The base of the waterfall looks like a natural swimming pool and makes the tourists long to bathe in its clear green water.
The entire area is actually a place where both the tourists and the locals can relax in a peaceful atmosphere. Swimming, sunbathing, enjoying a drink at one of the terraces or simply admiring the lovely image of the waterfalls are just a few of the activities you can check there.
Even if the natural beauty of this place has been preserved, I think that the few cafes and restaurants, that have been built there, spoil a bit its authenticity. In case you want to spend a few days right in the middle of this jewel, you should know that there are places for camping.
All things considered, Kravice Waterfalls is definitely worth visiting and you should add it to your trip list in case you are going to visit Mostar.
