Blagaj tekija, Blagaj

Situated below a massive cliff at the source of the Buna River, Blagaj tekija represents an Ottoman religious structure--one that is still used by monks--in a Mediterranean setting. With its temperate climate, idyllic setting, and drinkable fresh water, the site was a favorite spot for numerous Roman nobles, Ottoman viziers, and Austro-Hungarian officers. See the river--one of the strongest in Europe--and observe a wide variety of birds here, including the threatened white-headed vulture. View the plots that hold Mediterranean fruits and tour the shrine, tomb, and mausoleum.

  • Women who visit need to put on a headscarf. There are separate prayer rooms for men and women. This is the closest you can get to the spring coming out of the mountain.  more »
  • A wonderful place to meditate. The river is turquoise as are all the rivers in Bosnia, Montenegro and Croatia. The opening is not that spectacular but the lovely stone buildings offering dining...  more »
  • I chose not to enter the actual house, preferring to explore the rest of the vllage and relax with a drink but the setting is certainly beautiful - set by the banks of the Buna river with gently...  more »

  • This place is truly beautiful and with crystal clear spring flowing through the mountains. The air is so fresh. Your lungs will be happy. You see Trouts so very clearly in the streams you feel like jumping into the cold water!
  • Nice small attraction to visit. Beautiful old style dervish house with mosque and functioning prayer room (wash area near by). Beautiful view of the river as well. Lots of great places to also eat in the area.
  • Very special,magical and spiritual feeling. If you ever find time and money to afford yourself a trip to come here you should really do it. There is some magic going on here . The entry price into Dervish house is very low - per person 2,5€. It has a rich history since it’s built at the beginning of 15th century. Before you enter Dervish house you also have very unique souvenir shop. Where you can buy a lot of different handmade magnets / leather shoes / islam related souvenirs etc. My expectations were justified even more than I expected . Plan is to come at least once a year here just to restart my mind and soul.
  • Off season they're still trying to charge people for parking 😠. Drive across the river and up to the restaurants on the opposite side from the Dervish house as there's no parking guy there. River is pretty but everything else seems very touristy and commercial.
  • Was such a beautiful place to have lunch at, the surroundings were peaceful and the big fish right there where you are at ❤️
