Blagaj tekija, Mostar

(4.4/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Loved this location. The river and contrast of the mountain. The worship house itself is beautiful features to admire.  more »
  • One of my favourite places in Bósnia. A Nature's phenomenon that attracts a lot of tourists and local citizens, where you can take a hot tea or a turkish coffee, or eat traditional food near the river...  more »
  • Dervish House. The entrance fee, but it's better to pay in euros than in Croatian kunas. Because as I overpay. A nice place. A lot of tourists. At the entrance to the House, wear appropriate clothes-and the ladies and gentlemen (and not without this). Without fear, to lend on the spot for free. You can park your car for free, but you have to know where to look) The views I have had a few feet away. Worth a visit on the occasion of a visit to Mostar.

  • Beautiful place not far from Mostar that is a must see if you are around. The birth place of an transparent colour river. It's juat peaceful. There is some restaurants around, a couple of campings and food stores.
  • The old summer setting of pasha from Mostar. Very nice place, museum inside, worth of visiting. Crowded during the season.
  • The setting is incredible. The inside mildly interesting, despite very nice staff and some reasonably good explanation (on a piece of paper).
  • Wow it's really amazing place! I saw it on movie years ago and always wanted to visit it! It is magical please and beautiful architecture! Absolutely must who comes to Mostar!!!
  • Good place for those who like to enjoy nature.
