Blagaj tekija, Mostar

4.5
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.

  • We were there the may 2017. Because it is a tourist attraction, of course, still many are others there. I found it very interesting, my friend, however, was not so enthusiastic. For women in the House... but cloths are available there headscarf compulsory. The walk in the installation, I felt as the greatest point. Nice trip for 1-2 hours :)

  • Built at the base of the cliff whence springs the Buna River in full force, this is a perfect place for lunch and even a swim. Easy to get to from Mostar.  more »
  • Worth watching... Definitely! A beautiful place, located on the river. Properly romantic with many seats and water noise, I can recommend only.

  • Absolutely fantastic place for relaxing and enjoying nature
  • Beautiful place with great souvenir's shops - This painting oil on canvas is beautiful and very cheap. Everyone should visit this place and souvenir's shops also.
  • Very nice place to spend a lot of time and enjoy looking at the way they were previous people pray to ALLAH continually the most of the day of their lives.
  • There is a mosque at the highest reachable walking point. The small mosque can accomodate around 100 people. The female section is located downstairs. The river is crystal clear but the water is very cold indeed. 25 Oct 17. Many small waterfalls and its breathtaking to see. Magnificent scenery.
  • Nice mosque in interesting area. Cheap tickets, parkinf for 4€, you can try to find some space a little further for free. If you want to get inside you have to wear special uniform (woman sth for hair). Nice landscapes. Quite near Mostar.
