Blagaj tekija, Mostar

4.5
#4 of 42 in Things to do in Mostar
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.

    Great view and very interesting place. I think it was worth the trip. There is a coffee shop and a restaurant in the area.  more »

    Sorry... but seeing the photo on google images is enough. There is literally NOTHING to see. You arrive there, you pay for watching some pigeons' den and some house which is much worse than Muslibegov...  more »

    Really beautiful. Enjoy a lunch or snack at the restaurant situated between the river and a stream - very cooling when hot. Also, I highly recommend the boat ride (4km/person) into the cave. It's magical.

    There are graves inside the house. It is spooky. Great location tho...

    Absolutely breathtaking. Loved the atmosphere: the location, its surroundings and even the friendly stall owners who weren't pushing their goods in my face.

    Gorgeous Ottoman dervish site, though somewhat less beautiful than it could be because of the ill-conceived tourist restaurants along the river. But very pretty nonetheless.
