  • It is located along the Neretva River, Ottoman era houses. Recreating the life of the House at the time (and think say belong to the hierarchy quite high), exhibited furniture, furnishings, clothing, etc. Was impressed, so I stay at a hotel attached to the muslibegovitsa museum exhibit similar, Justice turned in somewhat inferior. It might look either on the other hand is muslibegovitsa, is from the stone bridge near the time be in good

  • Totally amazing place. Must see . Tastes of local beverage s plus history . The ambience of the property was welcomed and welcoming the hosts really engaged with us 
  • This old Ottoman House dating back to the 17TH century, nice and cosy. It is situated near the banks of the Neretva River. Retains the House and original furniture together with your garden. From the gate of entrance courtyard of pavers, as well as engravings in the balustrade balconies and joists support. The House has two floors, the bottom floor is private and on the upper floor, which is accessed by stairs, is the Museum showing us a piece of the life of the dominant classes of those times, with beautiful views over the Neretva River. It is a highly recommended and interesting visit. As in other sites visited, there shoes to enter. The entrance is payment. And takes between 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Kajtaz house is in the street of the same name and it is probably built at the end of 16th or at the beginning of the 17th century. Its original form has been preserved. The house belongs to town dwelling architecture, and it is the most beautiful living complex built in Turkish times, with separate houses for men and women. High walls protect it from strong sunshine and from people from the outside looking in. Valuable carpets can be seen on the floors of large rooms, and numerous books in Arabic have been preserved. It is made of stone and wood.
  • Owner of the house and guide is extremely friendly and tells a very interesting story
