  • 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.

  • 土耳其风情的宅院。院子不大,共两层小楼。客厅、卧室、储物间、阁楼。客厅的墙上挂着锅、苕帚、衣服等生活用品,大箱子里放着女主人的裙子,看了看,目测相当于我们的睡袋,可以想像,当年女主人风风火火,健步如飞的性格与体魄。

  • 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
