Pocitelj, Bosnia and Herzegovina

(4.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
At , observe how Mediterranean and Oriental styles intertwine in one of the few urban ensembles in Bosnia and Herzegovina that have been preserved. Bosnia's King Stjepan Tvrtko I is said to have built the fortified town in 1383. Walk down narrow, cobbled streets and climb the stone stairs to the fortress. A 16th-century mosque dominates the town, but the most striking landmark is the Sahat-kula--a clock tower on the top of the hill. Other notable buildings include a madrassa (school) with its original copper domes, a hamam (public bath), and a former han (a resting point for caravans) that's now a restaurant.

  • Something like our Cesky Krumlov, just has that place atmosphere, thanks to the interest of the artists and znovuzrodilo, this attractiveness. More ambitious output, so not for everyone, even if it is just beside the road. Mutlikulturní historical monuments-fortress, city walls, the Castle, the mosque ...

  • That's unique example of the middle age city with the castle, were people are living still in the historical houses. Absolutely worth to stop and visit it! Really impressing view from the top of the castle's tower!
  • Nice for sightseeing and eating some fresh fruits. Souvenirs are 50% more expensive than in Mostar, from a few products I've compared such as silver jewelry and a coffee grinder made of copper. It's worth visiting it.
  • An amazing old city, I highly recommend visiting if you're passing by. Some parts are a bit full of growth, but there are lots of fruit trees growing around that you're free to pick.
  • Wonderful middle-aged city, great view, romantic sunset... must see destination
  • Beautiful Bosnian town, wonderful surprise.
