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.

  • Great place to stop by when you're in Herzegovina! Beautiful old muslim place! Very nice for walking and it has a spectacular view!

A few souvenir sellers are friendly and not oppressive. Amazing view of the river and the Valley which is worth a visit.
