#7 of 7 in Nature in Herzegovina-Neretva Canton
The Bregava is a sinking river in Bosnia and Herzegovina that passes through the town of Stolac. It is a left tributary of the Neretva river.
The river Bregava and its buildings - bridges, mills and stamping mills over the river - constitutes the backbone of the urban layout of Stolac. It passes through two waterfalls in Stolac, one which is natural and the other artificial, and continue its way through the Bregava canyon leading to Badanj Cave. It is famous for its pure blue colour, like the Neretva river which passes through Mostar. Many natural beaches are spread along the river.
Bregava river also gathers a rich flora biodiversity, wild peppermint, sage, thyme, almond trees and numerous fruit trees (pomegranates, kiwis, plums, grapes...), and fauna living around, butterflies, trout, ducks, numerous diverse birds and water snakes.
Bridges: the most important surviving bridges on the Bregava are Ćuprija (Inat ćuprija), the oldest surviving bridge on the Bregava, assumed from the style of building to date from the medieval period; Podgradska ćuprija, the second oldest bridge in Stolac municipality, believed to have been built in the early 18th century; the bridge in Begovina, most recent of the three stone bridges in Stolac; the Sara Kašiković bridge, built according to its inscription in 1896. This was a privately owned bridge, and had gates to close it off; it is the largest privately owned bridge; the bridge leading to Ada; the small bridge by the Šarić summer residence; and the bridge by the Ali Pasha mosque.

  • Important, from a certain charm to Stolac, as for many other cities crossed by rivers. Along the river there are many interesting constructions like the mills, the various bridges, and a couple of points with water jumps. A walk following the course of the river is very pleasant and allowed us to see so many interesting things, with the possibility even to cool off in some places.

  • How much I liked the Bregava river and this cute small town, it felt all very depressive - probably also due to the bad weather, but not only to that. You can hardly see smiles on the faces of people....  more »

  • An amazing river, worth visiting during the summer for a dip. I recommend going to Pjene for a swim, the water is the most clear there, and you can enjoy the water cascades.
  • Best river
  • Beautiful, clear river, touches from the mountains, with a karst, and flows through the Stalac, enriching it, and giving it an extra dose of living.
