Cemetery Tourist Spot
Radimlja is a stećak necropolis located near Stolac, Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is located in Vidovo polje, 3 km west of Stolac, on the Čapljina-Stolac road. The Radimlja necropolis is one of the most valuable monuments of the mediaeval period in Bosnia and Herzegovina.The majority of its stećak tombstones date from the 15th and 16th centuries, as evidenced by the epitaph on one of the tombstones - this was the period when the Hrabren Miloradović family lived in Ošanići. Records from 1967 show that the necropolis then had a total of 133 tombstones.When the Čapljina-Stolac road was built during the Austro-Hungarian period, it ran through the necropolis, leaving 11 tombstones to the north and all the rest to the south of the road. Some twenty tombstones were probably destroyed in the process. A total of 63 are decorated, in bas relief, engraving or a combination of the two. The finest decorated examples are gabled tombstones and tall chest-shaped tombstones. There are epitaphs on five tombstones referring to the Hrabren Miloradović family.The site is in jeopardy from the construction of buildings in the immediate vicinity.

  • Excellent place to visit if you like historical monuments
  • Nezaibilazno mjesto za turiste. Odlični vodiči, uređena lokacija od ove godine na listi UNESCO-a, animljivi eksponati / Great place for turistic visit. Great guides, perfect heritage UNESCO site location, interesting monuments.
  • Finest historical site to visit in Stolac. Although not pricey with entrance fee of 2 euros per person, there is just not much to hear and do for those 2 euros. One can see most of it in 15 or 20 minutes. Staff is young and educated, they should offer a bit more, because Stolac has rich history, at least, this is UNESCO heritage site.
  • This country's equivalent of Stonehenge. Beautiful, bewildering, mysterious. Great historical background. The entrance fee is 2 euros.
  • Very interesting necropolis. The spot itself is amazing too.
