Herzegovina is a region of amazing natural beauty, and lavish landscapes. Kravice, about forty kilometres south of Mostar, is a waterfall on the Trebižat River, that’s a great example of this beauty. At a height of about 25 meters, dozens of gushing springs and lake radius of 120 meters, Kravice is a popular swimming and picnic area and, during the summer, it is quite a popular spot for with tourists coming from Mostar, Medjugorje and Dubrovnik.
At the top there is a car park at the entry to the park and its about a short walk down a ramp which takes you all the way down to the base of the falls. The area also has a little cafe, a rope swing, a picnic area, and a place to camp. As the water levels of the Trebižat river change, the waterfalls look different at different times of the year, I was told the best time of year for visiting is during the springtime when the fall is at its fullest and the landscape turns a bright green in colour but I was there in August 2013, and it was just as amazing.
There is only one problem though! Its almost impossible to find the the place, even though its close to Mostar. I would recommend going on a tour or a taxi (40km each way would cost about 45-50 Marks each way). If you hire your own car, check out this video on how to get there. Also a map would be useful, as there aren’t lot of signs around this area. But don’t let this stop you from visiting, it is defiantly worth the hassle!
If you happen to be staying in Mostar for a few days, do visit the Kravice waterfalls, and experience the beauty for yourself.
Have you ever been to Kravice or other amazing waterfalls in Bosnia? Would love to hear your adventures.
