Join us on an adventurous photography day tour to Mostar, one of the greatest legacies of 4 centuries of Ottoman rule in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Many of the 16-19th century buildings in the Old Town have been given back their original glory. The Old Bridge across the Neretva river has also been restored, enabling the 477 year diving competition to continue, at the end of every July.
On the way to Mostar, a short stop above the Blue Lake in Imotski is mandatory to appreciate the huge sinkhole on the edge of town with its 200 meter deep lake.
Mostar is a mix of Bosnian and Croatian cultures, with a high influence of Turkish architecture, culture and cuisine. Peruse the cobblestone streets, sink your teeth into a burek and have real Turkish coffee on the river bank. Your photographer guide will show you excellent spots to take memorable pictures, assist you in choosing the right angles, positions and moments when to capture wonderful shots. The guide is also your personal photographer, so you can actually be in the pictures you bring back home. Expect plenty of advice from you guide on photo techniques, angles, ideas and locations.
Moving on to the nearby Dervish monastery Blagaj Tekke you will explore the building, presumably built very soon after Ottoman rule was established in Herzegovina, around 1520. The monastery is built into the mountain next to a cave from which the Buna river emerges.
Depending on the time of the year, there may be time to visit the Kravice waterfalls or medieval town and fortress in Počitelj.
Our guide will show points of interest on the way, stopping when you feel the need to snap a photo. The tour has a framework, but is flexible to your needs and ideas you may have along the way.
