If you’re on your way to Hutovo blato or the Adriatic coast, this is the place where you must stop. This quiet, oriental town is located 3 km north of Čapljina in the direction of Mostar. This unique resort is also listed on the UNESCO heritage list.
Although the city was first mentioned in written records in year 1444, it is assumed that it was built by the Bosnian king Tvrtko, in 1383. This medieval town has a Mediterranean look, but after the Turkish conquest was reshaped in a more oriental style.
A mixture of these two architectural styles gives a special dimension to Počitelj.
