Neretva River

Since ancient times the Neretva had allowed progress and growth of the human community, and not to mention Neretva when talking about Herzegovina, it would be the same as not mentioning river Nile when writing about Egypt.

This turquoise gem has created fertile fields from Glavaticevo to Doljani, making the region the habitat for much of the flora and fauna. The Neretva River springs in the area of Borca, Zelengora Mountain and like all rivers in Bosnia flows towards the north, in this case, more precisely, to the northwest. In the upper course of the river finds its way between the massifs Visocica and Bjelasnica in the north and massive Crvanj and Prenj in the south. It flows through canyons and a few fertile valleys.

Unlike other rivers in Bosnia, Neretva fails to penetrate further north, passing north of the massif Prenj river turns south where it merges with river Rama. It then makes its way through the canyons between Cvrsnica and Prenja to Mostar Valley where it loses the character of a rapid mountain river. Neretva then gently meanders through Capljina and even further to the delta between the Croatian towns Metkovic and Ploce, where it flows into the crystal clear Adriatic Sea.

Neretva river, rapid, sparkling, green, clear ... Mountain river Neretva, which in one part, in the canyon upstream from Konjic, provides a unique experience for rafters looking for adrenaline.
