Nice little fortress village on the way to Mostar worth the quick stopover. There is a really nice bakery on the parking (right after the town, or before pending where you’re coming from!) - recommend grabbing a few local treats from there for lunch :)

This is a former fort with a small settlement inside, though the number of families are dwindling. We were given a tour of this place by i-House Travel - we started at the lookout point and walked down, past the ruined turret, all the way...More

When driving from Dubrovnik to Mostar, Pocitelj makes a convenient and interesting rest stop. Containing both Christian and Muslim architecture, it's a nice preview of what you will see on a grander scale in Mostar. I wouldn't rate Pocitelj as a "must see" attraction, but...More

Came here as part of a tour to Bosnia and it was a nice bonus little stop off. The little town is crowned by a fort that reminds you of a Bond villain's hide out. There are charming little cobbled streets that lead up the...More

For such a small place with 23 residents, there are so many interesting and unique buildings to explore. The climb up to the fort was well worth it.

Historically a predominantly Muslim town, this delightful stop on the way to Mostar is worth the effort. There are many steps to the top of the ruins of Počitelj, shallow steps for easy climbing but slippery in places. But the striking views from the Kula...More

Pocitelj is a small place, but it is worth stopping there as the road between Mostar and Capljina was the most beautiful drive on our holiday in Herzegovina. We didnt stop at the mosque,but hiked to the ruins on top. They are not particularly well...More

If you are driving to Mostar, this is worth a quick stop. It only takes about twenty minutes to walk all the way around. Its a nice little 'town' with beautiful old buildings and mosque. Nothing to go out of your way to see though.

This old turkish village is one of otoman very last settlements on the road to the Adriatic sea. Well preserved with very interesting architecture. Fantastic for photo sessions.

Nice small stop-over on the road to Mostar, very good looking old town and fortress, no tourists running around, good views. Nobody asked about any entrance fees, so we walked around there like 45-60 minutes.
