A Walk Around Konjic.
On the way back to Banja Luka from our trip to Blagaj, we stopped off for an overnight break at Konjic.
It also gave me the opportunity to meet with the team at Visit Konjic.
In the coming months I will be partnering with Visit Konjic to show you some of the amazing activities you can take part in whilst discovering this beautiful country.
Now some fun facts and history.
Konjic is a town and municipality located in northern Herzegovina, around 50 kilometres (31 mi) southwest of Sarajevo.
It is a mountainous, heavily wooded area, and is 268 m (879 ft) above sea level. The municipality extends on both sides of the Neretva River.
The city is one of the oldest permanent settlements in Bosnia, dating back almost 4000 years; the city in its current incarnation arising as an important town in the late 14th century.
Konjička Stara Ćuprija (Stara Ćuprija = Old Bridge) was built between 1682 and 1683 by Ali-aga Hasečić (as shown by a stone plaque at the center of the bridge).
It was built over six slightly pointed stone arches.
It is the best preserved Ottoman bridge in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The arches were destroyed by the retreating German army in March 1945.
The bridge was rebuilt in its original state between 2003 and 2009.
The bridge is now proclaimed a National Monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
