Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country of mountains and water.

Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country of mountains and water. Stretching over 100m across and tumbling down 25m, Kravica is one of the largest waterfalls in Herzegovina, and the most impressive. They have a natural pool dug out at the base of the falls by the constant rush of water. It is a favourite local swimming spot with picnic area, restaurants, cafés and even a place to pitch a tent. Bring a camera when you visit; seeing something as stunning as that is not an everyday occasion. During the summer months, it can be quite crowded and noisy – it’s a place where many people gather to beat the heat, and the restaurants are in close proximity to the waterfall and swimming areas. If that’s not enough you can go on a canoe safari on the Trebižat just a few kilometres down the road.
