Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country of mountains and water. Only a hop, skip and a jump from Međugorje, Ljubuški and Čapljina, Kravica is a remarkable waterfall on the Trebižat River and a great spot for a picnic and a swim. If that’s not enough you can go on a canoe safari on the Trebižat just a few kilometres down the road.
Stretching over 100m across and tumbling down 25m, Kravica is one of the largest waterfalls in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the most impressive. A natural pool has been 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 you’re in the mood to explore, you can take a 20-minute walk or an electric boat for 20KM to the smaller waterfall nearby, Mala Kravica.
