Broad river delta, verdant landscape, roadside fruit stalls, boat trips. A contrasting landscape to the rocky Dalmatian coastline
The Neretva Delta, about one hour drive north west of Dubrovnik
and 45 minutes south east from Makarska
, with its fertile groves of oranges and lemons and networks of lakes, rivers, and canals provides an unusual and contrasting landscape. Over the border in Bosnia, the historic town of Mostar, with its iconic bridge provides a vivid cultural contract with it Mosques, local cuisine and busy narrow shopping streets and market stalls. Mostar is around 45km from the Croatian border at Metkovic. The town of Medugorje, the famous place of religious pilgrimage, is as similar distance from the border.
