Blagaj tekija, Blagaj

Situated below a massive cliff at the source of the Buna River, Blagaj tekija represents an Ottoman religious structure--one that is still used by monks--in a Mediterranean setting. With its temperate climate, idyllic setting, and drinkable fresh water, the site was a favorite spot for numerous Roman nobles, Ottoman viziers, and Austro-Hungarian officers. See the river--one of the strongest in Europe--and observe a wide variety of birds here, including the threatened white-headed vulture. View the plots that hold Mediterranean fruits and tour the shrine, tomb, and mausoleum.

  • The restaurant is really great. But not worth miss! Behind the restaurants you can get to the Dervish house on a rocky path. From here you can take the most beautiful pictures and start the short boat "tour" in the cave. (Do not wait too much, skip this program.)

  • This site is the source of the Buna River, dervishes have built the building that appears in all the photos. I didn't visit the interior, Nor did I go into the cave (boats go there). For the bravest, you can climb to the castle at the top of the cliff: with a temperature of 38 degrees, I would not have risked it. I was in this site with a tour organized from Sarajevo (also combining Mostar / Kravice Falls and Blagaj), only the photo stop (the restaurant) was planned for the program

  • Nice small attraction to visit. Beautiful old style dervish house with mosque and functioning prayer room (wash area near by). Beautiful view of the river as well. Lots of great places to also eat in the area.
  • Preserving our culture is very important. There are way too many war monuments and reminders so something old like this is very valuable in my opinion. I. The only thing I didn't like was the restaurants and building on the opposite site of the river, they don't fit in at all.
