Hutovo Blato is a nature reserve and bird reserve located in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is primarily composed of marshlands that were created by the underground aquifer system of the Krupa River. It is fed from the limestone massif of Ostrvo that divides the Deransko Lake and Svitavsko Lake.To visit Blato Village on your trip to Mljet Island, use our Mljet Island trip planning tool .
The reserve is on the list of BirdLife International's Important Bird Areas. It is the largest reserve of its kind in the region, in terms of both size and diversity. It is home to over 240 types of migratory birds and dozens that make their permanent home in the sub-Mediterranean wetlands surrounding Deransko Lake. In the migration season, tens of thousands of birds fill the lake and its surroundings.
The valley along the last 30 km of the Neretva River, and the river itself, comprise a remarkable landscape. Downstream from the confluence of its tributaries, the Trebižat and Bregava rivers, the valley spreads into an alluvial fan covering 20,000 hectares. The upper valley, the 7,411 hectares in Bosnia and Herzegovina, is called Hutovo Blato.

Ende September wirkt die Gegend ausgestorben. more »Sleepy nest Lake swamp - a small road continues to another swamp Lake on the coast with camping site. End of September the area is extinct.
Vaut le détour pour sa situation isolée loin des circuits traditionnels. un bel alignement de maisons anciennes le long du rocher avant de prendre la route vertigineuse et étroite pour la petite plage... more »Worth a visit for its situation isolated away from the traditional circuits. a nice alignment of old houses along the rock before hitting the steep and narrow road to the small beach of Kosarica.
