Erasmus + students and UNMO Buddy Volunteers went on a one day trip to Počitelj.
Počitelj is a Bosnian medieval city with Ottoman influence. Today, it’s mostly a tourist destination because of its gorgeous location, perched up in the hills with beautiful views all around.
But that was not always the case. Once upon a time, Počitelj was a thriving city. Its political and social importance has fluctuated over the centuries since its original establishment in the 15th century. Disaster hit when Počitelj was completely destroyed in the 20th century after the recent war.
Počitelj is now thriving as a tourist destination. Its beautiful cobblestone streets lead to historic buildings and homes, some with Muslims and others with a Christian influence.
Located just past Mostar on the way to the Croatian border, it makes a good stop off when traveling to Dubrovnik. Pocitelj is located right on the freeway and is really easy to get to. Anyone passing can see it up in the hills.
It was a well-spent day with our Erasmus crew.
