With the arrival of summer days, most people think about going to the swimming pools to cool off and ease the summer heat to some extent. Although most people prefer the swimming pools or the seaside, there are some interested in exotic destinations and locations.

Those who want to try something new do not have to go far. Waterfalls Kravica in Bosnia and Herzegovina are among one the most beautiful beaches in the world. Time Out magazine has included Kravica waterfall in 12th place on their list of 15 of the most spectacular places to swim in the world.

The Kravica waterfall is located on the 50 km long course of the Trebižat river in Studenci near Ljubuški. It was created in the area where the Trebižat River splits, creating a magnificent 30 meters high waterfall. Crystal clear and turquoise water surrounded by greenery forms a water amphitheater with a diameter of 120 meters with a natural pool. In the summer period, due to the lower water level of the river, tourists can not only swim in the pool under the falls but also enjoy different water sports. This oasis in stone attracts around 200 thousand tourists a year.

The Sredena areas around the Kravica waterfall is the geological natural monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the past, numerous mills, and stupas for rolling cloth were active by the waterfall. Today these stone mills mostly stand by the river as a reminder of some ancient times, and few of them are still in operation. The experience of visiting the Kravica waterfall is completed by a nearby small cave, open on both sides with stalactites made of calcium carbonate, an old mill, and a boat. Kravica is one of the most beautiful natural beauties in Herzegovina in general.
