Museum in Humac – a witness of history


In Franciscan monastery of st. Anthony of Padua in Humac you can find the oldest museum in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Museum in Humac is founded in 1884. This place is located just few kilometers away from the city of Ljubuški. In renewed release of museum you can find a rich collection of objects collected from all over the Herzegovina. They originate from the Stone Age, ancient ones, as well as ones from nowadays. Franciscan priests from Herzegovina have been collecting, keeping and studying materials from the past for decades.

Today, Museum in Humac is highly modernized and decorated. It will bring you back to past because of all the stone walls and really unique artifacts that cannot be seen in other places. That makes it the perfect place for all the history lovers and people who want to learn something new about the country that they are visiting.

But, one artifact makes this museum special. It is Humac Tablet (on Croatian “Humačka ploča”), the oldest preserved monument written in Croatian language. Language is a mixture of Glagolitic and Old Croatian Cyrillic – “bosančica” on territory of today’s Bosnia and Herzegovina. Archaeology research showed it dates all the way back from 12th century. This artifact is highly valued as one of the oldest artifacts written on Croatian and it will surely amaze you.

    Because of the pandemic, we were only able to visit one winery, but it was a wonderful experience! Our driver, Jasmin, was great! The agency went above and beyond to offer replacement experiences for us because of the COVID closures. We highly recommend!! It was a great experience!
