Kravica – an oasis in western Herzegovina
Just one of many Herzegovinian natural treasures lies down in the western part of it, next to the border with Croatia. Kravica Waterfall is located in a place called Studenci half an hour away from Mostar. “In the middle of nowhere”, surrounded by dense green forests on the karst surface, this waterfall is a special experience to everyone who comes to see it.
Kravica is located on the Trebižat River. The radius of the lake in the base of the waterfall is 120 meters and its high is about 25 meters. In the area of the waterfall, you can find a little cafe, but there is plenty of space for a picnic or camping. Camping in the pure nature surrounded by a waterfall and clean river water? Sounds pretty good.
Kravica Waterfall will give you a completely different experience of Herzegovina. This natural beauty in the hot summertime will make you feel that you are in Amazonia. Combination of sun, green and yellow colour, untouched nature and cold water will impress you for sure. And it is the water that will serve you the most when the sun comes on top of the sky and the temperatures become really high. The cold water of the Trebižat River will give you perfect refreshment and the best thing is that you can swim over to the waterfall and stand underneath it. In combination with cold lemonade or beer and the best view that you can imagine you will be amazed for sure.
The wider view of this area
If you are going to Kravica Waterfall than you can be sure that you will have much more to visit besides this waterfall. There are two smaller waterfalls close to it, Koćuša and Čeveljuša, where you can find nice local restaurants that are offering you local specialities. For those who are interested in the cultural and historical heritage of Hercegovina, there is the Archaeological Museum in Humac, one of the best in this area. Besides that, we recommend you to visit The Fortress of Herceg Stjepan in Ljubuški. This old fortress will bring you back to the past in the medieval age when people fought in an old fashioned way.
All of this makes Kravica perfect for a one day trip for all the tourists that are coming to Mostar. This kind of trips can be organized for you by Hit Booker.
