Old Town Vidoški – Stolac

During Ottoman rule, the best fortified town in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Every year a unique event - medieval fair, is being held here.

Old Town Vidoški was an old town located on the hill above the city of Stolac, Bosnia and Herzegovina, on the left bank of the river Bregava. Medieval Town Vidoški was mentioned in 1275. and in 1444. which show us his old history. But in this area archaeologist have found evidence of old cities even from antic times. This city was attacked and retaken many times in the past. Also, it was rebuilt, upgraded, established and upgraded, abandoned and resumed. Finally, today’s appearance is the work of the Austro-Hungarian army that demolished it in 1888 and reconstructed it in accordance with its military-strategic needs.

Old Town Vidoški was listed as National monument of culture of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2003. Besides beautiful walls, rich history, amazing view from it Old Town Vidoški has something more to offer. Every year, in midsummer, there is a medieval fair called Stolačka tarča (literally translated: Stolac’s target).

Some of them are dancing, some are singing, some will teach you how to swear and use a bow and arrow.

    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!
