Among the numerous (positive) surprises that Serbia is able to give, the Kravica Falls, or Kravice, deserve a special mention.
A real oasis, surrounded by greenery. A truly incredible natural and landscape show, which still retains a wild character. Obviously net of tourists who, more or less, arrive more and more numerous, especially in July and August.
Kravica Falls are not high at all. The beauty and charm lies in their amphitheatrical arrangement, around the body of water, surrounded by vines, agnus-castus, fig and poplar trees.
A suggestive place, where you can try to swim. Keep in mind that the water is really cold and, far from the summer months, you will have to take a lot of courage to dive! Instead, you will be able to see the more daring go under the same falls. Try to follow them 🙂
Photos are a ritual. And it could not be otherwise.
All around, you will find some kiosks and refreshment points. There are public toilets, fairly clean, changing rooms and deck chairs. Of course, you can bring something from home, and set up a picnic (always respect the nature around you!)
A bike ride. Or a canoe ride. These could be the worthy conclusion of a perfect day.
The place can only be reached on foot. It is located just over 40 kilometers south of Mostar, passing through Medjugorje, not far from the border with Croatia.
The road is not the best but the indications are not lacking.
Dubrovnik and Split are both about 130 kilometers away. Just from Split you can tackle the most comfortable route, most of which on the A1 motorway (for a fee); exit at Vrgorac and cross the border into Bosnia and Herzegovina. From Split sui arrives at the Kravica Falls in about 110 ‘. From Dubrovnik, however, it takes about 2 and a half hours to get to your destination.
As soon as you arrive, you will find ample parking. You walk for about 15 minutes through a path and arrive at your destination. You can also use a comfortable train that takes you directly to the falls, from the parking lot. It costs 1 € per person.
