In the South [Part 3/3]: The River Trebizat and Lunch

We finish off our journey to the south on the river Trebizat. Trebizat is 51 km (30 miles) long and is the second largest losing stream in Bosnia and Herzegovina that drains into the underground and reappears several times. In terms of length, it comes right after the Trebišnjica river which is the largest river of this kind in the world and also a tributary of the Neretva watershed.

We also had lunch on the river in the Restaurant/Motel called "Most", which translated means "Bridge". The lunch was excellent, but we had to wait some time, before our order arived, since the place was jam packed.

This gave me some time to explore the surroundings. Enjoy!

This is a multi-part series, other parts include:
Part One: Mogorjelo, the Roman country house
Part Two: The Kravice Waterfalls
Part Three: The River Trebizat and Lunch

The Trebizat river is the only underground river in Europe which sinks into the ground and emerges again a total of 9 times. This is a river with nine names, full of travertines, with amazing landscapes and a meandering stream, which waters the surrounding fertile fields.



 A sign, letting the drivers know, that they are crossing the river Trebizat.




While the others waited for lunch, I took a walk around the motel to see what I could find.


There is a nice park area here.




Another small restaurant is located here, and it belongs to the one we were visiting. This one here is not currently used.



 This river flows through an area of remarkable ecological value, hosting protected areas such as the travertine-formation around Kravice Waterfall.


You can even freshen yourself up on the cold river stream.


It was time to head back for lunch.


Everything was delicious.



We payed our bill and headed back home. It was a wonderful day spent in the south.

  9. Fine photos of an interesting river side community. Your food shots look very "American" with fries and cheese cover food.

  10. A river that goes underground and then reappears nine times is like a magical part of a fantasy book! It's beautiful! And so is the restaurant and its surrounds. Love the photo of the round stones and the wooden wheels!
