Old Town of Pocitelj [Through My Lens Nr. 58]


Pocitelj presents one of few urban ensembles in Bosnia and Herzegovina preserved in their integrity to the present time developed through the several phases of the history, beginning with the medieval period. When you stand here, inside the walls, surrounded by so much history, you start to wonder about the place, of what was here before, and who stood in these spots. There is quite a lot of the old structure left here, and the main tower is very much accessible. From many places, you can gaze out of the windows and look into the surrounding nature and river Neretva, which is flowing beside the town. A full three part travel series to Pocitelj can be found by clicking here.

  4. Was für ein schöner Platz und herrliche Aussicht. Ja, diese Fragen stelle ich mir auch immer....wenn die Mauern nur sprechen könnten, was würden sie für Geschichten preisgeben.

    Tolle Fotos!

    Liebe Grüsse und eine tolle Woche

  18. This is special ... the town seems so peaceful, but hides a history of destruction and pillage. These pictures, Mersad, should be published in National Geographic. Beautifully done ...

  25. the history and ancient buildings in Europe is just amazing. In Australia, well the "European" history is so young, we don't have anything like it here. Our history is in our ancient land formations and aboriginal culture. Have a fabulous week.
