It was at Jablanica that Tito and the partisans, burdened
with 4,000 wounded others, won the unlikely Battle of the
Neretva during World War II.
The blown-up bridge that the partisans used to trick the
Nazis still hangs from the high cliffs as a reminder of one
of the partisans' greatest victories. In addition, there is
a war memorial on the peak of Mount Prenj (2,155 meters),
dedicated to Tito and the brave men and women who climbed
and crossed this cruel - and beautiful – mountain in the
most trying of times. The War Museum next to the
bridge exhibits pictures and tells the story of this famous
war episode. An old German bunker on the east side of the
river has now been converted into a restaurant and café. In
addition to the WWII battle there is a display of the
ethnographic artefacts from this area.
