This quaint, sunny southern town full of striking Ottoman architecture is a true playground for those intrigued by anthropology, archaeology and history.



The area has been settled for at least 15,000 years as evidenced by the markings in Badanj Cave, which experts have dated 12000-16000 BC. Throughout its long history, Stolac has been an outstandingly cultured town. No other town in Bosnia and Herzegovina has produced such a rich array of intellectuals, artists, poets and leaders. Strolling through Stolac to the sound of the rushing Bregava and the many songbirds, it is easy to imagine the inspiration felt by its many generations of extraordinary personalities.



It's a great place to stroll around, eat figs, drink the tasty local wine, or dig into one of those delicious pomegranates that grow in every yard. It's also a good base from which to explore the region by bicycle. The town has a sleepy, Mediterranean air to it and is lined with caf's along the crystal-clear Bregava River. The Bregava is a favorite spot for youths to swim and dive and one will often find most of the town near the water during the hot and dry summers.



The centre enjoys lush trees and foliage, with unique pines darting into the skyline near the ancient old town fortress of Vidoska (built in the 14th century). The Bregava has made Stolac and the surrounding region (called Dubrava) one of the most fertile areas in the country. Vegetables and fruit from here seem to taste just that bit better. Zilavka and Blatina wines produced from the harvests of the local vineyards are great so the vineyards should be paid a visit.
