The Mount Velez Region is located in the south-central part of the Herzegovina region of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The three largest communities in the Mount Velez Region are Blagaj, which is located near the source of the Buna River; Nevesinje, which is located in a secluded mountain valley; and Podvelezje which is situated below the summit of Mount Velez.



Blagaj has a fascinating history and offers a variety of authentic cultural experiences. Blagaj has a seperate chapter in this guide.The entire region is a rich agricultural area that not only grows delicious fruits and vegetables, but also highly sought herbs and aromatic plants.



To the east side of the towering peaks of Velez Mountain lies the highland community called Nevesinje. The vast fields, dotted with beautiful lakes and rivers, are a nature lovers paradise. Ideal for hiking, walking, mountain biking and fly fishing this area is just beginning to realize its tourism potential. The ancient villages are not only preserved in their original form but are amongst the few highland communities that are still thriving in the Herzegovina region. Nevesinje offers a wonderful off the beaten track break just an hours drive from Mostar. Seek and one shall find.
