This town on the west bank of the Neretva River was once the
home of what is thought to be the largest Roman military
camp in the region.
Mogorjelo was built in the late 3rd century and
represents one of the most beautiful examples of the late
antique architecture in the area. Hugged by greenery, Villa
Rustica has a summer theatre stage and a Villa Rustica
restaurant with some great fish specialties.
Next to it you will find Horse Club „Vranac“. The
club is located near the Neretva River and has over 20
horses. It is open daily for visits or horse-riding. An hour
ride costs 20 KM for adults, 5 KM for children.
The ancient settlement of Gabela was a very important
trade center during the period between 15th and 18th century
and is believed to have been a significant settlement long
before that. There is an interesting theory of Robert
Salinas Price who while studying Iliad and Odyssey developed
a theory that the Troy War took place in the Valley of the
Neretva River and that the Old Town of Gabela is Ilios –
the capital city of the State of Troy.
An unforgettable experience not to be missed, especially for
fans ofextreme sports, but also for all others who wish to
experience direct contact with nature, is canoe safari on
the Trebižat River.
The river is very calm and quiet at the beginning of
excursion routes, and later becomes fast and exciting.
During the trip you will see a lot of fish and birds as well
as beautiful travertine waterfalls.
