Discover the city where East meets West. An exhilarating journey full of contrasts – rugged coastal area gradually melting into fertile greens of Neretva Valley full of scented citrus fruit and kiwi plantations.

This truly is a place where East meets West.
On our way to Dubrovnik, we will have a brief visit to the village Počitelj which serves as a reminder of 4.5 centuries of Eastern cultural influence in these territories.
