Kravice, When we decided to visit Bosnia and Herzegovina by car during our vacations, attracted by its cultural mix and by its "openness" to tourism after years of war, we never thought that in this small country we were going to come across so many corners of sublime beauty. where rivers, lakes and waterfalls are the protagonists.

Cities such as Jajce, Sarajevo and Mostar, are part of the route during an itinerary through this country of the Balkans, but we must know some other less popular nclaves in the tourist circuits, but that make a simple visit to them, enough so that the trip as a whole is worth it.

We had visited the Jajce waterfalls, spectacular in terms of location, but the ones we visited in the Herzegovina area, in the south of the country, took our breath away. We are talking about the Kravice Falls.

These waterfalls, located in the hottest area of ​​the country, are an authentic oasis, or rather a "spa" in which to cool off from the intense summer heat, surrounded by a dreamlike environment.

The Trebizat River, as it passes through the area, leaves us one of the most impressive natural spectacles in Bosnia, and although its dimensions do not reach the beauty of the Plitvice Lakes Natural Park, located in neighboring Croatia, it is not out of place at all.

The Kravice Waterfalls, with a height of more than 25 meters, have a fall at different points of the rocks, which makes it form different branches, all of them, ending in a beautiful turquoise lake.

With more than 10 “ramifications”, enjoying a visit to the Kravice waterfalls is an obligation during a visit to Bosnia, and its location just 40 kilometers from Mostar makes them accessible from this city and even from Croatia.

How can it be otherwise, the water in this natural park is quite cold, which is appreciated in summer. We can swim in the lake and access some of the breakers of the waterfall.

There is a parking area, so we should not have problems to leave our vehicle with total peace of mind.
