Vrelo Bune, Blagaj, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Situated on the Buna river, Vrelo Bune is a unique natural and architectural ensemble. Springs that feed the river and stream from the caustic caverns are famous for producing exceptionally clean and cold water. Buildings from stone have been built in Blagaj since the 15th century, therefore the site is culturally significant.
By the source of the Buna river also stands the Blagaj Tekke – a monastery, that was built in the 17th century. The residential houses have a signature feature – their patios and courtyards are meant to ensure privacy and isolate from the outside world. Besides the historic architecture, stunning rocks and river, Blagaj is also home to numerous endemic species and diverse flora.
