There is barely a town in the Herzegovina region that is not situated alongside the river banks, of the river ‘ Trebišnjica’. Trebinje, nestled in the heart of the Bosnian mountains, is no exception, oﬀering welcome relief from the heat. Trebinje has an important history, which is evident from churches perched on top of the mountains that act as a stunning backdrop to the town. When standing just outside the main square you can see buildings representing three different religions. Visiting here is like going back in time, everything you see makes you want to take a deep breath and forget about the stress of everyday life.
Here you can meander through the old walled town and walk along the river bank, visit the local, colourful market in the main square and then enjoy a coffee or ice-cream in the main piazza, sitting under the incredible beautiful Platan trees. The tree camouflaged trunks is where the design came from for the military uniform.
Some of the cafés do not serve food, but they don’t mind if you purchase a delicious pastry or ‘burek’, from the bakery and enjoy it with your coffee. In the summer months the square is often buzzing with live music. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in Trebinje and they are so affordable, with lively bars running along the river edge that serve from daylight to the early hours. A place our ‘teenage boys’ enjoyed hanging out without us!
For the whole family why not spend the day at the Aqua park, with the Jurassic mountains of Trebinje as a backdrop, opened in 2017 it is very reasonable compared to EU prices. Click on this link to see more information and tips.
