Konjic description

Konjic is a town and municipality located in Herzegovina-Neretva region of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (one of the two political entities that compose Bosnia and Herzegovina). It is located in northern Herzegovina, around 50 km southwest of Sarajevo. It is a mountainous and heavily wooded area. The municipality extends on both sides of the Neretva River (the largest karst river in the Dinaric Alps in the entire eastern part of the Adriatic basin). The total length is 230 km, of which 208 km are in Bosnia and Herzegovina, while the final 22 km are in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County of Croatia. The area near the town is believed to be settled up to 4000 years ago, and settlements around 2000 years ago by Illyrian tribes travelling upstream along the Neretva river have been found. The town, being part of the Bosnian kingdom, was incorporated into the Ottoman Empire, of which one of the lasting feature for the town is the Ottoman-inspired bridge (Konjička Stara Ćuprija), and later into the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

The Konjička Stara Ćuprija (Old Bridge, 1682), was built over six slightly pointed stone arches. It is the best preserved Ottoman bridge in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The arches were destroyed by the retreating German army in March 1945. The bridge was rebuilt in its original state between 2003 and 2009. The bridge is now proclaimed a National Monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The natural heritage of Konjic includes the upper course of the Neretva river (Upper Neretva), a vast area around the Neretva, numerous streams and well-springs, three major glacial lakes near the river, one artificial lake (Jablaničko), mountains and forests, and native flora and fauna. All this natural heritage together with the cultural heritage represent rich and valuable resources for the country as well as Europe. The Upper Neretva has water of Class I purity and is almost certainly the coldest river water in the world, often as low as 7–8 °C (45–46 °F) in the summer months.
