Počitelj was a Surprise

It’s a very small town somewhat near Mostar and while you need to drive to see it, a to visit Počitelj is a nice short trip. While ravished in the war, the town has been very well rebuilt and is apparently home to craftsmen, like stone carvers. You can see one of these guys in a promotional clip on the Bosnia Herzegovina tourism site.
There isn’t a tremendous amount to do there besides climb the old fortress and wander through a town that is distinctly different with its white stone (as opposed to red tile) roofs, but it’s really pretty. The Neretva River (which flows through Mostar as well) takes a delightful bend by the town and while really damned cold, if the day is hitting 40C like now, when I’m writing this, it would be a nice spot for a swim.
