Herzegovina is one of the most beautiful regions in this part of Europe which keeps its authentic spirit being at the same mountainous, flat, coastal and continental. On relatively small area we can find a lot of relief and geological forms, landscapes, variety of flora and fauna and unique historical and cultural monuments.
