    Very Relaxing Boat Trip
    Went on a 90 minutes cruise along the river in the traditional boat. Plenty of bird life to be seen. Lovely scenery, surrounded by mountains as the river cuts through a valley. Lots of green foliage abound the sides of the river bearing fruit. The land around the river is used for growing many food types including figs and tangerines. It is possible to travel the river from the Bosnian boarder to the Adriatic, a distance of 25 kilometres. If you like a cruise, well worth considering this one.

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
    Took the train from Sarajevo to Mostar. Part of the journey travels along this stunning river and valley. Blue water, contained in a series of dams, until Mostar where the river runs free. A really beautiful part of the world.

    A beautiful green river
    The Neretva flows through a lot of Bosnia, so you can see it in various places, but in Mostar near the Old Bridge is definitely a well known one. The water is a beautiful green color, mostly caused by copper mineral deposits in the area, but it makes for a wonderful if you're nearby. The river itself isn't really an attraction, mostly too cold and swift to swim in except for some locals. You can take a boat ride on it; we saw several going by during our time in Mostar. You can't really miss it, but it's definitely worth seeking out and admiring.

    Visually stunning river
    River separates the 2 main areas in Mostar, with a beautiful green colour it’s extremely photogenic from above or a river level. I got to see river on a nice sunny day from many different angles and all were amazing. Some of my best photos of Mostar are of this river and loved sitting by it and having lunch. During summer would be great to see the people diving of the bridge.

Incredible untouched scenes of nature. Photo is taken between Mostar and Konjic at the source of river Neretvica. River that ends up in the main river Neretva.

Neretva is 230 km long and most of its course flows through Bosnia. It flows into the Adriatic Sea in Croatia. It is recognizable by the specific color of the water. According to the scientific portal Science Blurtit from Great Britain, Neretva is the coldest river in the world.

The green color of this river is beautiful and makes almost any picture look great. It centers a lot of history.

Turquoise water with endless bridges old and modern the river maintains a cool temperature of 8 degrees all year round, the feature along the river is the old Bridge Mostar which attracts many tourists as the view from the bridge is fantastic as well as the bridge jumping into the river

Not sure why this is an attraction. The river is nice and clear. Mostar and this part of the river is located in a picturesque position in the valley, so it does look good in photos, with or without the Old Bridge.

The river is beautiful. Get away from the tourist bridge and see position yourself downriver to watch the water go by. A much better experience
