tekkeTwo years ago on 3rd May, reis-ul-ulema Mustafa Cerić and Turkish konzul in Mostar, Tolga Bermek, officially opened the reconstructed tekke in Blagaj near Mostar.

The project of reconstruction of 600 years old Tekke in Blagaj was the Islamic Community (IZ) in BiH, and the Turkish agency “Fidan Tours’ money was invested in restoration. In addition, Fidan took the right to use Tekke for 33 years.

This region characterizes the diversity of its above-ground and underground waters. The source of the Buna is one of the largest and most beautiful in Europe.

It is the finest example of an underground karst river. It flows out of a 200m cliff wall and single-handedly creates the Buna River. Unsurprisingly, the Ottoman sultan was impressed, and ordered a tekija to be built right next to it. This 16th century house/monastery was built for the Dervish cults and is still one of the most mystical places in all of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is open to visitors all year round and serves cold drinks, tea and Turkish coffee in a beautiful garden overlooking the source of the River.

The region is also known for the diversity of its flora and a number of endemic species. At lower altitudes there are many evergreen plant and deciduous thicket species, while at higher altitudes in the hills there is sparse forest. Fertile cultivable land is suitable for the agriculture typical of the Mediterranean climate.
