Blagaj was certainly the highlight of my trip to Bosnia. It is a sacred Muslim site in an inspiring natural setting. The Dervish Madrasa (perhaps comparable to a Christian monastery) can be visited and is built in the Turkish Baroque style. Most impressive, however, is the the river leading to the cave and the cliff above, covered with a hanging tree. Historically vultures used to nest here. You can eat traditional Bosniak food at one of the many nearby restaurants.

I think this place is a special representation of Bosnian life. On the other hand, its authenticity seems to have been largely compromised.
