Chapter Summary

Konjic is a pleasant little town on the River Neretva, halfway between Sarajevo and Mostar on the main North-South artery from the Balkan interior to the coast of the Adriatic Sea. This chapter describes how this town grew from hamlet on the highway to Muslim town and treat the history of its buildings, as well as its transformation through the turbulence of the 20th century. The basin of Konjic is surrounded by the highest mountains of Bosnia-Hercegovina, Prenj (2102 m) and Bjelašnica (2067 m). The construction of the railway from Sarajevo to Mostar and the Dalmatian harbour of Ploce again revived the importance of Konjic as station on a main road. The Repovacka Mosque is apparently the oldest in town. The Neretva Bridge of Konjic ranked among the best works of Ottoman civil architecture in the entire Balkans.
