Konjic
Konjic is attractive far more by its abundance of natural beauty that completely surrounds the town. The Neretva River running through the centre and Prenj Mountain hovering behind dominate Konjic.

The old town is quite nice to stroll through. The center of town is rather pleasant too, with stunning views in every direction. The main street is often closed to vehicle traffic and is filled with the young and old walking, hanging out in café's or selling their wares along the riverside markets. People in Konjic are very easy going and friendly so feel free to ask someone for directions or to engage in some small talk. Since the early 1900s, Konjic has come to be known for its woodcarvers. The craft developed a commercial dimension during the Austro-Hungarian occupation in the early 20th century. Before World War II Konjic had a couple of dozen woodcarving businesses, who sold their elaborately-carved heirloom furniture and boxes within the Austro-Hungarian empire and beyond.

The Nikšić family is one of the few families left that continue to pass on the family trade from father to son. They now have two shops located next to each other: Brothers Nikšić and Rukotvorine Their work is mainly done in European walnut, cherry, and maple. Most of their products are custom-made to order. The epicenter of the Konjic tourism offer is most certainly the area around Boracko Lake and the valley of Glaveticevo. This partial glacier lake has bungalows, a hotel and camping facilities. Most of the outdoor activities begin from this region: hiking, camping, rafting, kayaking, village tourism, canoeing, mountain biking and even paragliding.
