Wonderful shots, Meda.

That stone work has surely survived many years. A truly impressive sight.

Beautiful archways and the amount of work that was put into making all the walls and bridges with stone is amazing.

I think this village is worth to visit. Very graceful buildings and of course you capture them artistically.

Massive stone houses and walls which have survived many generations. What is it about stone that makes it so aesthetic. It is great to see new additions, lovely, simple doors and wrought iron gates all fitting in beautifully. When enlarging the pictures one can see the stone work, how it is done in a practical manner to use small stones to fit in-between and also all shapes and sizes. It is such a beautiful place.

They are beautiful! I love stone constructions, they feel natural. How far is Počitelj-Neretva River from Sarajevo?
