The Dervish Monastery Off a Cliff

By Linda Tancs

Blagaj Tekija is a 15th-century, Dervish monastery outside Mostar in Bosnia & Herzegovina. It’s tucked into a limestone cliff face overlooking the emerald-green source of the Buna River. Both a picturesque tourist attraction and a holy place, services are still regularly held there. The complex includes tombs, prayer rooms, a courtyard and an old Turkish bath. Alongside it is a cave; short boat trips explore the subterranean passageways. Get there via the local bus from Mostar.
