The northernmost town of Herzegovina has never been either „true Herzegovina“ or „true Bosnia“, but something unique and genuine. Showered with warm Herzegovinian sun it welcomed settlers from all around the world, gave them nice home, took care of them, fed them and educated them and they in return gave it their love – they would install in all the buildings and streets they created.
