Komin

At a distance of only 7 km from the sea, the small town of Komin, with its 1200 inhabitants, sits embedded in the fascinating landscape of the Neretva River. The inhabitants have built their houses in terraces in the slopes of the Donja Gora mountain, which boasts one of the most fertile landscapes of the Neretva River. The Donja Gora mountain and its sparsely vegetated peaks watch over Komin. The parish Church of Sveti Ante is also perched above the stone houses. It was built in 1782 and its exposed position was intended to scare off the advancing Turks. In 1908 a larger parish church was erected on the foundations of its predecessor, which was consecrated in 1924.

The vegetation around this busy resort, whose inhabitants are always bustling about in the streets and alleys, is characterized by a mixture of barren mountaintops, dense cypress forests and Mediterranean palm trees that line the waterfront promenade. The coastal highway runs along the southern bank of the river where locals once used to sell their goods to passing customers. Even today, you will find some stalls selling oils, honey, wine and regional farmed products.

Visitors can dine in one of the few rustic taverns along the main road and in the surrounding villages of the Neretva River. Since there are no beaches in Komin, most tourists spend their time cycling, hiking, taking rafting trips on the Neretva River or day trips to the Peljesac Peninsula or Dubrovnik.
