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.

Tito's Bunker in Konjic

Rafting on the Neretva River

Rafting is an extremely adventurous sport and one of the most popular forms of active relaxation in Konjic. The activity of boating down the wild rivers in large rubber boats has a positive effect on interpersonal relations because it requires teamwork. Rafting on wild rivers is a challenging job for skippers and organizers, but for the ones who choose it, rafting is the main entertainment.
