UK newspaper The Guardian compiled the list of 20 of the best campsites across Europe accessible by public transport, and the list includes Blagaj in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It’s unusual enough to find a campsite in the middle of a town, but to find one in such a prime spot on the banks of a river is a double bonus”, wrote author of the article, Dixe Wills.  

The Guardian reported that the small River Camp ‘Aganovac’ sat beside a bridge over the Buna River. “It’s shaded by willows and the river is on hand for a cooling dip, as it stays chilled even in the height of summer. A kitchen is provided for campers, though there’s a good selection of restaurants in town, which also has an early Ottoman Dervish house and a medieval hamam to visit”, the author wrote.

For a longer walk, the Blagaj Fort is a 40-minute stroll away and provides fantastic views of the Buna and Neretva valleys. “Take the train to Mostar and then the 10, 11 or 12 bus from Spanish Square near the eastern bus station to Blagaj”, Wills concluded.
