Makarska is a settlement named after the Riviera. It’s a holiday resort in beautiful area. A promenade fringed by palms runs along behinds its 1.5km long pebbled beach. The horseshoe bay of the harbor is protectively embraced by St. Peter and – Peninsulas. The high mountain behind the settlement, Biokovo gives protection to Makarska. The peak, always cloaked in clouds doesn’t let rainclouds through just like the landmass protecting the French Riviera. St. Mark’s Church from the 18th century stands on the main square. The building framed by green blooming trees stands on a hill. It is dwarfed by the high mountain in the background though. Makarska was once the trading center of salt mines in Bosnia-Herzegovina. This activity ensured welfare and jobs for the dwellers of the town for centuries. The place of commerce was gradually taken over by tourism which today provides most of its income. In peak season, four or five ferries a day depart from here to the island of Brac. Ferries take people from the neighboring --, from Plotch to the – peninsula. Nature lovers and mountain climbers may go on pleasant hikes to the Biokovo Mountain. At Neum, a 4km long seaside lane belongs to Bosnia-Herzegovina. This extremely special landscape reminiscent of Asian rice paddies is the estuary of the Neretva. We can see a colorful white water land enclosed by mountains and hills. This little green area broken by streams is the moor of Hutovo.
