Delta of the Neretva river
Neretva runs in Bosnia; in the third part of its course, the river reaches an area sometimes called “California of Bosnia-Herzegovina”. The river completes there the last thirty kilometers of its course by forming a gigantic alluvial delta of 196 km², before throwing itself in the Adriatic Sea close to Ploče in Croatia.

The flooded grounds, through which one circulates on board flat-bottomed boats, were formerly unhealthy marshes. They were transformed into fertile fields, dedicated to the culture of the fruits. The delta of Neretva looks like orchard of Croatia. The summer, the country-women sell along the road of fishings and with the grape to the unforgettable taste so much they are gorged with sun.
