Eco-tourists also flock to the area to experience its diverse flora and fauna, as well as the numerous walking and boating opportunities it offers.

A Diverse Ecosystem

.Comprised of a riverside wetland and meadows covering 40km, the Neretva Delta is separated by several channels and springs. Within its 2,500 hectares, there are 650 types of salt-tolerant vegetation that provide food and grazing for waterfowl, wading birds, and amphibians. The Neretva River serves as the primary transport corridor for agriculture and tourism in the region, transporting over 51 million tonnes of cargo each year.
