Hello Steemian, it's seem quiet a while that I didn't write about my trip to the Balkan. So today let me bring you guys my sharing of the traveling experience to a small town in Bosina call Pocitelj.
Pocitelj is located in the urban area near Mostar, the second major city in Bosina. It was not such a hotspot for the tourists and I just discovered the place once I noticed its amazing scenery on the web. The public transport in Bosina was not very well developed outside the capital area. I could hardly find the way to get to the place except taking the international bus, for which would only run the route twice a day.
Here was the 'bus station' and you could see it's obviously just the roadside everywhere instead of a real station.
There was a little way from the station to the Pocitelj village. I hardly found the entrance to the village and the building here was built in the Islam style as once the land was ruled by the Ottoman Empire in the past.
The village was built along the hillside and I could easily get up to the hilltop for the view of the amazing scenery.
I arrived quite early and there was no people in the street, even the shops were still closed. As well, I could meet no foreigners here except the locals .
I went straight up to the hilltop by climbing up the stairs which was somehow nicely paved. The view was beautiful even I haven't make it to the top.
It took me some time to reach the first fortress here. It was once the fortification guarding the town but was almost totally destroyed during the Bosina War. Now, what the site remained was just a ruin.
I have been traveled for some European countries and mostly I could see the repaired or fixed heritages. Instead, here in Bosina, mostly I could see was the destroyed stuff or buildings. I wonder if the government intentionally didn't make the maintenance to remind people for the bloody history. I was feeling so sad when I was visiting such 'realistic' site.
The Mosque in the town would rang the bell and I could hear they were praying with the sacred music. The music did make one relax and even meditate for a while.
This was the fortress I have just visited. I left and headed to the highest point in the hill for the better view. But in fact the view here was already amazing and gorgeous.
This was a little kitty I met when I was climbing up to the hilltop. It was so adorable that I couldn't help to feed it with the cat food I was always carrying.
