Photographer's Note

Summer residency of Herzegovina ruler Herceg Stjepan Kosaca is located in hills above river Buna spring, town of Blagaj, just south of Mostar. He ruled todays area of Herzegovina and some areas of Dalmatia and today's Montenegro. He took title Herzog ( German for duke) after marrying a German princess, and after his death Ottoman Empire gave this province a name Hercegovina.
He ruled from 1435 to 1466.
The view from this castle, that was recently partially restored is breathtaking, overlooking a big part of south Mostar field.
