Things To Do in Ethno Village Herceg in Winter ( Medugorje, Herzegovina)+ Giveaway Winner Announcement
1. Sightseeing and taking photographs
You can visit this place just to stroll around and take photographs. Lots of people do it. This is a great location for photography. The picaresque stone houses make for a great background. The village complex is very neat and green. There are small creeks, fountains and small lakes that will keep any water lover happy. Moreover, the vineyard (yes, this village has its own vineyard) is quite beautiful.
2. Dinning or enjoying a cup of coffee
Dinning is definitely a nice experience. This restaurant offers an excellent selection of means and desserts. You can also just stop by for a visit. Enjoying a cup of coffee or tea while soaking in the views is a great way to relax. I totally understand the rising popularity of rural tourism and tourist villages. People want some piece and quiet, a return to a more simple way of life but still with an excess to luxury. These kind of places are popular with a good reason.
3. Visiting the chapel
There is a lovely chapel inside of the village. It hasn't been officially registered yet, so I don't think you can have a proper church wedding ceremony there but you can probably have an improvised one. I'm not sure about the legal details and because they might change anytime, it is best you ask for yourself. I mean if you are interested in having a wedding or some event organized here. I really like the art in this chapel. The paintings are so beautiful and expressive. I was actually here when the first sketches were made. I'm not entirely sure by whom, I'll need to check that. I always feel in my element when surrounded by art. I wonder why. :)
4. Staying in the hotel or one of the stone houses
If you want to experience this place fully, probably the best way to do is to stay overnight. I have never spent the night here, so I don't have a hotel experience to share. Maybe I'll do a stayaction some day, and then I'll let you know how I liked it. I do imagine it must be a nice place to stay at.
5. Observing the domestic animals
This village is also a home to some domestic animals. I'm not sure could I call this area a petting zoo or not. Most of the domestic animals here are different species of birds. There are some donkeys, but they are not petting donkeys. They might let you pet them if they like you, but don't push it. Donkeys are stubborn and they don't like everyone. If they don't like, they might bite. I grow up with donkeys so I think I know what I'm talking about. Donkeys and horses usually respond well to me, so well they frightened me a few times by running after me but I also know when not to push my luck.
