An hour from Split and Dubrovnik, the town of Opuzen is located in a beautiful region of southern Dalmatia. It is named after the fortress "Fort Opus", built by the Republic of Venice in 1684. Part of its ruins remains to this day and tells the story of ancient times.
Located 12 kilometers upstream from the mouth of the Neretva River, Opuzen lies in a strategic position. As early as the 14th century, the Republic of Ragusa, a sovereign republic centered in the city of Dubrovnik, maintained the main markets for salt and other shops in this small city. Today, Opuzen, like many small towns in Croatia, loses a lot of young people emigrating to larger cities or going abroad. After years of studying or working outside the home, they often lack a reason or opportunity to return.

I was throwing a birthday party for my kid and the beach was the best place, it could accommodate a number of people and also the bouncing castle. The kids loved the whale talk and the turtle race games. We had so much fun
I was in fire need of an active vacation. I visited this place and enjoyed bike riding and hiking. The scent from the greenery was refreshing and cool. I had a great vacation here.
The history of the place is fascinating and we had the opportunity of getting to learn of the history of the place on our visit to the place.

Ston has great nature parks to visit with your family. I visited one of the nature parks with my family and enjoyed watching and feeding wildlife. My kids didn't want to leave the place. Its so beautiful.
I never thought that I will love this place.I really enjoyed wind surfing with my friends. The temperatures there are just okay for a stay.
I really enjoyed the boat tours and water sports. I got a chance to make new friends who taught me how to play well. Opozen is a place I would consider revisiting.
