Welcome to Metković

Posted by on: 17/04/2014

Dear guests, dear friends!

Welcome to Metković, the second largest town of Dubrovnik-Neretva County, and the administrative, economic and cultural centre of the Neretva valley.

Where hills merge with a fertile valley, where a green river and mystical swamps combine with clear blue sea, there is Neretva valley and Metković. You will feel the call of the wild, get to enjoy juicy fruit, especially the tangerines and have a good time!

Located in the valley of the Neretva River, open towards the sea, Metković offers great possibilities for enjoying your vacation. Traditionally turned towards agriculture because of the rich river delta known for its plantations of tangerines and other fruit and vegetables, it is a natural phenomenon and you can also enjoy boat rides (photo safari) and traditional specialties (eel and frog).

The remains of the ancient city of Narona, today's Vid are 4 km southwest of Metković, where the Archaeological museum Narona is built, as the first "in situ" museum in Croatia. Built on the locality of an antique temple dedicated to the 1st Roman emperor Augustus, it shows a unique collection of antique statues made sometime in the 1st century B.C. The Archaeological museum Narona is a unique and unavoidable destination for all lovers of culture, art, history and archaeology.

The best example of a rich and diverse bird population of the Neretva delta can be observed in the ornithological collection of Natural History Museum Metković. Unfortunately, the Dalmatian pelican, griffon duck and marbled teal are gone, but even today we can see bitterns and ferruginous ducks nesting in the Neretva delta. The delta is an important resting place for millions of migratory birds but also a popular destination for many nature lovers.

In Predolac cave you can meet the unique cave shellfish "Congeria", a living fossil, a tertiary relic and unique species to the Dinarid Alps. You can also meet many other animal species living exclusively underground, and those who live in surface waters. All this in one locality that's unique in the world will provide a unique experience to all those visiting this area.

Of interesting events to note are the city features. During May there is the traditional folklore event "Na Neretvu misečina pala", or "Moonlight falls on Neretva", while July is reserved for traditional mullet fishing - Cipolijada, and a contest of jumping into the Neretva. There's also the Roman Night in Narona, which will transport you back in time to Roman times, where gladiator fights and slave markets were prominent. A part of the Day of the Neretva Principality in August is getting to know traditional crafts and village games, watch exciting contests and costume plays. The traditional Neretva boat marathon, "Maraton lađa", where around 30 crews from the Neretva valley and abroad compete, is held on the 2nd Saturday in August.

In addition to rich cultural, historical and natural heritage, you will enjoy our gastronomy and wines, photo safari tours through the untouched swamp, and first of all the kindness and cordiality of our residents.

Welcome to the city of history, culture, nature and sports - experience Metković in your own way!

U skladu sa novonastalom situacijom i odlukama  vezano za sprječavanje širenja zaraze koronavirusom mnoge ustanove su zatvorene za posjetitelje.  

Među njima su i kulturne ustanove, no napredak tehnologije omogućavaju nam da iz sigurnosti doma posjetimo muzeje i izložbe. 

Iako je Arheološki muzej Narona do daljnjega zatvoren za rad s posjetiteljima na  web stranici ili slijedeći navedenu poveznicu donosimo Vam 

3D VIRTUALNU ŠETNJU gdje možete razgledati cijeli stalni postav na 3 etaže.
