Neretva - One of the largest rivers of the eastern part of the Adriatic

The Neretva Delta

As the coastal road approaches the Neretva Delta from the north there’s a tourist association-sponsored sign hovering above the Magistrala. “The Valley of Life”, it says. Looking down on the valley, with its lush green strips of cultivated land, it’s easy to see why. Formerly an extensive reedy swamp, it has largely been transformed into Croatia’s principal region for the cultivation of citrus fruits. The delta remains primarily a wetland environment; the orchard areas are criss-crossed by irrigation channels, while densely-reeded areas of marshland encroach on the scene from the sides.
