The Neretva Valley in southern Croatia, which is just a 90-minute drive from Dubrovnik, has been named the ‘Valley of Life’ – and for good reason.

The Neretva river, which flows throw the valley and is one of Croatia’s most valuable freshwater resources, is the largest river in the eastern part of the Adriatic basin and is recognised for its natural beauty and diversity of its landscape.

The area is known for its range and quality of fruit and vegetables, supplying much of Croatia with watermelons and mandarin oranges during the season. Locals call the area the ‘Croatian California’ for that reason.

Every fall the Neretva valley comes to a life in a special way, as the mandarin orange season starts.

Popular YouTubers Maja & Diano Jurić have just returned from Maja’s family’s place in Neretva on a mandarin picking expedition.
