Town Komin reflection in Neretva river south of Ploce Dalmatia Croatia
Komin is a small, picturesque town in southern Dalmatia on the right bank of the Neretva river. The old Croatian village is two kilometers long, with its houses and narrow streets preserved in a state like they were hundred years ago.
The church of St. Anthony Padovanski was built in 1925. Every year on June 13th, a celebration is held in honor of the church's patron, St. Anthony Padovanski. In addition, the place's patron saint is Saint Barbara (December 4th), who answered the prayers of the people of Komin for mercy from the plague.
The inhabitants of Komin have been engaged exclusively in agriculture and fishing for centuries. However, numerous problems that have accompanied agricultural production for a long time, and the devastation of fish stocks in the Neretva Valley, have led people to start new activities, and one of them is tourism. Therefore, Komin is an ideal location as a starting point for touring Mostar or Medjugorje sanctuary.
