The historical city of Konjic welcomes 30 rafting teams on Neretva river. The European Rafting Championships, that take place every two years, are ready to be held in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the Herzegovina-Neretva Canton. The town, born on the shores of the clear blue waters of Neretva, is one of the oldest permanent settlements in Bosnia and Herzegovina, dating back almost 4,000 years.

This morning the 12 countries competing in the Champs paddled the first strokes during the official training, studying the lines and the water level of Neretva, surrounded by the green woods of Konjic.
