Kravice is a waterfall on the Trebižat River in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is ten km south of Ljubuški and forty kilometers south of Mostar.[1] Its height is between 25 metres and the radius of the lake in the base of the waterfall is 120 metres.[2] Kravice is a popular swimming and picnic area and, during the summer, it is frequently visited by tourists from Mostar, Medjugorje and Dubrovnik.

The Kravice Falls area also has a little cafe, a rope swing, a picnic area, and a place to camp.[3] The best time of year for visiting is during the springtime when the fall is at its fullest and the arid landscape turns a bright green.[4] During the high season, various restaurants in the vicinity of the waterfalls mostly offer grilled dishes and fish specialties.[5] Near the Kravice Falls is also a small grotto with stalactites made of calcium carbonate, an old mill and a sailing ship.[6]
