Mostarska Bijela is a mountain creek in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Despite its small and short flow, this river takes a significant place in Bosnia and Herzegovina's geology and hydrology.

Rare geology[edit]

The Mostarska Bijela is left tributary of the Neretva river. It flows from the south-western slopes of Prenj mountain toward south and into the Neretva, in the region of Drežnica Donja and Salakovac villages. The Mostarska Bijela river shapes a rare and unique karstic geological feature, which resembles a sinking river with canyon-like semi-underground flow. What is unique here, in case of the Mostarska Bijela, is that cave roof of its underground section is opened to surface in form of very narrow gap in many places, enough only for small amount of light to enter the cavernous river course, which is also traversable, and thus attractive for tourists, mountaineers, canyoning, as well as for speleologist.
