On our way across Bosnia and Herzegovina we saw many such tombstones (stećak), but this one in Radimlja has the most preserved tombstones in the entire country. It is located near the road Trebinje – Mostar and has a large parking. The fee (4 KM) is quite low for such an important museum.

The remains of the Palace are part of the living heart of the city that features labyrinthine streets packed with locals and tourists alike, bars and restaurants.
