Dubrovnik Hills - Did you know ?

Komolac - The source of the river Ombla

Komolac is located 5 km (3 miles) from Dubrovnik. Together with Mokosica and several other settlements arrayed in a semicircle on the coast of the fjord like estuary they form an area of what is known as Rijeka dubrovacka. (An english translation would be River of Dubrovnik).

At the end of this fjord like formation, near Komolac, the source of river Ombla is found. Ombla is a spring of River Trebisnjica which goes subterranean 30 km in the hinterland. Ombla is the shortest river in the world with the mere length of only 30 meters in length (90 feet).


Several summer residences of the Dubrovnik noble families of 15th and 16th century are located in the area. The most famous being the Summer residence of the Sorkocevic family which today hosts the offices of the Yacht marina. The Yacht marina has 425 berths and 140 boat places on land. All berths have water and power supply. There are also numerous appended facilities useful for the marina guest.


The notable sightseeing sights in Rijeka dubrovacka include the Franciscan monastery in Rozat from the 14th century, the source of the Ombla river.


As for the other activities walking and bicycling along the estuary, and trekking to the Golubov Kamen hill above the source of Ombla are things to try out.
