Blagaj is a kasaba (village-town) some 12 km southeast of Mostar, Herzegovina-Neretva Canton, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Blagaj is situated at the famous source of the Buna river and a historical tekke (tekija or Dervish monastery) which is a part of the "Townscape ensemble of the town of Blagaj - Historical and Natural Heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina". The Blagaj Tekija was built around 1520, with the elements of Ottoman architecture and Mediterranean style[1][2] is currently a national monument which attracts tourists.

The source of the Buna river (Vrelo Bune) is a strong karstic spring. The Buna flows west for approximately 9 kilometres and joins the Neretva near the village Buna.

Fortress above Tekke in Blagaj was the seat of Bosnian and Herzegovinian nobleman, Stjepan Vukčić and also the birthplace of Bosnian queen Katarina Kosača-Kotromanić.
