The village of Vid sits on a sunny hilltop in the Neretva region. Planted on the remains of the ancient ancient city of Narona it harkens back to the days of the former Greek and Roman colonies there. The scenic landscape around Vid is comprised of the Norin River winding its way through a rich green valley to the Neretva River. A top the hill lies the impressive historical monument to Duke Domagoj's archers, the work of sculptor Stjepan Skoko and equally stunning local church. The view is fantastic, on one side overlooking the untouched wetlands, on another the headwaters of the Norin and on a third side Metkovic and the Neretva valley. The Norin is a tributary to the Neretva which opens out into the Adriatic Sea. Croatian Radio brings you more in this piece prepared by Tomislav Šikić.
