SADRŽAJ
Stecci – medieval tombstones, in all aspects of their appearance, represent a specific segment of the cultural and historical heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the western parts of Serbia and Montenegro and the central or southern parts of Croatia. The paper analyzes the present state of the necropolises of tombstones in the area of western Herzegovina in order to point out the insufficient valorization in the tourist offer, despite the fact that this cultural heritage is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The current situation of their preservation leads to the conclusion that cultural and historical heritage is not particularly appreciated in the regional or wider context. Due to the insufficient knowledge on the same matter, collective awareness of the need for protection of this cultural and historical heritage is at a low level. Medieval Tombstones „disappear“ every day because of the inadequate legal protection, climate change and atmospheric action. This research was conducted with the local population, which is considered a key factor for a higher degree of valorization in the analyzed area. The main goal was to educate and get acquainted the population about the importance of the medieval tombstones which left a significant trace in the culture and tradition of modern times. Keywords: Medieval tombstones, Culture, Herzegovina, tourism.
