OVERHEATED MELTING POT: The Balkans have been a crossroad of conflict for centuries with migrations and invasions. In Pocitlj, one of the most beautiful Turkish towns in Bosnia, the Serbian castle on the hill and the tower of the Catholic church remain standing but the mosque was destroyed during the war. The village overlooks the Neretva River, which is sometimes used as a dividing line between ethnic groups.
