Herzegovina is a specific region that has a long tradition in tobacco growing, thanks to it’s geographical position. This tradition started in the time of Austro-Hungarian monarchy and is still nourished.
By occupation of Bosnia and Herzegovina the Austro-Hungarian monarchy started the monopoly law on the growth, production and sales of tobacco, this could only be done by the state and not by the people. People were allowed to grow tobacco for a personal use, but sales was taxed and people didn’t have enough money to cover those expenses so they started to learn a new trade, known as tobacco smuggling.
Adventures of the tobacco smugglers are a part of the legends of the mountains in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This story is a reminder of those people and their uncertainty related to the mountains, with a wish to keep those memories and save them from being lost.
Life was hard in the parts of west Herzegovina. One of the rare agricultural products that found it’s way to success was a tobacco. Tobacco smugglers had to choose the tougher paths through the mountains to be able to avoid police ambushes, and all that was done with a big load on their backs, over the highest peaks and dangerous grounds.
