The city where West meets East meets North meets South
Mostar is a city of poetry, a city of stone and sleepy, narrow winding streets. Sure to be one of the most unique and intriguing places one will visit in all of Europe.
Located in a beautiful valley between the high mountains of Herzegovina, Mostar is listed on the UNESCO world heritage list. The town is exceptional for its dwellings and monuments assembled harmoniously over the centuries thanks to favourable geographical conditions and a sound economic climate. Mostar's most famous landmark is an Ottoman stone bridge which connects the city in two parts over the Neretva River. The official religion in Bosnia is Islam and there is evidence of this influence throughout Mostar with its Bazaars, Turkish House, tea houses and many old Mosques.
"Just wanted to thank you again for the great weekend we had in Prague!
Your assistance and support was fantastic the whole time, and you can
be sure we will recommend your services to friends in the future.
There is a fresh history from the Yugoslavian wars of the 90's which is evident throughout the city. Mostar was the most heavily bombed city in Bosnia during the wars. The famous stone bridge was destroyed and was just rebuilt in 2004. A museum just off the bridge houses photos which are a chilling reminder of how much the city suffered in recent years. One highlight of any visit is to watch the local men dive off the bridge into the green waters below. Bosnia is a cheap destination and Mostar's streets are lined with bazaars selling inexpensive local souvenirs such as jewelry.
