A prominent meeting point of the East and the West, Mostar is scripted for marvelous shots and a scenic stroll near gushing streams.
Home to the most recognized structure in the Balkans, Mostar mesmerizes visitors with its agleam riverside and atmospheric old town. The city seems unfazed from rushing modernity and still carries the spirit of its glorious Ottoman era. In between Stari Most and the cobbled alleys, you will hear the poignant stories of how Mostar was resurrected from its wartime destruction.
Simple yet striking in design, the Old Bridge of Mostar reaches from one cliff to the other. It resembles a stone archway fashioned by nature itself. It came to life in the most magnificent epoch of the Ottoman Empire as a manifestation of power. Collective efforts to restore it after the Croat-Bosniak war paid off, leaving the site as marvelous as it used to be. Today the bridge is a historical centerpiece.
Not many cities still embody Ottoman flair in their bearings, but Mostar is full of that traditional charm. An orchestra of clinging copper pots, morning salutations, and chattering travelers reflect the hospitable spirit of the old town. Help yourself with a delightful cup of Turkish coffee as you watch the shopkeepers and locals. This is how a day goes by in Mostar. Scattered across the town, ornate Turkish baths and mosques are also must-visit attractions. The living culture is as impressive as the stories of war surrounding it, making Mostar the perfect destination for travelers seeking some authenticity.
