Mostar Attractions

The historic town of Mostar, spanning a deep valley of the Neretva River, developed in the 15th and 16th century as an Ottoman frontier town and during the Austro-Hungarian period in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Mostar has long been known for its old Turkish houses and Old Bridge, Stari Most, after which it is named. In the 1990 conflict, however, most of the historic town and the Old Bridge, designed by the renowned architect, Sinan, were destroyed.

The Old Bridge was recently rebuilt and many of the edifices in the Old Town have been restored or rebuilt with the contribution of an international scientific committee established by UNESCO.

The Old Bridge area, with its pre-Ottoman, eastern Ottoman, Mediterranean and western European architectural features is an outstanding example of a multicultural urban settlement.

The reconstructed Old Bridge and Old City of Mostar is a symbol of reconciliation, international cooperation and of the coexistence of diverse cultural, ethnic and religious communities. 

Mostar most famous cultural events are the Bridge Jumper Festival and the Summer Festival with traditional dances, music etc.

The quaint oriental-style town, Pocitelj is located about half an hour's drive from Mostar, less than 30km south on the M-17 road towards the Adriatic. The Hadzi-Alija Mosque has been reconstructed as well as the Sisman-Ibrahimpasina medresa and the Gavran Kapetanovic house, all of which are open to visitors.

Neretva is a river and a picturesque river canyon located primarily in Bosnia and Herzegovina originating deep in the Dinaric Alps. The total length of the river is 225 km, of which 203 km are in Herzegovina, and the final 22 km-long part, where the Neretva forms a delta, belongs to Croatia.
