Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina 2017 - Must see attractions in Mostar
Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina 2017-Must see attractions in Mostar
The town of Mostar is one of Bosnia & Herzegovina’s most popular destinations, thanks to its outstanding natural beauty, architecture, and its famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Old Bridge (Stari Most). With cobblestoned streets, old stone buildings, and its beautiful bridge spanning the picturesque Neretva River, this town looks like it was plucked from the pages of a fairytale. It is also surrounded by stunning landscape waiting to be explored. This small town attracts thousands of visitors per year.
-One of Mostar’s most famous sites is the Old Bridge (Stari Most). Everyone wants to see the famous Old Bridge and courageous guys jumping into the blue river below. It crosses over the beautiful turquoise Neretva river, and is at the heart of Mostar’s historic Old Town. Stari Most is a 16th century, Ottoman-style bridge and Mostar’s most notable architectural landmark. Stretching 28 metres across the Neretva river, it connects the two sides of the city. Stari Most proudly stood there for 427 years, until it was destroyed in 1993 during the Bosnian War. Thanks to post-war restoration efforts, a new bridge was built in 2004. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, having received this status in 2005 soon after it was rebuilt, and it attracts thousands of tourists to Mostar every year.
-The stone streets of the Old Town are almost as charming as the bridge itself. The Old Town is small with just a few cobblestoned lanes on either side of the Neretva River. On these streets are cafes, restaurants and Old Bazar Kujundziluk filled with souvenir shops. These bazaars look like souks from the Middle-Eastern countries. Mostar is really a fun place to do souvenir shopping. You can find carpets, tea-sets, pots, ceramics, scarves, and dozens of other cute stuff from Mostar.
- Koski Mehmed Paša Mosque- This stunning mosque is not only an attraction itself, but is also a spot for some of the best views of the Stari Most. Built in 1618, Koski Mehmed Paša Mosque is a simple but pretty mosque. There is a small entrance fee that includes the climb up the minaret for 360º views of the bridge, and a stroll around the outside courtyard which also offers amazing views. The interior of the mosque is small but features some lovely ornate decorations, although it is certainly worth a visit just for the views. Outside the mosque is a garden area and fountain taps. You can also visit a lovely café, where you can relax with Turkish tea or coffee and watch the sunset.
- Crooked Bridge (Kriva Cuprija) - This stone bridge is a much more peaceful place to sit and enjoy a relaxing lunch at one of the nearby restaurants. Built in 1558, the bridge was a “test” before the construction of Stari Most began. Located a few minutes walk from the Old Bridge, Kriva Cuprija spans a small creek that feeds into the Neretva River.
- Muslibegović House - One of Mostar’s best examples of Ottoman architecture is the protected national monument, Muslibegović House. It was once inhabited by the noble Muslibegović family, and is now both a luxury hotel and museum.
Other interesting sites are the Muslibegović House, The Hamam museum, Karađoz Bey Mosque, Biscevic House…. and more.

David’s Been Here takes you to Bosnia and Herzegovina to discover what to see and do in the beautiful city of Mostar. The city is well known in the Balkans for its impressive Ottoman-era architecture and laid-back atmosphere. When there aren’t tourists, the old part of the city is ideal for strolling, shopping, and sipping coffee at a local kafana (coffee shop).
David and his friend Sasha spend 2 days exploring Mostar. Their first stop is also the most popular attraction in town – the 16th century Stari Most Bridge (means “Old Bridge”). Sasha explains a little bit about Stari Most’s history and how you can watch the world-famous Mostari Dive Club members do the death-defying jump into the freezing Neretva River below.
David and Sasha then make a quick stop at the Crooked Bridge, which was used as a trial run before the Ottomans built Stari Most. Afterwards David is able to capture two different jumps off Stari Most, which is exciting since tourists don’t always scrounge up enough to pay the divers the 25-euro fee to jump for the crowd. It may seem fun and games, but it is actually quite dangerous! Sasha explains that anyone can jump but they must first get training from a member of the dive club.
Then onto the Biscevica House, a beautiful 17th century Turkish home that holds a great deal of folk art and features traditional architecture. It was built in 1637 and has been in the same family for the past 4 generations. The most intriguing architectural feature of the Biscevica House is the sitting room supported by only 2 exterior pillars. Biscevica House is a museum, so anyone can visit. Other beautiful features include the hand-carved wood and copper works.
Onto the next stop, which is the Muslibegovic House, another 17th century Turkish house that currently serves as a museum/ hotel. In 2010, Expedia.com readers voted the Muslibegovic House 8th best hotel in the world.
David then heads to Koski-Mehmed Pasha Mosque to go up to the top of its minaret for bird’s eye views of Mostar and the iconic Stari Most Bridge. Sasha then takes David to another beautiful building in Mostar, the Karadjoz Bey Mosque. It dates back to 1556 and was built by the Ottomans. This is actually one of the largest Mosques in the country.
We hope you enjoyed David’s suggestions for what to see and do in Mostar.

Medjugorje : Holy Mary of Medjugorje.
Production - Harry Winthagen. Music - Medjugorje.
Međugorje or Medjugorje is located in the Herzegovina region of western Bosnia and Herzegovina, around 25 km southwest of Mostar and close to the border of Croatia. Since 1981 it has become a popular site of religious pilgrimage due of apparitions of the Virgin Mary to six local children. The name Međugorje literally means between mountains. At an altitude of 200 m above sea level it has a mild Mediterranean climate. The town consists of an ethnically homogeneous Croat population of over 4,000. The Roman Catholic parish consists of five neighbouring villages: Medjugorje, Bijakovići, Vionica, Miletina and Šurmanci. Our Lady of Medjugorje and Our Lady Queen of Peace are the titles given to the Blessed Virgin Mary by those who believe that she has been appearing since 24 June 1981. The visionary Mirjana Soldo Dragičević reports receiving messages on the second of the month. The messages attributed to Our Lady of Medjugorje have a strong following among Catholics worldwide. It has become one of the most popular pilgrimage sites for Catholics in the world and has turned into Europe's third most important apparition site, where each year more than 1 million people visit. Many have reported visual phenomena including the sun spinning in the sky or changing colour and figures such as hearts and crosses around the sun. The phenomenon is not officially approved by the Catholic Church. In March 2010 the Holy See announced that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith was forming an investigative commission, composed of bishops, theologians, and other experts, under the leadership of Cardinal Camillo Ruini. The commission is expected to report any findings to the Congregation, which has responsibility for any possible judgment on the case. In October 1981, Father Jozo Zovko, then the parish priest of the town, was sentenced to three and a half years imprisonment with forced labor for allegedly participating in a nationalistic plot. After Amnesty International, among others, appealed for his release and a judicial appeal was made, the sentence was reduced in the Yugoslav Federal Court in Belgrade to one and a half years, and the priest was released from prison in 1983. In the last years before the breakup of Yugoslavia, travel of pilgrims was no longer hindered by the state. After the ending of the Bosnian War, peace came to the area: UN peace troops were stationed in western Herzegovina. Efforts by the politician Ante Jelavić to create a Croatian entity were unsuccessful, and Medjugorje remained part of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The town and its environs boomed economically after the war. Over a thousand hotel and hostel beds are available for pilgrims to the town. With approximately one million visitors annually, the municipality of Medjugorje has the most overnight stays in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

MADONNA DI MEDJUGORJE
Međugorje, scritto anche Medjugorje, è una piccola località del comune di Čitluk, oggi parte del cantone dell'Erzegovina-Narenta, della Federazione di Bosnia ed Erzegovina, in Bosnia ed Erzegovina.
Il paese si trova ad un'altitudine di circa 200 metri sopra il livello del mare ed è situato alla base di due colline, il Križevac ed il Podbrdo (il nome Međugorje significa proprio fra i monti). Il clima è tipicamente mediterraneo.
I suoi cittadini sono prevalentemente di etnia croata e la religione professata dagli abitanti è quella cattolica. La parrocchia di Medjugorie ha competenza anche per i villaggi di Bijakovići, Vionica, Miletina e Šurmanci. Il suo patrono è san Giacomo.
Questa località è diventata celebre nel mondo perché, il 24 giugno del 1981, Vicka Ivanković, Mirijana Dragičević, Marija Pavlović, Ivan Dragičević, Ivanka Ivanković e Jakov Čolo (che allora avevano tra 10 e 16 anni, oggi sono tutti adulti, padri e madri di famiglia) affermano di ricevere apparizioni della Vergine Maria, che si presenterebbe con il titolo di Regina della Pace (Kraljica Mira). Per questo motivo Međugorje è divenuta oggi una famosa meta di numerosi pellegrinaggi.
ra gli elementi naturalistici più affascinanti della regione, spiccano le spumeggianti cascate di Kravice, a circa 40 km da Mostar. Le acque del fiume Trebižat si ramificano, cadendo da pareti di tufo ad un'altezza di 30 metri, e formano un anfiteatro naturale largo 150 metri, allestendo uno spettacolo che ricorda, seppure in dimensioni ridotte, quello delle imponenti cascate del Niagara.
Frequentato nella stagione estiva soprattutto da appassionati di rafting e dagli abitanti locali, è il luogo ideale per tutti coloro che cercano relax e divertimento stando immersi in un ambiente incontaminato, accompagnati dal suono costante delle cascate in sottofondo. Nei pressi delle cascate si trovano anche una piccola grotta, in cui si possono ammirare stalattiti formate da carbonato di calcio, un antico mulino e un vascello.
Il fiume Trebižat consente, inoltre, piacevoli gite in canoa, organizzate da esperti operatori locali, con percorsi fluviali di 10 km. Un'esperienza davvero imperdibile, in cui i ritmi frenetici della vita quotidiana sembrano solo un ricordo lontano.
Međugorje or Medjugorje (Croatian pronunciation: [medʑuɡoːrje]) is a town located in western Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the Herzegovina region around 25 km (16 mi) southwest of Mostar and close to the border of Croatia. The town is part of the municipality of Čitluk. Since 1981, it has become a popular site of religious pilgrimage due to reports of apparitions of the Virgin Mary to six local Catholics.
The name Međugorje literally means an area between mountains. At an altitude of 200 m (660 ft) above sea level it has a mild Mediterranean climate. The town consists of an ethnically-homogeneous Croat population of over 4,000. The Roman Catholic parish (local administrative and religious area) consists of five neighbouring villages, Međugorje, Bijakovići, Vionica, Miletina and Šurmanci.
Following reports of apparitions, successive bishops of Mostar ruled the claims groundless. In March 2010, in view of continued public interest, the Holy See announced that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith was forming an investigative commission, composed of bishops, theologians, and other experts, under the leadership of Cardinal Camillo Ruini, the Pope's former Vicar General for the Diocese of Rome.
Kravice is a waterfall on the Trebižat River in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is ten kilometers south of Ljubuški and forty kilometers south of Mostar. Its height is between 25 meters and the radius of the lake in the base of the waterfall is 120 meters. Kravice is a popular swimming and picnic area and, during the summer, it is frequently visited by tourists from Mostar, Medjugorje and Dubrovnik.
The Kravice Falls area also has a little cafe, a rope swing, a picnic area, and a place to camp. The best time of year for visiting is during the springtime when the fall is at its fullest and the arid landscape turns a bright green. During the high season, various restaurants in the vicinity of the waterfalls mostly offer grilled dishes and fish specialties. Near the Kravice Falls is also a small grotto with stalactites made of calcium carbonate, an old mill and a sailing ship.
5 places to discover in Bosnia and Herzegovina
The picturesque land of Bosnia and Herzegovina is located in the heart of Southeastern Europe and this is an excellent starting point for exploration of the whole region.
Filled with green landscapes, high mountains and historical sites, these are just some of the things which this country has to offer.
Tour Guide Mostar counts down five places you must discover in Bosnia and Herzegovina…
Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, is a compact city on the Miljacka River, surrounded by the Dinaric Alps. Its center has museums commemorating local history, including Sarajevo 1878–1918, which covers the 1914 assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, an event that sparked World War I. Landmarks of the old quarter, Baščaršija, include the Ottoman-era Gazi Husrev-bey Mosque.
Mostar is a city in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina, straddling the Neretva River. It’s known for the iconic Stari Most (Old Bridge), a reconstructed medieval arched bridge. The nearby alleys are full of shops and market stalls, and the Old Bridge Museum explores the bridge’s long history. A narrow staircase leads up to the Koski Mehmed-Pasha Mosque’s minaret for panoramic city views.
One of the magical places that take us back to the past is Blagaj, situated only 12 km away from Mostar.
The small and magical village of Blagaj is located on the river Buna. The Buna spring is one of the largest and most beautiful springs in Europe and probably the best example of underground karst river.
The beautiful scenery and rich history had been home of dervish house which is one of the most important monuments from the period of early Ottoman culture in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Dervishes are known for their special rituals performed and are still performed – zikir (praise to God). The Turkish sultan was delighted with Buna and so he ordered to build Tekke, the monastery of dervishes.
The historic town of Počitelj which is located on the left bank of the river Neretva, on the main Mostar to Metković road, to the south of Mostar, in the territory of Čapljina Municipality.
Back in the the middle ages, Počitelj was centre of governance and its westernmost point, which gave it major strategic importance. It is supposed that the fortified town and its attendant settlements were built by Bosnia’s King Stjepan Tvrtko I in 1383.
The walled town of Počitelj evolved over the period from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries. Architecturally, the surviving stone-built parts of the town are a fortified complex, in which two stages of evolution may be observed: mediaeval, and Ottoman.
Međugorje is a town located in the Herzegovina region of Bosnia and Herzegovina, around 25 km (16 mi) southwest of Mostar and close to the border of Croatia. The town is part of the municipality of Čitluk. Since 1981, it has become a popular site of Catholic pilgrimage due to reports of alleged apparitions of the Virgin Mary to six local children.
