Mostar 88000, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Thanks to reading recommendations here on Afar.com, I picked up a copy of Sarajevo Marlboro at a bookstore, just as we crossed the famous, historic bridge in Mostar, Bosnia. At the bookstore, a short film played over and over, documenting the...

If you venture to Mostar, and I recommend you do, and you’re up for some no-frills, delicious, Bosnian local specialties, this is the place to visit. It doesn’t look like much, and to be fair, we likely would have passed it by if it wasn’t so...

The seamless restoration on the Mostar Bridge shows love in its workmanship. The colors of the rock match, new stones gathered from the same quarry as the original. Still, at each end one can see original stones, more thoroughly worn. It’s one...

I can’t name all the ways our hostess made us feel at home—but I’ll list a few. When we arrived, road weary, she had muffins ready for us, baked with locally-grown, organic flour—and local fruit brandy. She dug up turtles to amuse our kids—despite...

“Last days of business” said the sign on a street still pockmarked by bullet holes. Necklaces, knives, coffee sets, beads all for sale. After buying a souvenir I asked if I could take his photo. “Why?” he asked. “To remind me of Mostar” I replied....

Onescukova 30, Rade Bitange 9a, Mostar 88000, Bosnia and Herzegovina
There may not be much to do in Mostar, but it sure is lovely! Quiet, peaceful, and breathtakingly beautiful, to be exact. Wander the old stone streets, take in the views of the historic bridges, and relax over an espresso. Could 48 hours possibly...

We booked this pansion/guest house partly because reviews mentioned turtles in the yard. Turns out, Pansion Rose was a gem—in many ways. The proprietress dug up turtles in her garden just for my kids—saying, it’s getting warm out, it’s time for...

Stari most, Mostar 88000, Bosnia and Herzegovina
We spent a day in Bosnia, it's an easy drive from Dubrovnik. The transition was dramatic: from the Latin alphabet to the Cyrillic; from lazy tourists driving Fiats to vigilant UN peacekeepers driving tanks. This bridge was destroyed in 1993 during...

While Mostar itself is a relatively small town it is one of the most visited in the Balkans. Known for its alley of coppersmiths, where the sons and daughters of coppersmiths before them have toiled, the ‘clang clang clang’ nearly drowns out the...

In 1992 the Bosnian town of Mostar, until then a peaceful mix of Muslims, Serbs and Croats, self-imploded; a microcosm of all that went wrong in the former Yugoslavia. Neighbours who had fought a common enemy turned on each other. The...

“Oh my god, he’s going to do it!” screeched the American teenager to my left. Sure enough with a quick wave to the crowd, a furtive glance downwards and a tuck of the pants, over he leapt. One of Mostar’s bridge-jumpers had just taken the plunge...

Seeing your featured video about Mostar prompted me to share this photo I took while touring the area last December. Despite the atrocities of conflict, the bridge has been rebuilt and the tradition of jumping continues. A tribute to the history...

A cafe turned into a bar-cum-cafe. Great place to lounge about and people watch!

While there are an abundance of restaurants along the Neretva river in Mostar, one superb choice is Urban Grill. Here you can try the traditional ćevapi (a dish of minced meat, similar to sausages) in somun (or flatbread), which is considered a...
