Welcome to City of Mostar


In the Herzegovina Region of Bosnia and Herzegovina, there is only one city with a population of over 100,000. Mostar serves as the unofficial capital for this region, and the city offers a wealth of history and culture. Settled on the banks of the Neretva River, Mostar is the fifth-largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mostar contains quite a few pieces of evidence that the city was in existence during medieval times, and visitors can see these buildings and monuments throughout the city. There are also several pieces of architecture from the Ottoman era, as well as buildings that represent other eras throughout history.

Sightseeing Of Mostar


Many of the historic structures in the city are religious buildings, including the Cejvan Cehaj Mosque from 1552 and the Koski Mehmed Pasa Mosque from 1617. The most notable architectural sight in the city is probably the Old Bridge, which was originally built in 1558. The original structure was destroyed in 1993, but it has been lovingly restored and is an exact replica of the sixteenth century design. The Turkish House is also listed as another must-see, standing between two of the city's most famous mosques. For those seeking culture, there are several choices, including the Museum of Hercegovina, the Culture Center of Mostar, the Music Center Pavarotti-Mostar, the National Theater, the Herzegovina Archive, the Aluminij Art Gallery, and the Aleksa Santic House.

The Mostar International Airport welcomes flights daily from hundreds of different cities, so travel to the area is quite easy. There is a sophisticated bus system that transports passengers from the airport to the city, and the public transportation system makes getting around town quite easy. There are several sights within walking distance from the hotels in Mostar, but taxi services are also available for longer trips. Many tourists also appreciate seeing the city by bicycle.
