Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

After our hour long stop at Kravice Waterfalls, we continued onto Mostar for the remainder of the day. We wandered around the old part of Mostar, which was very cute. It did seem like a major tourist trap as everywhere we walked, there were shop owners solely selling souvenirs. As the day went on, we witnessed more and more buses dropping people off to tour the city as it’s a popular day trip from Dubrovnik.

As we approached the town, we got a glimpse of the crooked bridge shown below.

I appreciated that the bridge was away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city and offered a nice way to cross the river.

Look how cute the buildings surrounding the river are!

We made our way to the Old Bridge, which was destroyed in the 1990’s and eventually rebuilt. From the bridge, we had some great views of the rest of the town.

We wandered into more of the modern shop area and saw a few monuments and buildings we thought were neat.

Our tour spent about 3 hours in Mostar, which I think was a bit too long unless you’re planning to sit and have a long lunch. In talking with other people we met, some had gone on different day trips from Dubrovnik that included a stop in Bosnia and Herzegovina after Mostar. I really wish we had done one of those trips instead. However, you live and learn!

Have you been to Mostar? What was your favorite part?

Love Croatia and waterfalls? Don’t miss out on Plitvice Lakes National Park!

  1. I think I did the same trip as you. I didn’t realise Mostar was so much bigger than what we were able to see and in hindsight I wish I had more time there.
    Interesting to see someone else’s perspective of the excursion.

  2. Interesting to hear your thoughts, it’s somewhere that has been on my list for a while and I was quite keen on visiting. Maybe I’ll rethink staying there though and just stick to a daytrip if there’s not much to do.
