What to Expect
Visit the city where East and West combine at the beautiful turquoise-colored river Neretva. Experience the unique atmosphere of this multicultural city, which brings together Oriental architecture, Mediterranean air and Balkan beauty.
On the way to Mostar, enjoy beautiful views of the Elaphite Islands and the Pelješac peninsula. Later, catch a glimpse of Bosnia-Herzegovina and take in views of the Neretva Delta.
Before reaching Mostar, make a quick pitstop at Počitelj, a picturesque and interesting little town. In the 15th century, the Croatians began construction on the resort; however, this wasn't completed until approximately 100 years later under Ottoman rule.
Spend approximately four hours in Mostar, discovering the Old Town and learning more about the city, with a one-hour-long tour from a local tour guide.
The Old Bridge, Stari Most, is not only the symbol of the city, but it's also known around the world as the bridge that connects both banks of the river Neretva. When the bridge was destroyed during a bomb attack in 1993, it had a deep impact on Mostar's inhabitants. Find out more about Stari Most, as well as the city's other historical sights, such as the Old Bazaar, the Turkish House, and one of the many magical mosques.
