How to Spend a Day in Mostar

Friday, July 6, 2018

I stand behind that a single day in Mostar is not enough, but I am might baist so don't listen to me. As you know five of us went to Bosnia this year, and Mostar was one of our stops.
The history, architecture and natural wildlife of Mostar are vast and breathtaking. Mostar has a Mediterranean climate with summer days filled with heat and refreshing mountain air. There is ton of things to see and do, restaurants and coffee shops everywhere so how do you make most and spend a day in Mostar?

Start with breakfast at village of Blagaj which is located on the spring of the river Buna. There you will see the beautiful historical Tekka, surrounded with wonderful river front restaurants.

Make you way to old part of Mostar with cobblestone streets, medieval structures and traditional Ottoman style buildings. The river Neretva divides the town of Mostar and provides a fascinating view of the architectural and cultural view of the town. The two sides of the city of Mostar, the west and the east coast of the river, are joined by the famous Old Bridge of Mostar. The Old Bridge was completely destroyed during the war, but it was rebuilt and returned to its former glory and it has since become a symbol of unity of the both sides of the river. The Old Bridge is considered as the heart of the city of Mostar. You can take a leisurely stroll along the bridge and old town, grab a drink, shop and watch locals jump of the bridge into the river below.

Make your way to the medieval town of Počitelj. This is the oldest town of Herzegovina, built within a hill and old cobblestone walls. Počitelj is a UNESCO World Heritage site because it has maintained the original form and architecture.  Check out Počitelj’s oldest monument, the Sahat Kula, and fascinating architecture.
Finish your day with a drive to Kravice waterfall, the pearl of Herzegovina. During the summer days, stunning waterfall of Trebižat river, offers you to cool yourself down and take a swim. You can grab a drink and lunch or late dinner at one of the restaurants.
