Sad sight

Definitely worth a walk to see this once grand building, now standing in ruins. You can get up close for some great pictures

A terrible reminder of the tragedies of war that have befallen Bosnia in the nineties. Let's not do this again people.

Once an opulent 19th century hotel, the shelling during the Bosnian war took its toll on this building (and many more). All that is left is a shell of its former self. It is a sad and sobering sight but important reminder of the wages of war.

Built during the Austro Hungarian period, The splendid 1892 Neretva Hotel was the symbol of Yogouslavia with its layered yellow/red stonework and neo-Moorish design. In the nineties conflict and since then, more has collapsed, leaving only ruines fragments of the wall and bare windows.

You can't go inside to explore, but you can get good views from the bridge. If you wan't to explore some of the war damaged parts of the city you should take... More

There is not a lot to see here unless you have some background knowledge to Bosnia and the war which was fought here in the 90's. The hotel on the river is a ruin...there are no rooms, no service and no life. There is a new building next to it to highlight the stark difference between where Mostar is now... More

Not much to see at this point. If it is rebuilt, let's hope they leave part of it as it is now, a sad reminder of pointless aggression.
