This is the highest clock tower in the area. It was built on the sight of the old clock tower and the church of St. Peter and St. Paul from 1866 which was burned down in 1992. An elevator takes you more than halfway up to the 75m-high viewing area, saving 222 of the 370 steps. The massive yet still unfinished Franciscan church below is a replacement for an 1866 basilica that was badly damaged during the war.

We originally thought the clock tower close to the Partisan cemetery was the peace tower, but when we got to the top of the actual Peace Tower we saw how wrong we were. The Peace Tower towered above the other clock tower.

Be careful when climbing this structure. There are multiple bells inside and they ring every 15 minutes. This is extremely loud when you are inside. As you walk up, it's like going through a museum as there are several information signs about the city and its history.

This tower is the enormous bell tower of the adjacent Francisian Church. The design is modernist, 105 metre high square tubular form, topped with a pyramidal roof and surmounted with a cross. The structure seems to have been constructed in conformance with the communist love of concrete and practicality. The height is impressive, but not much love seems to have been put into the aesthetics.

A new belfry, built in 2000. Very tall, the total height is 107m. The observation platform, however, is only 75m high. You can take the elevator a little more than half the way to the observation platform. The rest you have to climb the stairs.. The observation platform is closed with windows. The view from above is OK, but Mostar is not a very spectacular city. Access is paid, it is 3 euros.

Beautiful monument, didn't manage to visit inside or up the tower as we didn't have time, but from the outside, it's well kept and clean.

Standing 107 meters tall, the bell tower is made of reinforced concrete. It was constructed in 2000. This bell tower is visible from anywhere in the city.

The Mostar Peace Bell Tower was built adjacent to the Franciscan monastery as a symbol of peace. The tower of the Franciscan church in Mostar welcomes citizens of Mostar and their guests and travelers to climb to the lookout point at a height of 75 meters, with a beautiful view of the city at the foot of Velez.

The initiator of this idea is Fr. Iko Skoko, guardian of the monastery of St. Petar and Pavao in Mostar. Fr. Skoko also planned a soup kitchen, dormitories and school to help those in need in Mostar.

This tower was built beside the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, which literally sat at on the front line separating the Muslims and Christians during the 1990s War. Wonderful education of the war, along with the best views of the Mostar. Enter at the bottom and take the elevator to the tower bells (3 Euros) and then walk the 150 or so steps to the top for the best view in the entire city.

For visitors to Mostar, you will not miss this place as the tower is located almost next to the coach parking area where all the tourists will alight and board their coaches before going (and after returning) to the old town.

This is a nice and tallest building structure around the area with a unique but lovely architectural design. You can take the elevator up to the top that offers you a bird eye's view of the surrounding area (of course you can walk up/down too) with an admission charge.

Next to the elevator, there's a small souvenir/gift booth, selling items related to the bell tower and Mostar. And although it's very sunny and warm outside, inside the bell tower, it's very cooling (without airconditioning or fan).

It's a good place to drop by for a visit!

Located next to the Monastery of St Peter and Paul, it is near the entrance/exit of the historic center. Parking lot for buses of group tours is near by so buses and buses of tourists are getting off here.

Entrance fee to this attraction is 3 Euros. There is an elevator inside so no worry about climbing up the steps. Excellent place to take photos of the city of Mostar. Highly recommended to visit!
