I'm wary to call it a hidden gem, but it it a super neat modernist memorial to the second world war. You'll have to google the history of it yourself because there's no interpretation on site, but it's got a fascinating history having been a very popular monument throughout all the Yugoslav years. It would have been amazing to see it in its glory days with the functional water features.

Unfortunately it was left to decay before, during and after the war. The site was also recently vandalized un June 2022 where most of the remaining memorial stones were smashed. Fingers crossed this site can be rehabilitated in the future.

Ok, giving this monument a 5 is perhaps an exaggeration, but: please visit this monument to commemorate antifascism. The complex is today severely damaged (as well known, history changes every second quarter in Balkan) and hasn't been maintained.

That being said: if you try to imagine the complexity of this monument being there, your mind will be completely blown away. Mostar is far more than an old (but very beautiful) bridge. If you want to get away from the touristic places and see something very unique, this is the place to go.

As said: it's not maintained, no entrance fee and you need either a city guide or a good vivid imagination to understand how interesting this actually is. Hopefully can more visitors also send a message that this place should be better maintained.

Monuments like these should not be forgotten.

We visited the Partisan Cemetery as part of our 'Death of Yugoslavia' tour with iHouse travel - which I would highly recommend! I think alot of the less positive comments about this attraction are from those travellers who visited the cemetery alone, and without someone to inform them of its amazing history, and really explain how this place would have once looked...Our guide Miran did a wonderful job of guiding us around the monument as we learnt about its history and creator!

Yes there are locals who also visit the monument, but I would hardly call them 'unsavoury' - they're merely locals probably reminiscing about a place that once was one of the greatest attractions in Mostar...And yes it isn't maintained for political reasons, but its shear size and unique design should be more than enough to impress most travellers...

So if you want to visit the cemetery, I highly suggest you book a tour with iHouse travel and have a well rounded experience, rather than walking yourself around an abandoned cemetery and probably not understanding its greatness!

I was in Mostar and a guy in the tourist information office suggested us that we go and see it since it gives a chance to go through the residential and "modern" areas of Mostar. The journey did go through those areas and it was different from the old "touristy" city, but the cemetery itself is an absolute crap hole. First up, people don't know where it is and even after we found it after much disdain and effort we found that the place is converted into an absolute pile of rubbish. The place is superbly dirty with splinters of beer bottles all over the place and a constant stink in the air. The cemetery, which is at the very top of the memorial structure is in a sorry state with many of the stones mixed up and fallen apart and a disgrace to once fallen heroes. You have to go out of your way to reach there and once you are there you feel sorry for the memorial and the fact that you wasted so much time finding it. I suggest you never go there unless someone takes cognizance of the structure and does some upkeep. I would give zero stars if that was an option.

It was an attraction maybe 30-40 years ago but now it's just a place where junkies gather.. Very dirty place full of bottles and broken glass. Beware of the used needles on ground!

During the WWII Mostar's youth joined to Tito's army of partisans fighting nacist and fascist and gave their life for the freedom of people of Yugoslavia. To salute them people build the cemetery. There are many others monuments in Mostar - see my photos - but this one is must see.

This is a literally awe inspiring place to visit. No one else was there at all, and it looked as if no-one had been there for some time. It is a unique piece of architecture, and a very moving secular tribute to the partisans who lost their lives during WW2. The plaques are identical, and form a sobering tribute. A bonus is that the view over Mostar is impressive. Seek it out.

If one is only willing to see beyond the weeds, and general neglect they will be able to sense the heart that was put into this monument. Constructed during the 60's as a memorial of the hundreds of partizans that were killed during the World War II, it is neither religious nor communist, not even an antifascist place - which makes it unique. It was made to be a city for the dead young people that mimicked Mostar itself. It has been reconstructed after being damaged during the war but is in general state of neglect. It was a bit hard to find and I do not recommend visiting alone. Hope the city of Mostar, once named "The red city" takes better care of this gem that is only a matter of time to gain popularity once again!

I would definitely recommend checking it out - the architecture is interesting, the view over the city is great and the blend of nature, history and architecture is one I really enjoy. However, it is covered in graffiti and there is a lot of broken glass on the floor as people use the place for partying. Unfortunately, I've heard there are no plans to fix it (also because of the complex history and opinions about it),but I guess there still is hope it could become a destination. After all, history is what it is and people can always learn from it.

I am not going to repeat the state that this site is abandoned to. It's a shame and a disgrace for those fallen for the liberation of this land. I wonder if this is done on purpose so everything related to the old communist regime is deliberately demoted and left to be forgotten. I give 4 stars to honour the memories of the fallen but the site is not worth anything. Shame to the Mostar authorities for letting this happen.
