Not really a tourist attraction per se as it just stands there and you can not really visit, but nevertheless a good reminder of Mostar (and the Balkans) troubled past. Its weird to think that it was just 20 years ago (-ish) that war tormented this beautiful country.

While not really a tourist attraction in the classic sense of the word, it has come to be a draw for those visiting Mostar. While there are many sites that remind you that the town is not that far removed from a war, this is one of the most jarring. If your interested in the recent history of the region... More

A very sad rememberance of the toll war can take. As someone born in Northern Ireland I had seen the damage WW2 had done to Belfast and later some of the the damage done by the IRA insurgency and teh destruction caused by "both sides" then. Living amonst such ruins that you see every day is very difficult and it... More

This buliding sits very close to the city center, we saw it while simply wandering around. It's a sad reminder of the past, it's contrasts with nearby 5 star hotel.

If you are looking for place which will leave strong mark on your mind this could be a good choice. Rest of war. Once beautiful hotel, but now ruin. Sad but true.

This hotel use to be very popular place between locals. Unfortunately it has been destroyed in war and since then still as ruins. It's a shame that is not renovated yet.

A sad reminder of the faded glories that was once Yugoslavia. The broken shell of the once stylish Hotel stands as a warning to the cost of when a nation turns on itself, not just on human life but on its shared history and identity. Visit only to be reminded of what has been lost!

Similar to Tito's place but not as interesting. There are lots of buildings like this in Mostar. Should they keep them is a matter of opinion.

Mostar is poignant. Here, there are still evidences of how catastrophic the Balkan conflict was to the old Yugoslav nation and its people. The Neretva hotel is a shell of a building. I actually drove past, thinking it was a building destined for demolition, and then my history bits kicked in and I did a double take. It tugs at... More

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