Reminder of war

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.

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.
