    Beautiful picturesque bridge with a market area. This has been rebuilt, so it's not very old, but it is very pretty. Be extremely careful walking across the bridge, it's slippery and if you're not very steady on your feet it can be treacherous. The young men on the bridge climbing up to jump are expecting you to pay for the privilege of watching them do it. Beware also that it's very crowded in the market area and watch for pickpockets (we didn't have any problems, but it looks like a good area to watch for them).

    The market appears to be mostly full of stuff made in China or Turkey. I did find some hand-crocheted baby booties for my niece though.

    Being in Mostar to visit the Old Bridge, it was a nice surprise to find how beautiful the river under the bridge is. Počitelj is another good place to see Neretva River and guess there are many others.

    This is one of the best museum's to visit while being in Mostar and overall while in BiH. It shows the cruelty of the 1992-1995 war and all the horrible and painful aspects of it. It also depicts the beauty of Bosnian people, their society and culture. Their fight and perseverance against the enemy is displayed in a very raw but touching way.
    Would highly recommend this museum! 10/10!

    the entrance fee is pretty pricey, 7 euros or 14 BAM (May 2022). however, the minaret is the gem here as it provides you a birds eye view of Stari Most.

    be prepared to climb 89 steps of spiral stairs to the top. best down first thing in the morning when the crowd of visitors is still thin

    An Ottoman market that has kept its original charm.
    Narrow streets with cobblestones and lots of artisan shops that sell a wide range of souvenirs like chandeliers, porcelain pots, copper objects,...
    You also find books, photographs, helmets, portraits, bullet casings (and other stuff of the recent war).

    Saturday 11th June and this was the final place we were taken to on our Guided Walk of the Old Town of Mostar.

    The old Ottoman house is hidden behind tall walls, we entered into the outer courtyard of the house though the wooden doors in the wall.

    Here we learnt that the house had been been been built by a wealthy family back in the Ottoman times. The owner was the tax collector on behalf of the Empire.

    From there we went through another set of doors which let us to the inner cobbled courtyard of the house. Where the kitchen, toilet and fountain are located.

    There were a number of signs of opulence, the high walls around the house, the outside toilet and kitchen.
    Although privately owned, this perfectly preserved example of an Ottoman House is now a National monument. There is an entrance fee of 2 KM, less than £1, children were free, this was included in our tour price, this goes to the owners. We were unable to enter the rooms downstairs, the owners used them for storage.

    While we waited to go upstairs, another tour ahead of us, we sat in the covered area in the courtyard and drank some Turkish coffee, definitely an acquired taste.

    Before we climbed the stairs we had to remove our shoes. At the top of the stsirs we found ourselves on a wooden veranda shich led us into a large sitting room where the ladies of the house would sit. There were the most wonderful coloured carpets on the floor.

    On the left hand was the bedroom where the owner would sleep with his wife, it was permitted to have more than one wife.

    At the rear was the best room, where the men would sit. Looking through the windows there were great views of the Neretva River below. Although the room is square a carved wooden circle in the ceiling gives the appearance that the room is circular as in a mosque.

    We were informed that during the war there was do much devastation in the City, miraculously thus old house was virtually unscathed. It only lost a few tiles off the kitchen.

    Moving, powerful and informative. A great way to get a historical and emotional snapshot of the war in Mostar from the perspective of a New Zealand photo-journalist who was living there at the time. Haunting to put the pictures in perspective, as many of the streets and buildings pictured will be familiar to you if you have spent the day wondering in Mostar. Cheap and takes 20-40 mins - leave a donation - they deserve it.

    Not so famous and smaller than the Old Bridge but still nice and it worth a short detour to take a picture.

    Emotionally heavy place. You can feel the heaviness in the air. The inside is covered with broken glass bottles and spray paint graffiti is seen everywhere. Open elevator shafts and gaps in floor so be careful if you dare to trespass and enter. Posted no trespass signs.

    We didn't go in the mosque but did visit the memorial and the adjoining cemetary. It was a sobering reminder of the human toll of the Bosnian War. The cemetary appeared full, and while there were a few old graves, the overwhelming majority of the graves were young men who were all killed over a relatively very short period of time.

    Decent mall, with some nice clothes shops and well equipped supermarket at the bottom. We stayed at the hotel on the top floors, and had some coffee and cake at McDonalds. My girls enjoyed the shops.

    I stopped here briefly to admire the view on a tour of Herzegovina. I am told you can walk up but I wouldn;t know the way - I only know that the view is amazing!

    The house was very different from any home known to us. The concept of a tunnel for food services was certainly novel. The wives’ rooms were also quite fascinating
