Mostar was not only part of our tour with Amico Tours but also our final destination of our Kravice Falls/Mostar Tour. We booked a lodging less than 5mins walk from the Mostar train station.
Mostar is the fifth largest city in Bosnia and Hercegovina. Its historic yet was developed in the 15th and 16th centuries as an Ottoman frontier town.
How to get there: Trains running between Sarajevo and Mostar (*frequency dependent on the season) and Buses. Note: When booking pick-ups or drops-offs, check name of bus station. There are two bus stations in Mostar – Autobusna stanica Mostar (across river from the train station) and Mostar Bus station (within the same building as Mostar Train station.
Stari Most is one of Mostar’s famous landmarks and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Stari Most is a rebuilt of the 16th century Ottoman bridge which stood for 427 years until it was destroyed in November 1993. The bridge that now stands was reconstructed after the Croat-Bosniak War and re-opened in July 2004.
The Old Town of Mostar is popular tourist spot in Mostar. The Old Town is on both sides of the Neretva.
The Old Town is paved with cobblerstones which tends to be slippery during wet season or if your shoes do not have the correct grip. Suggestion: Have good pair of walking shoes with good grips.
It is quite a challenge to not shopping when navigating the streets of Mostar Old Town. I was in Mostar in March and noticed that not every shop was open and there are lesser tourists.
Shopping in the Old Town: There can be limited space to move in the shops. Suggest using a daypack for shopping. Washrooms: Use of Public Washrooms are chargeable unless you eat at cafes and use their facilities while patronizing.
