Medjugorje - Mostar
Medjugorje


As we didn't find rooms in Mostar, we had to stay in Medjugorje for some meeting in Mostar. But it was OK because it is not too far from Mostar. Just 30 km. And it was the great experience for me to see the place where the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared in 1981, even if my religion doesn't recognize it. Millions of people, from all over the world, have visited Medjugorje and have left spiritually strengthened and renewed.

Koskin-Mehmed Pasha's Mosque Koski Mehmed Pasha Mosque Review


On the Neretva's left river bank, 50 meters northerly of Kujundziluk, Koski-Mehmed Pasha built a mosque in 1617. Koskin-Mehmed Pasha's mosque has nice doom and it's the single one mosque in Mostar with preserved original wall paint and decorations. In spite of protection under UNESCO, in 1993 its minaret is demolished while court-yard and doom are partly damaged. Today, it s almost all repaired. Entrance is free.

Monastery of Saint Peter and Paul


Catholics Monastery of Saint Peter and Paul is located in south part of the west Mostar. The bell tower is dominated building in Mostar. Almost from every part of the city, including the east side, you can see the bell tower. I don't from which time is dated, but it looks brand new. Maybe it is new or it's renovated.

Prva Gimnazija (The First Gymnasium)


Buildings from Austro-Hungarian period give special charm to architectonic wealth of Mostar. In 1878 Bosnia and Herzegovina was annexed to Austro-Hungarian empire. There is a whole range of interesting buildings from that time.
One of them is the Old Gymnasium situated on Spanish Square, just by separation line from the last war. It was built in 1898 according to outline scheme of architect Blazek, with facade rich in Moresque elements. The Gymnasium was destroyed in last war but is still looks nice.

Address: Spanish Square, west Mostar
