I VISITED MOSTAR AT LAST:)

Mostar was a dream to me and in April 2008, the dream has turned into real. This beautiful Ottoman Bridge looks fascinating over Neretva River. Old part of Mostar is a calm place to have some peace. Old houses, Ottoman mosques, tiny shops and cobbled streets look great together. I really liked every minute of Mostar.

VIEW FROM MINARET OF KOSKI MEHMED MOSQUE

When you have a look at Mostar's panorama, you see the minarets of mosques. also when you start to explore Mostar's heritage, fistly you visit the KOSKI MEHMED PASHA MOSQUE. This mosque built in 1617, by Ottomans. This well-decorated and well-preserved mosque heavily damaged during the war. In the garden of mosque, there are a ottoman graveyard, fountain and a madrasah(theological school of Ottomans).Now you can see gift shops in the garden and and enjoy this view.

GIFT SHOPS

On the way to Mostar Bridge, you can see typical Ottoman houses, turned into gift shops and small cafes.

Pros and Cons

    Interesting Mostar travel pages! Turkish House and Koski Mehmed Pasha Mosque certainly sound wonderful to visit and explore! River Neretva and Mostar Bridge certainly look fascinating! ~ho & pang

    Still so much Ottoman influence in Mostar after all this time! I went to Mostar once, in 1969, and found it fascinating especially since my Czech uncle was stationed there as a k.u.k. soldier in 1909 until he caught malaria and got sent home.

    Interesting city, and I see why you wanted to visit it for so long. Is this the famous bridge that was destroyed during the war and later rebuilt?

    Stunning photos of the River and the Bridge! Interesting about the slippers, to me, they don't look comfortable, but I take your word that they are!
