Mostar Things to Do: 310 reviews and 748 photos

 
 

This is not so much a thing to do but something to experience. One of the main traffic arteries of Mostar is the aesthetically drab Bulevar. You won't visit here to see beautiful architecture or a continuation of the charm of the Old Turkish Quarter but you will want to visit here to view the former frontline of the recent coflict. Many people presume the frontline between east (Bosniak) and west (Bosnian Croat) Mostar was marked by the Neretva River, but this is not strictly true. It is the area around Bulevar which marked the frontline.
Today the street has recovered somewhat from it's past but there is still an air of neglect and abondoned, bombed and shelled buildings are still common along the busy road.

Directions: Walk west from the Stari Most along Onescukova and you will come to Bulevar. Walk towards the overly tall tower of the Catholic Church.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
