This is an ideal trip for those who want to try something exotic and something else than that they are used to. For centuries, Mostar has been a place where two different cultures meet: the western and the eastern one, as well as two different religions: Christianity and Islam. This is why you can see an interesting connection and mixture of civilisation in the architecture, the customs and the life of the people of this old town, located on the river Neretva. The bridge on the river, which gave this town the name, the bazaar, the mosques and a walk through Mostar will help you to feel the magic of the orient! Driving from Split we'll have a chance to cross the border between Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina where the city of Mostar is situated. It is thanks to the river Neretva that Mostar was able to develop as a city in the desert-like landscape of Herzegovina. Neretva’s size turned Mostar very early in to a trading centre of the region. Mostar got its name after that same Bridge, or more precisely after the bridge keepers. They used to guard the bridge and were called “Mostari”, thereby the city got its name. Mostar’s population in 2003 was 105,448. With its hot summers and mild winters, Mostar is also one of Europe’s sunniest cities. What makes this city known is it’s famous bridge. The Old Bridge was built by the Ottoman empire in 1565. It was the great architect Mimar Hajrudin who had succeded with the impossible mission to cross the Neretva river with a single span stone bridge. An unique place with an unique bridge. Mostar is like a painting, and the bridge is the star. Arching over the green water, it forms the center of the old town and the focal point for every restaurant, vista and patio in the vicinity.
