A few facts about Mostar
Mostar is situated on the Neretva River and is the fifth-largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Mostar was named after the bridge keepers (mostari) who in the medieval times guarded the Stari Most (Old Bridge) over the Neretva.
The Old Bridge, which was built by the Ottomans in the 16th century, is one of Bosnia and Herzegovina's most visited landmarks, and is considered an exemplary piece of Islamic architecture in the Balkans.
The stone bridge, the Old Bridge (Stari most), was erected in 1566 on the orders of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificentand at 28 metres (92 feet) long and 20 metres (66 feet) high, quickly became a wonder in its own time.
The famous Turkish traveller EvliyaÇelebivisited the city and wrote in the 17th century how:the bridge is like a rainbow arch soaring up to the skies, extending from one cliff to the other.
The bridge was destroyed during the war of 1990s and the battles that took place around the city and the Old Bridge had to undergo extensive reconstruction after the war.
What to visit while in Mostar
Mostar has architecturally noteworthy buildings in a wide range of styles that are a mixture of indigenous and foreign styles.
Such styles are visible in Mostar's Italianate Franciscan church, the Ottoman MuslibegovićaHouse, the Dalmatian Ćorović House and the Old Gymnasium, which features Andalusian and Mamluk elements and is the result of the Austro-Hungarian desire to promote Bosnian national identity.
Several Ottoman inns also survived, along with other buildings from this period of Mostar's history, such as fountains and schools.
There are number of surviving late Ottoman houses in the old city centre that demonstrate the component features of this form of domestic architecture: upper storey for residential use, hall, paved courtyard, and verandah on one or two storeys.
The CejvanCehaj Mosque, dating back to 1552, is the oldest mosque in Mostar and later it became a madrasa or Islamic school.
The Old Bazaar called the Kujundziluk is named after the goldsmiths who traditionally created and sold their wares on this street, and still sells authentic paintings and copper or bronze carvings of the Stari Most, pomegranates, which are the natural symbol of Herzegovina, or the stećaks, medieval tombstones that are found in Bosnia and in Croatia.
The Koski Mehmed Paša Mosque, built in 1617, is open to visitors, who may enter the mosque and take photos free of charge. The minaret is also open to the public and is accessible from inside the mosque.
Just around the corner from the mosque is the Tepa Market, a busy marketplace since Ottoman times, where mostly fresh produce grown in Herzegovina is sold and, when in season, the figs and pomegranates are also very popular. Local honey is also a prominent specialty, being produced all over Herzegovina.
The Catholic church and Franciscan monastery of St. Peter and Paul is also an iconic city landmark and the monastery bell tower rises high above the city.
