Mostar, Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bosnia and Herzegovina for The Lovely Old Bridge

After a very long and bumpy bus ride, we arrived to Mostar in the evening – luckily this is a small town, so it was pretty easy to find our way around and get to the hostel. Mostar is a place that has been through a lot in recent history (ethnic divisions exist to this day), but nowadays it seems to be the most popular tourist spot in Bosnia after Sarajevo.

In the morning, we were able to properly explore the Old Town, which is really charming, especially in summertime. The main attraction in Mostar is the Old Bridge, which was destroyed during the war, but rebuilt some ten years ago. These days, you can witness local divers, but also international enthusiasts who travel especially for the purpose of jumping of the bridge into the (very cold!) Neretva river. In the evening, we went to a little alternative place called OKC Abrašević, which had some pretty cool club nights on the weekend we were there. One more thing worth mentioning about Mostar is amazing food – I am being serious when I say Bosnia is probably where you will find best of Balkan cuisine, so chances are any restaurant you walk into will be amazing.
