Things to See and Do in Mostar
We spent two weeks in Mostar and found plenty to see and do. Not only did we see the obvious attractions, but came across all sorts of interesting sights.
Many visit Mostar on day trips, but you’ll miss out if you do that. Stay for at least a few days and explore the town.
No visit to Mostar would be complete without seeing Stari Most. It’s usually the first place that visitors head for. See Stari Most, Mostar for more photos and information.
Walk around the town and you’ll see war-damaged buildings all around you. I wrote more about them at War-damaged Buildings, Mostar.
Bosnia is known for its delicious food. You’ll be spoilt for choice if you want to eat traditional Bosnian food. One of our favorite restaurants was Restoran Emen.
Personal War Memorial
This was quite sad in many ways. Someone had put up a small memorial on a lamppost to remember someone that died during the war. I assume this must have been a family member who may have died at this spot. Terribly sad.
Wherever I travel to in the world, I’m always on the lookout for colorful street art. There is plenty in Mostar. See Mostar Street Art for more images.
Crooked Bridge is very close to Stari Most but many people miss it.
Bruce Lee Statue
This is one of the more unusual attractions in Mostar. This is the last place I’d expect to see a statue of Bruce Lee. But there it is in Park Zrinjevac.
Mostar Peace Bell Tower
Mostar Peace Bell Tower was built in the year 2000 and stands 107.2 meters tall. There is a viewing platform at a height of 75 meters that has a great view of the city. It costs 7 BAM (3.5 EUR) to go up.
Park Zrinjevac, Mostar
If the weather is good, Park Zrinjevac is a great place to spend an afternoon. It’s very popular with local families and there’s a great café, Klub Kariola, right next to it. It’s also right next to Sniper Tower and some other interesting war-damaged buildings.
