Mostar is magical despite its scars. Dusk is an enchanting time as the lights of the city come alive and the Stari Most bridge is backlit by a setting sun. The name Mostar, dates back to the 1400s and comes from the term “mostari” or bridge keepers.
Mostar bears its Ottoman roots with pride. The Stari Most was originally built by Suleyman the Magnificent in the 15th century. What you see today is a perfectly reproduction after it was bombed during the Balkan War. Many of old Mostar’s Turkish houses have been beautifully preserved or restored and the Ottoman quarter has some handsome specimens of the architecture from that era.
