About Mostar

Mostar is the biggest city in Herzegovina, located on the banks of Neretva River. It is also cultural and economic center of this area, with more than 130,000 inhabitants. The city is named after bridge keepers, who guarded numerous bridges at the river, back in the medieval times. 

It is the most famous for the beautiful historic ottoman-style bridge called the Old Bridge, which connects two geographically-divided ethnic groups. The bridge was destroyed in the recent war, but fortunately, it was rebuilt in 2004. The reconstruction of this famous bridge was led by UNESCO for almost seven years, so it is included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. Interesting fact is that some of the original pieces, which were found in the river, were used for the reconstruction of the Mostar Bridge. 

As far as the climate is concerned, Mostar is the warmest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina with its moderate Mediterranean climate with mild, but cold winters with no or small amounts of snow, and very hot summers with very high temperatures.
