Mostar is the fourth largest city in BiH, but the major city in Herzegovina. It is situated on the Neretva River and its name is derived from the old bridge in the centre which means 'the bridge keepers' - mostari. Mostar is split by the old bridge; this bridge also separated the ethnic communities of Muslim and Croat and in 1993 the area was flung into the limelight when the world watched as the bridge was brought down by Serbian fire. At the time the bridge wasn't a very significant, but it became the symbol of unity. The bridge is now the focal point for tourists and during the summer you’ll see local divers jumping off for a price; Mostar is a wonderful place to explore and has a nice mix between Turkish and Croat. It has narrow cobbled streets with lots of little shops and stalls selling local handicrafts, paintings, bronze works etc Being in there allowed me to understand a bit about the conflict that took place years ago.
