Mostar is most famous for its iconic medieval arched bridge, uniting the banks of the Neretva River. In fact, this bridge represents Mostar’s significance as a historical and tourist site, having been destroyed during the recent war and since rebuilt. An incredible symbol of reconciliation with a fascinating war-torn past nestled in one of the Balkans’ most beautiful landscapes, Mostar is well worth a visit, even if short, and its surroundings warrant thorough exploration.
