Mostar - meditaranian gem of Bosnia and Herzegovina

The world-famous Stari Most (Old Bridge) is beyond doubt the gem of Herzegovina.

 This Ottoman stone bridge rising above the turquoise Neretva River with dozens of cosy cafés and restaurants lure you to visit and soak in the Mediterranean atmosphere.

While you enjoy the local cheeses and wines you will probably witness some of the brave young divers jumping off the bridge into the icy Neretva River.

If you are visiting in July, you can enjoy the annual International Diving off the Bridge competition which has been taking place in Mostar for over four centuries. 

Mostar is also famous by its old square with plenty of traditional crafts, old cobbled streets and eternal sunshine.
