Guide To Visiting Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina BRIDGE
The wonderful town of Mostar is one of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s most mainstream goals, and makes for the ideal escape from Dubrovnik. With its cobblestone avenues, old structures, and maybe the most pleasant extension on the planet, this town looks like to some degree a fantasy. Mostar draws in a large number of guests a year with the Old Bridge (Stari Most) being its top fascination.
As I would like to think, Mostar merits something other than a day trip, which seems, by all accounts, to be most of sightseers nowadays. By and by, a day trip is superior to nothing and is the ideal method to escape the madness of Dubrovnik.
HISTORY OF MOSTAR
Mostar is situated in the Herzegovina district of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It began as a modest community on an exchanging course between the Adriatic Coast and focal Bosnia.
In 1468 the district went under control of Ottoman standard. In 1566, compelled of Suleiman the Magnificent (a similar man who changed Constantinople into Istanbul), the wooden extension was modified in stone, and this celebrated scaffold represented 427 years. This stone scaffold was a showstopper when it was manufactured and it is said to be one of the most significant structures worked during the Ottoman time.
Austria-Hungary assumed responsibility for the territory in 1878 and controlled until 1918, when Bosnia and Herzegovina turned out to be a piece of Yugoslavia. In 1992, Bosnia and Herzegovina pronounced autonomy from Yugoslavia. In 1994, Stari Most was decimated during the Croat-Bosniak struggle.

It takes close to 20 minutes to walk the old town so walk gradually.
