Mostar is a city that will definitely steal your heart. The city is located in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina, on the Neretva River and is the fifth-largest city in the country.

Stari Most (The Old Bridge), Ottoman-style bridge and Mostar's most notable architectural landmark, is considered one of the most exemplary pieces of Islamic  architecture in the Balkans. Stretching 28 metres across the Neretva river, it connects the two sides of the city. Stari Most proudly stood there for 427 years, until it was destroyed in 1993 during the Bosnian War. Thanks to post-war restoration efforts, a new bridge was built in 2004.

Just 40 kms outside of Mostar, Kravice Waterfalls is the absolute perfect place to spend a summer day. Around 25 metres high, the waterfalls cascade into a stunning emerald coloured lake.

Blagaj Tekke, also known as the Dervish Monastery, is considered to be one of Bosnia and Herzegovina's most holy and ancient sites. The stunning half-timbered tekija rests beside the fast-flowing blue green Buna River, which spills out of a darkened cliff-cave.
