Day 4 Wednesday: Srebrenica was the largest mass murder of a people since the holocaust, and today we will remember the murder of more than 8000 Bosniak Muslims by visiting this memorial site.

Once we arrive at Mostar, hotel check-in and a visit to Koski Mehmet Pasha mosque and the legendary Stari Most.

We will stop for lunch here before visiting Pocitelj, where you can enjoy breath-taking views of the Neretva river from on top of the old Ottoman fortress.
