10 activities everyone must experience
1. Stari Most
Wherever you read about Mostar, visiting the Old Bridge will always top the list of must-see landmarks. Built under the orders of Sultan Suleiman in 1557, a first glance at the bridge’s curved structure makes it obvious why it is so loved by historians and travellers alike. The original bridge managed to remain intact for the best part of 450 years until the terrible war in the 1990s, when it was shelled. Locals say that it took over 60 shells before the bridge finally collapsed; a testament to its fine Ottoman workmanship.
That’s right, no British health and safety rules here! Gather round the highest point of the bridge where brave jumpers will queue to hurl themselves into the cool jade waters of the Neretva River. While it looks pretty dangerous, it is considered a national pastime and is a great way to experience Mostar’s bubbly culture. However, only experienced jumpers are advised to take part.
