After one extremely windy mountain bus ride from Kotor ($41 USD), I arrived in rainy Mostar in Bosnia & Herzegovina. The skies cleared up the next day, and I was able to fully enjoy my stay in the city. Mostar is a dichotomy in many ways: between East & West, modern and traditional, and new buildings that stand next to ones that still bear the scars and pain of a not so distant war.
Where to stay in Mostar:
$10 USD/night. Free hot breakfast is included in the price! Great location, wonderful and caring staff, CLEAN, spacious outdoor courtyard/hangout area, and I really enjoyed the bright pink, orange, and yellow decorations throughout the space.
Love all your pics! Hope to make it to Mostar one day. I’d imagine an eerie feeling while walking through the tattered buildings , but the local artists seems to bring it back to life.
Thank you! I felt like I was stopping every 3 minutes to take a picture while walking around. It did feel eerie at times, but you’re right–the vibrant graffiti art makes it feel modern and lively. Fingers crossed you make it to Mostar soon!
