A popular day trip from Dubrovnik is a trip into nearby Bosnia and Herzegovina
to visit the city of Mostar, a place where East and West meet!
The Ottoman influence is so strong that you will forget you're in the Balkans, right in the middle of Europe,
and think you have been teleported to some oriental city.
Visit the most famous attraction in Mostar, the Old Bridge and gain a better understanding of the Balkans,
including the war that plagued this area in the 1990s. This tour also takes you to Počitelj, a charming village with an unusual mosque,
and Kravice waterfalls, where you can take a refreshing swim.

Diving off the Mostar Old Bridge
Mostar Old Town
During our scenic drive along the coastline, you get to enjoy the spectacular views of the azure Adriatic Sea while driving to the Bosnian border. First stop is in the town of Neum, Bosnia’s only seaside town. We make 10 minutes stop here.
After Neum, we continue to Počitelj, a charming village with Turkish architecture that sustained extensive damage during the homeland war.
Počitelj hosts the longest operating art colony in southeast Europe, artists from around the world gather here to paint. We make 20 minutes stop here.
Finally, we arrive in Mostar where you have about 3 hours of free time. You get to cross the Old Bridge which is listed amongst UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. The bridge separates Catholics and Muslims and it was rebuilt after being destroyed in 1993. Because of the fighting between them during the war in the 90s, Mostar is now a divided city. One side is Catholic only and the other side is heavily Muslim. The bridge is also famous for it's crazy and dangerous tradition of jumping off the 24 meters height, which began in 1664. Don't try to do it because many people have been injured or killed while jumping!
Besides the Old Bridge, another Mostar attractions include the Turkish House, historic mosques, and the Old Bazaar Kujundziluk with lots of shops where many local artisans sell their traditional handmade crafts. Be prepared to bargain for discounts off the initial prices. Plenty of places accept Croatian Kuna and Euros, so there is no need to exchange any currency for Bosnian Marks.
During your day trip to Mostar from Dubrovnik, try some traditional Turkish cuisine. Prepare yourself for complete satisfaction with Bosnian specialties like Ćevapi (grilled dish of minced meat), burek (meat pastry), baklava (sweet dessert pastry made of layers of filo filled with chopped nuts and sweetened and held together with syrup or honey).
Our last stop is Kravice waterfalls, the natural splendor. You have 45 minutes to refresh yourself there.
