Trip Report A Glimpse Of Mostar And Sarajevo

Jump to last reply

With a few days left to return our rental car we decide to make our way back to Zagreb via Mostar and Sarajevo, Bosnia.

Leaving Dubrovnik we enjoy the beautiful coastal scenery we missed on our night time drive into the city. The weather is much improved from a few days ago. It is still a bit on the cold side but much of the wind is gone. Under mostly clear blue skies, our drive is delightful.

A brief stop at a border crossings puts us in Bosnia where while descending a hill we get a nice view of the Bosnian coastline. A few kilometers later and we are at another border crossing that puts us back into Croatia. Not as confusing as it seems as a part of Bosnia lies between two portions of Croatia's coast line.

A stop at “KONZUM” and we are again provisioned for our road trip with chocolates, cheese and tasty snacks. Another border crossing that takes a bit longer and we are now 44Km from Mostar. It is hard to imagine that less than 30 years ago this area was a war zone. Peace for most is definitely a good thing.

Along the way we find it interesting that a lot of the city signs with secondary names have those names blacked out graffiti style. Maybe something left over from the strife here.

Our journey to Mostar follows a river along mountainous landscapes with small communities and some vineyards along the way. Further down the road towering snow capped mountains can be seen in the distance.

Soon we arrive in the cultural capital of Herzegovina and take in views of the city from “The Old Bridge” built by the Ottomans in the 16th century. With the Neretva River flowing beneath us it is cool to experience another neat piece of Islamic architecture.

A brief stroll around the city and we stop in at Behar restaurant for lunch. Again, the food here is not only amazing but very affordable.

As afternoon calls for prayer are made across the city we get back on the road this time headed to Sarajevo.
