Mostar, day 2

We spent the day wandering around Mostar. At 5 pm we took a very interesting walking tour lead by a guy who lived through the Bosnian War.

The Stari Most (old Bridge), built 1566, destroyed 1993 and rebuilt in 2004

A WWII Partisan cemetery

Abandoned building with visible artillery damage

Bosnian coffee

Mostar by by the river

The Crooked Bridge

Our guide for the evening walking tour

The only integrated high school in Mostar. Even here, the students take separate history classes (because Bosniacs & Croats have different versions) and language (although our guide said that it is impossible for him to determine whether someone is speaking Bosnian or Croatian).

Another one of the many destroyed buildings in Mostar

Sniper tower was a bank building before the war.

Some photos after the sun had set
