Mostar will take your breath away with its Ottoman-era architecture. A main attraction is the Old Bridge, destroyed in 1990’s and recently rebuilt. Thrill-seekers can jump off the bridge into the cold water; it’s allowed. Mostar was almost completely destroyed during the Bosnian War; the village was under siege for nine months. Today, it’s a charming little heaven on earth, but you can still see the bullet holes in the walls of the Red Cross building.
