Where East meets West

Human settlement on the river Neretva, between the Hum Hill and the Velez Mountain, has existed since pre history. The name Mostar was first mentioned in a document dating from 1474, taking its name from the bridge keepers, the mostari.


In 1468, Mostar came under Ottoman rule and urbanization of the settlement began. Between 1520 and 1566, the wooden bridge was replaced with stone. Since its completion, the modestly-sized city now within Bosnia and Herzegovina has come to symbolise the extent of Ottoman expansion into Christian Europe. A beautiful, diverse city where East meets West.
