I visited Mostar during a trip to the former Yugoslavia in October 2007.
What a wonderful place, which has bounced back from a troubled past to become a thriving compact city once more.
This is typified by its famous bridge over the River Neretva, which was completely destroyed in the ’90s conflict but has been built back up block by block to its former glory using much of the stone from the original structure that had been built by the Ottomans in the 16th century.
This short video shows a member of Mostar’s diving club plunging 24 metres into the water.
You will be able to read about my travels in Bosnia and twenty-five other countries in the region in my forthcoming book ‘On The Beaten Track – Travels in Eastern Europe’.
