Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Mostar is a city and municipality in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the largest and one of the most important cities in the Herzegovina region. Mostar is situated on the Neretva river and is the fifth-largest city in the country. Mostar was named after the bridge keepers (natively: mostari) who in the medieval times guarded the Stari Most (Old Bridge) over Neretva river. The Old Bridge, built by the Ottomans in the 16th century, is one of the city's most recognizable landmarks. It's UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I've sent this postcard to myself when I went to Mostar for a trip with my friends. I had a really great time, Mostar is beautiful town with unique architecture, culture and people. I'll definitely return to Mostar soon. It was sad that I could send just a few cards from there (stamps were so hard-to-find!).
