Mostar was a beautiful and an unexpected surprise.
I booked my bus online on Get By Bus from Dubrovnik to Mostar (East) on the Globtour bus. The trip was just a little over three hours.
Tip: Make sure you are there by the bus stop on time or even before time because the bus gets busy sometimes and if the seats have been taken you will just have to stand or wait for another bus. Also have some change with (1-2 euros) for your luggage.
When we arrived to the Bosnian boarders, the police came in to check the passports. The policeman took my passport and a few others with him for a check outside. I felt so unsettled when the bus moved without my passport getting back to me, but it turns out the policeman gave it to the driver and took few minutes till I got it. The very heavy rain outside made the bus leak on my head so that wasn't too cool, but other than that the trip was smooth.
I think everyone should at least stay two days in Mostar. I really wanted to stay longer, but my time was limited. Here are some reasons to inspire you to visit.
Eight Reasons to Visit Mostar
Reason 1. The old Bridge
I know this is the most obvious thing, but it is seriously stunning and feels like a view from a fairytale. It was first built in the 16th in the Ottoman period. It survived the second world war, but it was destroyed in 1993. I am so proud that the city managed to rebuild its old centre and the bridge after the war.
Photo Tip for Mostar: Go up to the mosque's minaret for a beautiful bridge photo and a 360 of Mostar.
