- Country: Bosnia and Herzegovina
Mostar has a cruel recent history that includes mass executions, systematic rapes and ethnic cleansing, and many of the city’s buildings are still full of bullet holes. In the center stands dilapidated bombed ruins with warning to enter. But it is primarily carsija, the old town, that attracts all the tourists. With the help of the world community, Mostar has been painstakingly rebuilt his historic buildings, and today it is a joy to stroll among the low houses of natural stone with its uneven stone streets. In July 2005, Mostar’s Old Town was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Mostar had around 125,000 inhabitants in 2009 and was named after the city’s pride, the beautiful old bridge (Stari Most) in the Old Town.
A great offering for Mostar’s war-traumatized children is the Pavarottis Music Center, which aims to be a cultural center where children and youth can learn about music, theater and art.
