Many buildings still have evidence of sniper fire. This charming old town with cobbled streets and history make you feel like you are stepping back in time. The main attraction is the ‘Stari Most’ stone bridge built in 1566 which spans the River Neretva. This has become a symbol of the city after years of painstaking work to restore this famous landmark after it was destroyed in 1993 by shelling.
The Stari Most Bridge is now a UNESCO World Heritage site and is the country’s most photographed landmark so don’t forget your camera!

The city has become even more popular recently as used for filming many scenes for Games of Thrones. Keep your eyes peeled as you explore the delights of this stunning city as you may spot a celebrity or two!
