The old Bridge 'Stari most' on the river Neretva in Konjic. Destroyed in a 2.war.
The year of 1682. on the river Neretva was build stone bridge, rarity simbol classical turkish .....
This bridge was a simbol through history of this town.
Godine 1682. nad Neretvom se izvinu kameni most, rijedak primjer klasicne turske mostogradnje. Ako je ista u istoriji simboliziralo ovaj grad, to je, bez sumnje, bio taj most kojeg su 3. marta 1945. godine, na oslobodjenje grada, njemacka vojska, pri povlacenju, digli u zrak. Most je ostao na slikama, na fotografijama, na drvorezbarskim daskama cuvenih konjickih majstora, u kucama onih koji nisu prestali sanjati da æe nad Neretvom ponovo vidjeti njegov luk.
Stone called 'Stecak'Stecci...
Stone called 'Stecak'
Stecci are ancient tombstones that line our countryside. The ancient peoples of this land left their beautiful marks tucked on ridges and mountain sides wherever they may have settled. These types of medieval graveyards are specific to this region and mark the heretic “Bosnian Church” practices of early Christianity here. Engraved are ancient symbols - all connected to earth, family, sun, moon, tribal warriors, dance and praise to the gods. Many of the stecci date back over 700 years and preserve a precious part of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s ancient past. You won’t find these in other parts of the world... these tiny remains of our history are a national symbol and an expression of the culture and art that has survived and thrived over the centuries.

Wearing Fez/Fes :) at Turkish House
When you visit Turkish House in Mostar, you'll see a fez for visitors. You can wear that traditional hat then give a big smile to the camera :)
Maybe because I'm a gardener but I found the ahy drying method fascinating. Instead of bundling the hay they hung it from a special rack. They looked like little huts in the countryside.

Jumpers on the Mostar Bridge
Most of these guys are just posers, trying to impress the girls - you'll wait for ages before you see any of them jump in.

Vestages of War
Gone, but not forgotten. The deep scars of war are all too apparent both on the buildings and the populace.
How to meet the locals....
Shopping! (maybe not cultural but a great way to cross cultures and meet the locals!) Here I am with a man who carves all different wooden things and who was quite happy to chat for a while...
