    Karadoz-Bey +Koski Mehmed-Pasha Mosques

    inner-courtyard at Koski Mehmed-Pasha

    I was lucky to be able to visit two of the many town's mosques: the Karadoz-Bey and Koski Mehmed-Pasha. Strictly speaking they are not off-the-beaten-path, but they will be soon. They both were damaged in the war and are now undergoing complete reparation: when reparation will be finished, non-muslims will not be allowed to enter them anymore. Of the two, Karadoz-Bey is the most prettily decorated - a real jewel of Islamic art

    It's very sad, but people need to see. After leaving the Old Town, it is very easy to destruction, especially on the Muslim side. It brings a somber, humbling feel to a Mostar experiece, but it is important to understand.

    On the road between Mostar and Sarajevo is this railroad tressle that was blown up by the partisans in WW2 to stop the advancing Italians. It stands as a monument to the bravery of the Yugoslav resistance.

    Next door is the Resistance Museum.

    NERETVA RIVER

    It brings a beautiful scenery to Mostar. Also Mostar has The bridge because of Neretva :) It's a beautiful river and gives the feeling of freshness to the city.

    Mostar Bridge

    It's an unforgetable scene at Neretva River with Mostar Bridge on it. I always remember it with a big smile on my face :)

    Mostar is rimmed by mountains and farms.

    Farms, farms, farms

    This photo shows the landscape of the area. Mostar is located on a river in a deep valley so almost all the plain is farmland and houses are locate on the slopes.

    Mostar

    I love the cobble stone streets. Mostar to me is the most ancient looking city and that's what I love about it.

    Another pic of Mostar- that bridge there now is where Stari Most (Old Bridge) used to be. It is actually currently being built and should be opened this year.

    In a beautiful setting on the river is one of the palace's of former Yugoslav leader Tito. It had the hell bombed out of it during the war and sits eerily empty.
