    Kujundziluk - Eastern Side - Onescukova

    While the Kujundziluk is locally seen to be the western side of the river and the traditional base for local craftspeople and merchants, Kujundziluk extends across the river and is equally as charming along Onescukova Street and around. This street is also filled with many quaint craft and souvenir stores (sometimes a little tacky and sometimes charming) but also has a good variety of cafes, bars, restaurants and ice cream parlours (which seem to be a Bosnia & Herzegovina institution!!!)
    The street runs alongside the small Radobolja river and there are great views down to the rive below.

    Kujundziluk - Western Side

    The area directly built up on the eastern side of the Stari Most is known as Kujundziluk and is the traditional craft area of the city of Mostar. The area has for centuries been the location for the city's brass and craft workers and this tradition lives on today. The rea grew out of the establishment of a trade guild, 'esnaf' which established Mostar as a powerful trade and manufacturing centre over the years.
    The area is one of the most delightful areas of the city to walk along. As you cross the Stari Most bridge you curve gently onto the cobblestone street housing many of these brass workshops, wood craft shops, souveir shops and cafes. The street slopes gently upwards and as you look back you are treated to one of the best views of the Old Bridge. Just soaking up the atmosphere of this lively street is a highlight of any trip to Mostar, especially in the evening when the bus loads of day-tripping tourists have left and you have the place to share only with the locals!

    kujundziluk is a special part of Mostar. It is a main street where people are crowded on the streets, in cafes, restorants and other shops. Kujundziluk is a turkish name for copper craftsman where they create copper trades and sell them. It is an old trade profession in bosnia and hercegovina, very creative, decorative and beautiful. They sell also a lot of other stuffs that could be fascinating you. Have a great shopping there!

    ~KUJUNDZILUK~

    Kujundziluk

    Kujundziluk is an artisan district right by Neretva River. The area is located on the main street when you get off Stari Most on the eastern side of Neretva. The street is lined with short buildings that have a great view of Neretva and the western side of the city. The main floors of the buildings serve as small shops that sell all kinds of items. Some are used as workshops for local artists who make various copper items like jewellery, souvenirs, coffee pots etc.

    Since the shops were located right on the front line during the war some were considerably damaged. Most areas of Kujundziluk have been restored since the war but do not be surprised if you see facades with bullet holes in them.

    A view from south

    Kujundziluk, the old bazaar, is placed beside the left river bank, northerly from the Old Bridge. It is named after "kujundzije", craftsmen who struck the gold and whose workshops were numerous in the area. Together with the Old Bridge, Kujundziluk creates wonderful unique architectural whole.

    This area is around the old bridge. Most of it has been beautifully restored. It has wonderful craft shops and restaurants and is a really pretty area for a stroll.

    This is a street that's pretty popular, it's near everything- the restaurants, shopping, and the great cafes. This is where I spent most of my time from my own visit to Mostar.
