    Excellent souvenir book - Mostar with surroundings

    by hopang Updated Apr 20, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: We also purchased an excellent souvenir book from bazaar in the Old Town of Mostar when we took a day trip from Dubrovnik to Mostar. The name of the book is Bosnia and Herzegovina - Mostar with surroundings which was dedicated to the honorable and distinguished ambassador of the United States of America to Bosnia and Herzegovina, his excellency Mr. Patrick S. Moon. It was printed in 2013 by Guidesmostar for Katalogizacija u publikaciji Nacionalna i univerzitetska biblioteka, Sarajevo. This souvenir book costs just €7.00 per book with a map of the Old Town of Mostar on the last two pages - definitely worth buying for reference and collection!

    Local souvenir crystals

    by hopang Written Apr 20, 2015

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: Another gift from Mostar that we really love and treasure is the local souvenir crystals with the figure of the Old Bridge sculptured inside. These crystals are available in almost every souvenir shop at the bazaar in the Old Town near the Old Bridge of Mostar. It costs just €4.00 or 8.00 convertible marks per piece. It really is worth buying both as a gift to friends and relatives back home or just keep it in the cupboard for collection. We too have large collections of fine glass and crystals at our apartment in Sweden.

    Souvenir magnets

    by hopang Updated Apr 20, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: We love refrigerator's magnets as souvenirs and we have large collections of refrigerator's magnets at our apartment in Sweden. We make it a point to purchase some refrigerator's magnets whenever and wherever we take a vacation in a foreign city and country.

    These kinds of refrigerator's magnets are available in many souvenir shops at bazaar in the Old Town of Mostar. Many of them are hand-made high quality refrigerator's magnets. It costs just €1.00 or 2.00 convertible marks per piece. We bought some for our friends and relatives back home in Sweden as well since they are really cheap and look impressive indeed..

    Packing List

    by Marcin75 Written Sep 7, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Expect that you will have to carry your bags upstairs or on gravel / uneven paths, so do not take too heavy ones.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take some warm clothing / raincoat with you - Bosnia is in the mountains and 25 degrees centigrades in Split (Croatia) does not mean that there is more then -5 in Sarajevo!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Basicly all is available in bigger cities. Normal set of medicines is sold by every pharmacy (they are modern and western-style).

    Photo Equipment: Popular films / batteries are widely accessible

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Well, expect mountain weather.

    Miscellaneous: Bosnia is now a normal country - you do not need to take many special things with you. Everything but books may be bought without big problems in bigger towns. It would be nice to have a guidebook bought abroad (although I haven't seen good ones), it seems that it is also easier to buy a map of BiH in somewhere else then in BiH. For sure you should bring many gifts for your friends in Bosnia - if you don't have friends there yet you will surely make many!

    Packing List

    by moomie Written Sep 2, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: There is no problem with toiletries and medical supplies in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Do bring mosquito repellent if you are travelling in summer, even though mosquitos are not a big problem.

    Photo Equipment: Photo equipment is easy to find, even if a bit expensive, and is of western standards.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you like hiking/camping, do bring gear, but be careful: quite a lot is still covered in mines.

    Miscellaneous: If you go to Bosnia-Herzegovina, you must have a passport. Most western nationals don't need a visa, but Aussies do. If you do need a visa, be sure to get it on beforehand, as the BH Border Service (DGS) will not issue you a visa on the border unless it is an emergency.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Winters can be nasty in these mostly mountaneous parts, so wrap up warm. You're definitely recommended to buy some traditional handicraft products like knitted clothes, socks, gloves and the like. They surely know how to make warm outfit there!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Nothing special, everything is available in Bosnia.

    Miscellaneous: Visas are still required for most countries. I don't know the list by heart, so ask at the appropriate institutions.
