Plucked from the pages of fairy tale, Mostar is a city that screams for the recognition and offering above and beyond something you would get on a regular, couple of hours, walking tours.
This is the reason we have decided to go steps further and create a unique experience which will guide you through the entrance to a whole new world of contrasts and a lifetime journey through the splendor and misery, gloom and hope.
We will ride, walk and talk, cry and laugh, feel the city’s pulse and learn its screaming stories. We will help you make friends with Mostar and Mostarians. Instead of fast fading memories, our team will assemble the Mostar puzzles for you and help you create the clear abundance of pictures and emotions sticking around forever.

Divided as Berlin used to be, but without obvious physical borders, Mostar is a city where the imaginary walls occupy people’s minds separating this unique gem into Croatian and Bosnian part.
Western part of Mostar is a part belonging to a Croatian majority and its vibrant streets will drag us into the historical whirlpool of Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian Empires, the Yugoslav Utopia and the total eclipse of human mind resulting in siege and the bloodshed in the 90s.
Nice and easy walk will guide us through some of the most crucial locations which will help us understand the needs and stories this city is urging to tell:
From modernisation to captivating tradition and “Bosniak” side of the city. The story of East Mostar begins with the beautifully preserved Ottoman bazaar and an abundance of millhouse restaurants, craft shops and trinket sellers twinkling across the gushing Neretva.
Old town of Mostar is known for being carpeted with its glittering pastel rainbow cobblestones densely packed with wide open shops, preserved houses and verandas, and domes of mosques and minarets.
We will take a stroll in cobblestone labyrinth of the UNESCO protected historical centre of Mostar, and visit the symbols of the coexistence of communities from diverse backgrounds:
Although geographically belongs to eastern part of the city, Mostar Rock School takes no sides, it rather belongs to the entire city.
To round up a story of east and west, we will meet with the locals and a man whose childhood was marked by military conscription before he turned the age of 13. Together with a group of local artists he managed to launch the initiative under the auspices of the idea of one school, under one roof, for all the people regardless of their cultural background.
We will walk the premises of the Rock School, have a drink with local artists in the Pavarotti Center and learn about the Mostar youth, art, music and above and beyond attempts to reconcile the oppressed human minds by creating the strong bonds and breaking the limiting psychological walls.
As soon as you put your foot in Mostar, you will notice you are being followed by the hill towering the city and a big Roman Catholic Cross which, with its massiveness, serves its purpose in attracting the attention no matter which part of the city you currently are.
During a cca 20 min drive through the Herzegovinian karst we will replace the pastel rainbow of cobblestones with the incredible views reaching into the depths of Herzegovina and stretching all the way to incredible mountains Prenj, Čvrsnica and Velež, the old giant and silent Mostar guardian.
Due to its strategic importance during the 90s, Hum Hill is nowadays bordering with surrounding land mines, negative emotions and still present tension between the two sides of the city.
Half an hour drive through narrow roads hugged by the expanse of green valleys and amazing views will take us to Fortica Hill. This is a place where east meets west, a place that belongs everybody and nobody.
Nowadays, Fortica Hill represents a heaven for anyone into outdoor activities such as via ferrata, cycling, paragliding, hiking or enjoying the adrenaline rush while taking the longest zip line in the country.
Grasped by nature and sunset colours, we will take a skywalk on 35m long platform towering the city of Mostar and enjoy a drink embracing Mostar as a symbol of reconciliation of cultural, traditional, ethnic and religious differences.
Those of you who would like to try out in some of the Fortica outdoor activities please check our Opt. extras and contact our team.
