Visit the Ancient city of Split in Croatia and historic Mostar in Bosnia & Herzegovina, once a frontier town of the Ottoman Empire. One of the perks of traveling to Croatia is that it’s easy to visit its neighbouring countries. The city of Mostar is only a 2-3 hours’ drive away from Split.
Mostar (literally meaning “Bridge-town”) was once a frontier town of the Ottoman Empire. It was named after the bridge keepers or “mostari” who guided the Old Bridge in the Middle Ages. The city is situated in the Neretva river valley, surrounded by the Hum Hill and the Velež Mountain.
The UNESCO-protected Mostar Old town with the Old Bridge is unique for its architectural diversity. Here you can admire exemplary Ottoman architecture, alongside with Mediterranean and Western European architecture. Stroll the Old Town’s cobbled streets, cross the historic bridge, visit the Mosque or relax in one of Mostar’s cafés. Soon enough, you’ll feel transported to some other time, lulled in tranquility of this slow-paced, relaxed historic city.
From Mostar, head to Croatia and the popular city of Split.
Split is the second largest city in Croatia and one of the oldest settlements in the Adriatic. The Ancient Palace in its centre, built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian, is a real masterpiece of Ancient architecture and a top place to visit.
Relatively easy to get around, this town makes a perfect destination for your city break throughout the whole year. Although a vibrant city, Split has many nice beaches you can relax on and is close to islands of Hvar and Brač, perfect for a day trip with family or friends.
Note: A minimum of 2 people is required.
