Begin your journey at the Old Bridge (Stari Most), the city's most iconic landmark. This 16th-century Ottoman bridge is a UNESCO World Heritage site, connecting the two sides of the city across the picturesque Neretva River.

Nature lovers will appreciate the nearby Kravice Waterfalls, a breathtaking cascade of water located just 40 km south of Mostar. This natural wonder offers an idyllic setting for picnics, swimming and hiking. For a unique adventure, take a day trip to the nearby Blagaj Tekke, a historic Sufi monastery nestled against a cliff at the source of the Buna River.

When it comes to food and drink, Mostar offers a delectable array of local and international cuisines. Indulge in traditional Bosnian dishes, such as cevapi, burek and baklava, or sample fresh seafood from the Adriatic coast.

Parking in Mostar is available in several designated parking zones. The Old Town is pedestrianised, so you'll need to park in one of the nearby parking lots or on-street parking spaces. Be sure to pay for parking at the designated machines or via mobile apps, as fines can be issued for non-payment.

Traffic in Mostar is generally light, but it can become congested during peak hours and on weekends, especially in the summer months when tourists flock to the city. Be prepared for narrow streets and occasional traffic jams in the city centre. It's also worth noting that some of the roads in the Old Town are cobblestoned, which can be slippery when wet.

To rent a car in Mostar, you'll need a valid driver's licence from your home country, along with an International Driving Permit if your licence is not in the Latin alphabet.
