TNT Magazine has recommended Mostar as the destination that should be put on a travellers’ bucket list.
The magazine’s writer Clare Vooght describes the city as the rising star of the Balkans, and she is no short of praise for Bosnia and Herzegovina either.
“I’m here because travel junkies have dubbed Bosnia one of the world’s most exciting undiscovered destinations. Its rugged landscapes, clear rivers and rich East-meets-West history under the Romans and Ottomans are the drawcards,” writes Vooght.
Vooght takes in local attractions such as the Old Town’s stunning Koski Mehmed Pasha and Mostar’s famous Old Bridge, saying that “in-the-know travellers, notably Aussie backpackers, make a beeline for this bridge to take a precision jump into five-metre-deep water”.
Her short break to Mostar also includes a local cookery lesson, and Vooght concludes her visit saying “that Bosnia really does have it all – food, history, architecture, natural beauty, a fighting spirit and a darn good sense of humour”.
