With all of this travel to Serbia it was about time Clara came along. Since she was coming this time we decided to road trip throughout the Balkans.
We rented a car and carved out a rough plan. Belgrade to Mostar to Dubrovnik to Kotor and back to Belgrade. With a week set aside for the whole trip we didn't want to plan too far in advance and instead let the road lead the way.
Part was from Belgrade to Mostar. This took us through the breathtaking Bosnian country side. Roads zig zagging through mountain ranges dotted with small lakes. After a day of driving we arrived in Mostar. For accommodations we lucked out with a room inside a museum. The Muslibegovic House is a 300 year old Ottoman style home that's half museum and half hotel now days. We got a beautiful room to call home for 2 nights while exploring the very charming Mostar.
Mostar is known for it's famous arching bridge that connects the two sides of the city. During the Bosnian war is was a place of constant fighting until it was destroyed. Rebuilt it's the must see of the city and a huge tourist attraction. We found mid day most of Old Town was swarming with tourists but by 4 pm, when all the tour buses leave, we were left with the whole city to ourselves.
Favorite spots in Mostar:
- Konoba Taurus (dinner spot with a pretty balcony spot)
- Koski Mehmed Pasha Mosque (have to get the ticket to go to the top)
- Tima-Irma (best traditional bbq in town)
- Terasa (cliff side drinks spot, super chill)
