Mostar location

Mostar is located just inland from the Adriatic coast. It’s the cultural capital of the Herzegovina region, in the southeast part of Bosnia & Herzegovina.

How to get to Mostar

Even though it has an international airport, with most of its direct flights to Croatia and Italy, the best way to get to Mostar is by road. If you’re coming from Croatia, take the highway 62, just a bit up the Makarska riviera.

Additionally, buses run daily in summer months mostly from Dubrovnik (check schedules here), but also from Split and Makarska, at least.

How to find accommodation in Mostar

It is easy  to find high-end apartments, hostels and guesthouses at laughable prices. We ended up applying more search filters than usually  in wifi included, terrace with a view, centrally-located and with 9+ review score. It was still less than 12EUR per person. You can use this exact same search query using this link.

Do not miss in Mostar

Obviously the Stari Most. We also really recommend a walk farther out of the Old Town to the war front line. It’s a completely different setting that will make you look at Mostar with other eyes.
