Bosnian national monument, Muslibegović house in Mostar


Due to its cultural and historical importance, as well as its preserved traditional artifacts, the Muslibegovič House is a unique tourist destination in Mostar.

This residential complex of unique architecture was inscribed on the list of national monuments and has a dual function, as a harmonic museum with educational component, and as a top class hotel in the category of cultural and historic heritage.

This complex was built three centuries ago and covers over 500 square meters.

Its residential part and outhouses with authentic water reservoir are completely separated. Due to care of the owners, each original detail has been preserved.

The complex is particularly interesting because it did not follow the typical architectural standards of that time, as it was built towards the end of the Ottoman period and shows visible influences of the European styles.
