We booked accommodation in a private house as the forecast promised storms and rain for the night, so we thought it’s better to stay among four walls than in our tent. The house was in the edge of old town (2 minutes walk) and had nice view to a mosque and a church, and to the lightnings as well!
Old town and the Old Bridge (Stari Most) – UNESCO world heritage
One day is enough to visit the city. Maybe even too much. The old town is very small. You can walk across it in few minutes (if there are not so many tourists around you). If you can, visit it on weekdays, it will be easier to take some cool photos! The buildings are pretty, so is the bridge over the Neretva river. They are well repaired after the war! There are many souvenir shops from hand-made things through war metastabilis to Chinese products.
We tried one of the pretty and famous restaurant as well. You cannot call it budget, but the food was good and the waiters and waitresses were dressed in traditional clothes. We took a Bosnian meat plate and it had flavors reminding us home (Poland and Hungary as well!). I guess it is not a question that we liked the food!
Cross on the hill
If you have time, you should climb up to the hill on the south of the town. We did and didn’t regret it (except that I got soaked as the storm arrived and I didn’t have my jacket with me it was a great stop). We could take a look to the city from the top and explore few old bunkers on the hill as well.
