The Old Town (Stari Grad): This is the historic and charming part of Mostar, where you can find many mosques, churches, synagogues, bazaars, museums, and cafes that showcase the heritage and traditions of Mostar. You can also enjoy the local cuisine, such as cevapi, burek, and baklava, and buy souvenirs and handicrafts from the shops and stalls.

The Koski Mehmed Pasha Mosque: This is one of the most beautiful and oldest mosques in Mostar, built in 1617 by the Ottoman governor of Bosnia.

The Muslibegovic House: This is a museum and a hotel that is housed in a traditional Ottoman mansion, built in the 18th century by a noble family. You can see the original furniture, costumes, weapons, and artworks that reflect the lifestyle and culture of the Ottoman era. You can also stay in one of the rooms and experience the hospitality and atmosphere of the house.

The Hub of Fine Arts: The Hub of Fine Arts is a unique intersection of the stylistic expressions of modernism and the artistic giants of the first half of the 20th century. With over 100 works of art, it offers an exceptional insight into the constants and revolutions of this art, revealing all the peculiarities of a time used as a reference point for creating a museum concept. 

Žitomislić Monastery Museum: This museum boasts one of the most significant collections of icons in the country, each piece narrating tales of devotion and divine craftsmanship. The icons within the museum's halls showcase the artistic prowess of Serbian, Greek (from the famed Italo-Cretan school), and Russian painters. Amongst these sacred masterpieces, one stands out – the revered icon "Umiljenje". This divine piece, one of only four of its kind globally, is believed to be the handiwork of the medieval artist Andrej Ricos. The crown jewel of the museum is undoubtedly the original monastery iconostasis from the 17th century, with the imperial doors painted in 1676 by the illustrious artist Radul. This awe-inspiring artifact stands as a testament to the rich religious history and artistry of the region.

Franciscan bell tower of peace: History intertwines with the present in this sacred space. Relics from the original church, spared by fire and bombardment, are now proudly displayed in the gallery of the Franciscan monastery. Adding to the splendor is the Mostar Peace Bell Tower, soaring at 107 meters, making it the tallest in the region. Erected on the site of the original bell tower from 1866, it houses five preserved bells from 1927 and two newer ones from 2015. Inside, visitors can immerse themselves in texts and photographs depicting the cultural and historical sites pivotal to Mostar and its surroundings. For those who seek an unparalleled panoramic view of Mostar's breathtaking beauty, the vantage point from the Mostar Peace Bell Tower offers an experience like no other.

Diocesan Gallery Of Friendship: Nestled in the heart of Mostar lies an emblem of art and faith: the Art Gallery of the Mostar-Duvno and Trebinje-Mrkan Dioceses. Founded in 1989 through the decree of Bishop Mons. Pavao Žanić, it was initially named the "Gallery of Friendship". Conceived with the mission of promoting modern art and safeguarding the Church's cultural heritage in Herzegovina, this gallery reflects the rich tapestry of art and faith intertwined throughout the ages.

Karadžozbeg Mosque: Located just a stone's throw away from the historic city center, it stands as one of the most grandiose and representative landmarks of 16th-century Islamic architecture. Constructed in 1557 under the visionary design of the celebrated Turkish architect Kodža Mimar Sinan, its interiors are a spectacle in themselves, lavishly adorned with intricate arabesques and floral motifs.

Tabačica Mosque: Commissioned by Hadži-Kurta, representing one of the oldest and most esteemed families in Mostar, the Tabačica Mosque boasts a history that's deeply intertwined with the very essence of the city. Located just a short stroll from the iconic Old Bridge, on the right bank of the shimmering Neretva River, its significance transcends its religious purpose.The mosque stands adjacent to the Tabhana district, historically renowned as the heart of leather crafting, where leather was processed, tanned, and sold. Deriving its name from 'tabaci', the local word for tanners, the Tabačica Mosque pays tribute to its leatherworking patrons and its vibrant surroundings.
