Sarajka, first picture is simply...breathtaking! Is it possible that place like that really exist, and after a 5 years long bloody war?

Neretva, bridge, old city, ottoman mosques...it all gives Mostar unresistable charm!

^ You remind me of an article I read here. It made me laugh, it said:

"For most in the West, Bosnia is still a terrifying non-destination. Polls in many countries in Western Europe show a majority of 20-somethings believe the country is still dangerous, more than 15% in the United Kingdom and Belgium thought the war was still ongoing...

...Tens of thousands of tourists enter the country each year as part of a Croatian holiday...

...The contrast created by this mix is ironic...

Interestingly enough, day excursions to Bosnia are among the most popular packages offered by Croatian tourist agencies. Buses now travel to Mostar from the Croatian port cities of Split, Ploce, and Dubrovnik several times daily. While 20-somethings in London are terrified to even consider Bosnia as a holiday destination, grandmothers in Berlin are framing photographs of themselves on Mostar's famed Old Bridge, and hanging crucifixes from Medugorje."

Hahaha

Mostar Is Very Beautiful! It should be a must-see when Traveling to the Former Yugoslavian region.

Wow, I agree... the first pan is just amazing! The government should really start a campaign in the key regions across Europe to educate people and draw tourists. People just don't know, well... make them know and they will come, for sure.

Perhaps start a couple of ads at CNN, like Croatia!

The money will return, I promise... hehe

Simply wonderful! BTW, do you have any (approximate) tourism statistics for Mostar? With so many travelers visiting the town from Croatia, are their numbers now approaching the pre-war level?

^ Hahaha.

It's apparently my own term, then. So if I invented it, I get to define it.

Dalmatian Architecture will be anything in either Croatia, Bosnia, or Montenegro which doesn't directly match Roman, Ottoman, Byzantine influences but seems to be a little bit of a combination. They must be found only along the Adriatic, or within 150 km of the coast.

Isn't Dalmatian architecture a subcategory of Venetian architecture?

Thats because Dalmatia extended further south taking in most of the Montenegrian coast. Places like Kotor, Budva etc were a part of Dalmatia. Because of border changes these sections were given to Montenegro in the 20th century. If you look at most coastal Montengrin cities you will see that the Catholic churches dominate the town square and yet supposedly Montenegro is an "Orthodox" country. Anyway thats just a bit of history.

Nice thread BTW Mila!
