In the last two years, tourism has increased dramatically in Bosnia and Herzegovina. When I visited Mostar this summer, I saw MANY tourists. There were French, German, English, Italian tourist groups walking around all over. Mostar even had some nice construction, when you continue to the new part of the city. The new shopping centers, offices, and a couple of cranes up. L3D3NI and I were pretty impressed with the city overall.

I don't know for Mostar, but Sarajevo has 28,000 tourists this past June and that's up 23% from the same month last year.

I don't know about the number, but apperantly it is popular for tourists to go to Croatia and then take day-trips to Mostar..So it probaly will be alot of tourists in the near future

Last month I made a superb car trip through Serbija and Bosnia. I was to Sarajevo,Mostar,Medjugorie,Zvornik and Neum. I must admit that I was disapointed... because it was too european!! I expected sth more wild, uncivilizated but it was just like in Czech Rep or Hungary :/ So the biggest wildness I found in back way in Poland
But the most incredible were the landscapes on the way! Mountains,rocks,water,forests and us. Fabulous!

Next year we are going to Albania and Macedonia, hope there I won't find thousends of tourists...

Of course these pics are incredible, but having visited the EE forum many times before, I'd like to see pics of other parts of the city.

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.

?
Why deny Venetian contribution to architecture in the area ? It's like denying Ottoman contributions to architecture in parts of the Balkans.

There's a big difference beetwen Dalmatian and Venetian architecture.

Venetian is mix of romanesque and gothic styles which did influence/merge with Dalmatian architecture in some ways, mostly church towers and portals.

Here's a typical Dalmatian town ;

Romanesque/gothic style church tower, surrounded with "indigenous" Dalmatian style buildings and houses :



btw, there are very few examples of Byzantine architecture left in Croatia, while Ottoman architecture never existed in present Croatia because it was never ruled by Ottomans.

Hi Bubach

Virtually all local architectures in Europe are bound to be a mix of something. That's what I mean by Venetian contribution (as opposed to architecture) to buildings in Dalmatia as opposed to calling architecture in Dalmatia Venetian. I see striking resemblances in different places that were trading outposts of the Venetian Republic across the eastern mediterranean: whether in Dalmatia, in Corfu`, in Cyprus, or in Krete. This obviously doesn't mean that there wasn't mixing and that this architecture is the same as the one found in Venice proper. Personally I think we should celebrate different influences on local architectures in Europe. I hope I explained what I meant to say

Yes, that's why I said to "parts of the Balkans" (not implying necessarily Croatia)

What a beautiful place Mostar has become. I remember the sadness I felt seeing those pictures of the destroyed bridge of Mostar and Mostar Old Town. Wonderful to see, that the town was beautifully restored to its former greatness. Seeing those pictures it is almost unbelievable, that only a few years ago there was war, destruction and killings.

Maybe that┤s the crazy continent we live at, instead of working together for our mutual benefit we wage wars against each other (but hopefully this has come to past).

And yes, one day I have to visit Mostar (but first I have to win in the lottery).
