^ Yes, the government of Portugal helped significantly. There are some weak ties between Mostar and Lisboa. Most of Mostar's Sefaradi Jews did not come from Spain, as they did in Sarajevo, Skopje, and other Balkans cities - but from Portugal. The old Jewish homes, businesses, and even other buildings designed by local Jewish builders have many Portuguese influences. I don't know what they are :D just that they're there. ;)

I'm happiest about the mosque still being colorful... in Sarajevo so many of the mosques that the Saudis financed the reconstruction of were painted completely white, but that mosque has retained our traditional look.

And it's also great that the Old Town seems completely rennovated. I can only imagine how Sarajevo would look like if the whole old town and surrounding area were in the same condition as Mostar's.

Damn Saudis, we should seriously remove their mosques( not to be rude but it's BOSNA not fucking arabia) and replace them with traditional mosques.

The stage at Mostar, constructed to provide seating room for the tens of thousands that attended the bridge's re-opening, is still used for concerts and cultural events in the city.

Schools, cultural groups, dance troupes, and ANY visiting artists are allowed to use the facility COMPLETELY free of charge:
