Sheva's Original Mostar Walking Tour will take you on a chronological journey, beginning in the Old Town. Not only will we journey through the UNESCO-designated Old Town and cross the iconic 16th century Old Bridge, dating from the Ottoman Period, but areas which showcase the Austro-Hungarian expansion of Mostar and the Yugoslav period, including the Bulevar, the front line during the Wars of Yugoslav Succession.
Learn about Yugoslavia's history with a discussion of its violent dissolution, experiences of civilians and soldiers during wartime, and the aftermath of the wars.
Taking you off the beaten path, you will not only learn about the violent dissolution of Yugoslavia during the 1990s, but see the evidence of the wars still visible on Mostar's landscape today. Equally important is hearing how the recent past still impacts the socio-political context of today, including the personal experiences of your guide. In addition, this tour will include our favorite anecdotes and stories about Mostar and provide you with a true local perspective on food, activities, entertainment that should not be missed during your visit.
