Mostar

Mostar is a city in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the center of the Herzegovina-Neretva Canton of the Federation. The unofficial capital of Herzegovina, Mostar is situated on the Neretva river and is the fourth-largest city in the country. Mostar was named after its Old Bridge (Stari most) and the towers on its sides, "the bridge keepers" (natively: mostari). In 1991 the municipality of Mostar had a population of 126,066.

Founded in the late 15th century, Mostar was the chief administrative city for the Ottoman Empire in the Herzegovina region. The Austro-Hungarian Empire absorbed Mostar in 1878 and then it became part of Yugoslavia in the aftermath of World War I. Since 1881 Mostar has been the seat of the Bishopric of Mostar-Duvno. After World War II, Mostar developed a production of tobacco, bauxite, wine and aluminium products. Several dams ("Grabovica", "Salakovac", "Mostar") were built in the region to harness the hydroelectric power of the Neretva. The city was a major industrial and tourist center and prospered during the time of SFRY. Between 1992 and 1993, after Bosnia and Herzegovina declared independence from Yugoslavia, the town was subject to a nine month siege. The Yugoslav People's Army (JNA) first bombed Mostar on April 3rd, 1992 and over the following week gradually established control over a large part of the town. The JNA shelling damaged or destroyed a number of civilian objects.
In 1993, the Bosnian Croats launched an attempt to take the entire city. The city was to be the big prize and the capital of Herzeg-Bosnia. The result was a bloody and bitter struggle with the Bosniaks. The Bosnian Croats launched an offensive on May 9th, and ethnically cleansed Bosniaks across the Neretva river into the eastern part of the city. Once the western side was under Croat control, they began a savage bombardment of the east side, reducing much of it to ruin and causing hundreds of civilian deaths. Many cultural and religious objects were intentionally destroyed, including numerous mosques and houses from the Ottoman era, including the Kujundžiluk. The 16th century stone bridge Stari Most that had been built by Mimar Hayruddin, by order from emperor Suleiman the Magnificent, was destroyed on November 9th by Bosnian Croat mortar fire. A cease-fire was signed on February 25th, 1994. The city remained divided between the two hostile parties. Some normalization ensued with a redistricting in 1995 and reestablishment of the ability to move between the two parts of the city in 1996.
Since the end of the wider war in 1995, great progress is being made in the reconstruction of the city of Mostar. The city was under direct monitoring from a European Union envoy, several elections were held and each nation was accommodated with regard to political control over the city. Over 15 million dollars has been spent on restoration. A monumental project to rebuild the Old Bridge to the original design, and restore surrounding structures was initiated in 1999 and mostly completed by Spring 2004.
A grand opening was held on July 23, 2004 under heavy security. In July 2005, UNESCO finally inscribed the Old Bridge and its closest vicinity on the World Heritage List.
Mostar is not far from many great destinations, as for example: Medjugorje is a village in the municipality of Citluk in east Herzegovina. During the last twenty years the place became one of the best known and mostly visited pilgrim's places of the Catholic world. (more on www.medjugorje.de). Kravice the true treasure of this area is the crystal clear river Trebi € at. Southeast from Ljubuski there is the waterfall Kravice. Kravice is sure with the width of 100 metres and 25-metre height one grö and * 946; ten and most impressive waterfalls in Herzegovina. A natural water washbasin originated at the bottom of the waterfall from the strength of the water. This is the popular local popular place for outings and bathing resort, and lately there are more and more tourists. The best season is to be come here, in any case, in the spring when the water level is the highest and the surrounding nature is brilliantly green. In the season there are some cafés near in the popular place for outings, as well as Camp sites. Pocitelj this unique settlement was put to UNESCO see list and the recently explained reconstruction, her  appearance returned to the city. Except by the extraordinary orientale architecture and a sting of the Osmanischen, bottom and Počitelj is as a guest's place of the artist's colony with the longest tradition in south east Europe interesting and known. Blagaj the water streams from the 200-metre-deep rock cave, namely in such amount, that it forms totally independently the river Buna. So it does not surprise that the Turkish sultan was impressed so of the fact that he allowed to build a Moslem cloister, the so-called Tekija there. The house was built in the 16-th century for the needs of the dervish's order and puts till this day the most mysterious place in completely Bosnia and Herzegovina.
