Shopping and Eating in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Mostar is one of the largest cities in the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Shopping in Mostar

Mostar defined by AbbreviationFinder is tempted by narrow streets with small shops, and it’s like being set back in time. Crafts made from ancient traditions in the form of rugs, jewelery and paintings are exciting memories to take home. It’s easy to see why people have come across the Neretva River for hundreds of years to shop.

On the west side of the river are several restaurants along the riverbank with great views of the old bridge. The area is called Kujundziluk, after the many brass smiths (kujundzije) who lived here, together with artists, tanners, tailors and other craftsmen. The stores in the stone houses are still dominated by these professions, and here you can do a bargain on the jewelry front.

On the eastern side of the bridge lies a network of several idyllic stone-paved streets that swirl between natural stone houses with restaurants, small shops and cafes, over rivers and under bridges.

If you prefer to shop at the mall you can also do this.
