Balkans 2016 – Day 46 : Mostar, Bosnia

It was such a beautiful day that I decided to stay one more day to enjoy Mostar. After a nice breakfast provided by the host, I went to the bus station looking for the bus to a village called Blagaj around 15KM from Mostar.  After checking with the bus counter  I was pointed to the right bus stop to wait. The next bus was 1130 and it was only 10 so I decided to walk to the old town to have a look. It was a nice walk and the old town was very pretty especially the famous bridges. 

I did not manage to finish seeing the sights because I had to go back to the bus station to catch the bus. I plan to return later in the day to continue with the tour of the old town Mostar. 

Bus fare was around 1 Euro one way. Blagaj is a famous placed where the Tekija Blagaj Devrish house is situation at the source of the river Buna build end 15th Century. It’s a very scenic and beautiful place. I took many pictures there. 

After waiting for a long time for the return bus to Mostar, I was finally back in Old town Mostar. I continued to soak in the sites of Mostar and had a nice local lunch. I took many pictures before returning back to the hostel to rest. 

Tomorrow I will head to Konjic which is halfway between Mostar and Sarajevo. Rain is forecasted for tomorrow. I hope it will be kind to me.
