This 16th century bridge was destroyed in November 1993 during the Croat-Bosniak War. It was decided to build a bridge as similar as possible to the original, using the same technology and materials.
This 17th-century Dervish house stands at the karstic spring source of the Buna river. It is also called Vrelo Bune.
My bus arrives to the town of Mostar in the Herzegovina region around 8:00pm. I am met by a fellow named Bata at the bus station. Bata leads me to the Majdas Rooms guesthouse, on Franje Milicevica (road) where I pay €11.90 for a bed in a shared-room. I take an evening walk around town and enjoy the crisp, cool air. I feel like I am in a vey remoe portion of Europe.
I enjoy an excellent windy ride in old-school train through the mountains to Sarajevo in the region of Bosnia. I am met by a man at the train station about twenty minutes after I arrive. He takes me to the Haris' Hostel where I rent a bunk in a room with about 12 other beds. There are many Brits staying here, drinking, playing cards and having a good time.
Tour Sarajevo and try Chevapi
Tour to Sarajevo
I catch the mini-bus ride from Sarajevo through the Republika Srpskato and on to Belgrade, Serbia. The scenery is quite green and dotted with village housees. For some reason I become quite sentimental and listen to the Julio Iglesias album Julio which cheers me up.
