Marissa tells about bosnia

Day 9

From Dubrovnik to Mostar we took a back road threw the mountains, but we saw there s a highway in process. Roads are not comfortable, but no car jam at the border. beautiful mountain sites and swamps. Arriving in mostar center full with narrow streets and souvenir shops and restaurants to the famous bridge Stari Most. Its also famous that people jump of that bridge to cellebrate the reconstruction of the bridge and before doing the hat go s around to collect some change for the guy jumping. Made a visit to a small historic museum. It was intresting get to know more about the history and reconstuction of the old town. We also walked to the Karađoz Bey Mosque and if you enter you are able to climb the minaret to have a amazing panaramic view. We had a nice dinner really close to the bridge and river. In the night the city is beautifully lit and less busy.

Day 10

Highly recommended is Medugorje. A town near Mostar to see a beautiful church. Not knowing what to expect. Comming in a holy village, over crowded and streets full with souvenirshops selling holy souvenirs.

So after googling we understand. It became a popular site of catholic pilgrimage. Over 1 million visitors a year all around the world. So for us it was a short visit exept that Maria herself visit the village in 1981 there is nothing special about this church.

On our way to Sibenik we made two more stops in Bosnië that are worth your time. Old town Positelj lying here you can enjoy beautiful vieuw from fortress on top of the hill. Kravica waterfall really nice swimming and picnic area and not so crowded as krka waterfalls. And plus side you can take a train down or up for 8 KN.

Also crossing border to croatia is easy and not busy.

Arriving in Sibinik another beautiful historic city on the shores of the sea. Wandering the narrow streets and along the harber. And the Cathedral of St. James also on the Unesco world heritage list is amazing.
