Aug 26, 2014 Dubrovnik • Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina • Split


Today,We rode  north to Split in the Croatian province of Dalmatia, stopping en route across the border in Bosnia & Herzegovina to explore
the city of Mostar on an included tour.

Mostar is internationally known for its Old Town and bridge, now a symbol of reconciliation, cooperation, and the co-existence of diverse
cultural, religious, and ethnic communities.

We made a short photo stop in the picturesque village of Pocitelj, a charming reminder of Herzegovina’s oriental past.
Then continued to Mostar, the economical, political, and cultural center of Herzegovina. The central part of the Old Town,
with its forts, towers, and gates, was built by great Turkish builders in the 16th century.
Damaged in the last war and restored in 2004 under UNESCO protection, it is a masterpiece of Turkish architecture.
We also visited one of Mostar’s mosques and a house from Turkish times, learning about past and present life in a city
whose turbulent history has made a unique mixture of people and cultures.

又見背包客,
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
看這座有名的石橋,
我們到此地時先看了介紹的影片,特別提到這座石橋,在戰時被炸燬,傷透了當地老百姓的心。
他們戰後重建,完全照原來的用石頭鑲嵌重造,不用水泥。
曾有盛大的慶祝在石橋落成的時候。
 
 
 
 
這個小橋是這個小城精神象徵的代表,來參觀的人擠得水洩不通,
