Bosnia is a country blessed with cities that ooze history and stunning natural landscapes such as the Kravice Falls. Perhaps the jewel of Bosnia’s landmarks however is Mostar, specifically Stari Most (translated to Old Bridge).
The 5 best photo spots for Stari Most:
1) The rocks below Stari Most
If you are a male reading this that is lucky enough to have a female companion, I'm sure you know the struggles of finding the best place to take their photo. The background has to be perfect, the lighting has to be good and if there's a hair out of place you know that you'll be retaking the picture again! Bringing your female friend to this spot will have the perfect location sorted - you'll still need to ensure their hair is looking immaculate though! This rock can be found directly below Stari Most and can get quite crowded in the afternoon. Come early morning to get the best light and beat the crowds!
2) Behind the mini waterfall that is next to the platform.
In front of the rock is a platform that is really nice to sit down and unwind on. We noticed a small waterfall next to it which you can stand behind to take a picture. Be careful is gets slippy! On a sunny day this is easily one of the best photo spots for Stari Most, with the golden bridge shining over Mostar's turquoise waters.
3) From the Old Town
When snapping away at the quaint Old Town streets, don't forget to take some pictures of Stari Most! We were sitting down eating delicious €0.50 ice cream from one of the many Old Town cafes, with this great view in the background.
4) From the bridge opposite Stari Most
Head out of the Old Town towards the bridge opposite Stari Most, don't forget to purchase some delicious and cheap burek from the bakeries on the way! From here you can see the Neretva River, Mostar's Old Town and the stunning mountainous backdrop all in one go!
5) On top of Stari Most itself!
Unsurprisingly the views from Stari Most are equally as beautiful! Just try to come up here early so you don't have to jostle with the crowd.
There you have it, the 5 best photo spots for Stari Most. We hope to see your pictures of Mostar on instagram soon!
