We saw that the church was closed, but we were interested more in the Peace Bell-tower. We wanted to see the view. On the entrance we saw the table, that it was open every day. Then next one, you could have more information in the caffé next to it. We got the info there, it was closed for today, without... More

A rebuild of the old Catholic church which the Ottomans had helped to build in 1866, destroyed in the recent war but now built in a modern style, in contrast to the nearby old city. The high bell-tower is a guiding landmark. It's fairly stark but arresting inside; look up at the stained glass windows. Has 'photos of the many... More

This was completely re-built after the Balkan wars and is all concrete. The tower is 107 metres tall and dominates the town, easy to use as a land mark for the car park. It did not feel like a church.

Take the lift! The views from the top of the campanile are breathtaking and a great way to get orientated in Mostar. There is a gift shop at the top selling everything from souvenirs to history books. I picked up a brilliant one on the history of the Franciscans in Mostar.

Many in Mostar will say to you that the tower of the church was built intentionally so high so as to ruin the overall balance (and average height) of buildings in Mostar. The tower really looks disproportionate when compared to other parts of the city (especially it's center), which doesn't give that good overall impression. But, that's the impression of... More

The church is over 100m height but is not yet ready as there is still o lot of work to be done inside.

If I’m not mistaken, most tour buses will stop at the parking space next to this church, so I’m guessing this will be the starting point for most visitors to Mostar. It also helps that the imposing spire of the church easily dominates the Mostar skyline, making it a good place marker to remember. To get to Mostar Old Town,... More

Saint Peter and Paul Monastery is a new church located in Mostar, outside the old town. It has the biggest bell tower in the city and it was built in the 90s, after the Balcan War. Pitifully after the war the three religions (catholic, orthodox and muslims) begin to compete to built the biggest religion building, instead of helping each... More

Unfinished catholic church with a oversized tower which is in disproportion with the rest of the building. It was built like that just to show religious domination. There is nothing especially to see inside too, it has very simple interior.
