Mostar beer-tasting/ afternoon tour

Beer is the world’s most popular alcoholic beverage, and even though Herzegovina is best-known for its wines, it is very popular with the local population here as well.

Austro-Hungarian Mostar

History and Culture of Austro-Hungarian Mostar

When the Austro-Hungarian Empire, also Known as the Habsburg Monarchy, took control of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1878, Mostar was a small provincial town stuck in the past. While the Ottomans left a hugely important part of Mostar behind them, including Mostar’s famous Old Bridge – the most recognizable symbol the town has, the era of Austro-Hungarian rule brought great progress. In just 40 years, the new government completely modernized Mostar’s infrastructure, building roads, lighting, sewers, schools, hospitals and much more. In this tour we get to learn and explore this often overlooked, but crucial part of history of Mostar. Some of the sights in the tour include the Mostar Rondo, first elementary and highschool (today’s Gymnasium and City Hall) and the Musala square.
