Mostar in a Day

We’re up early (why do I keep doing this when I’m on holiday, I’m supposed to be more lazy than normal), and we head off into the old town. I’ve been reliably informed that the view from the top of the Mehmed Pasha Mosque is spectacular and gives the best view of Mostar. Tickets are 10 marks to go up the minaret but trust me, it is worth it. Just be warned it is very narrow both on the stairs and at the top. We ended up chasing a lovely Danish couple around the viewing platform because there was no space to squeeze past.
