... leading to the total destruction of 95% of the town and the destruction of the Stari Most, which was first attacked by the Serbs and then finally the Croats managed to collapse it in 1993 (legend has it that it took 60 shells to finally bring it down). The Stari Most was rebuilt in 2004 and most of the old town in its immediate vicinity has been restored using European money (guilt money), but only a block back from the bridge the damage is still very much ...
After breakfast, we started out to Ston, famous for its oysters n seafood. Ston n Mali Ston (i,e., Ston n Little Ston) are connected by a "wall-of-China-like" rampart walling in both towns.

Then, you can walk freely and experience the winding cobbled paths as they bring you riverside or around a corner into a traditionally stylized structure. Also, the bridge lit-up at night makes for a pretty sight.
So, nothing spectacular and not so much fun in the daytime, but Mostar is worth a stay for the night scenery.
