    Franciscan Church and Monastery of St. Peter and St. Paul

    In 1859, Sultan Abdulmejid I published a decree giving Christians religious freedom. The monks invited Italian architect Matteo Lorenzoni to design a project for the church. Local workers built the walls using oak trunks. Construction was finished in 1875. By 1896 the Church and Monastery had arisen in Mostar.

    On the Radobolja River, near to where it joins the Neretva, close to the Old Bridge, stands the Crooked Bridge, a miniature version of The Old Bridge -Stari Most. Built in 1558, eight years prior to the more famous Old Bridge, it is believed to have been built as a trial attempt for the following, more daring, construction.

We really enjoyed the tour, our guide Mizra was knowledgeable and informative, he showed us around the old city, and also some other corners of Mostar. He thoroughly answered all the questions our group had, and also made some jokes and puns that cracked me up. Thanks for the great experience!
