For the first time Mostar was mentioned in written documents in 1452. Among all explanations of Mostar-s name origin these two are the most interesting: Mostar was named after bridge keepers (mostari) or after two towers which were called ''mostare''. The Sloping Bridge – One of the oldest preserved monuments of Turkish rule period is The Sloping Bridge. It was built before 1558 and according to some narrations this small bridge was a prototype for the building of the Old Bridge.
The Old Bridge – It was constructed in 1566 by Hajrudin, architect on the Sultan Solaiman’s court. Arch of the bridge has a span of 28,70 m, it’s altitude is 21 m from the heights of the summer water level.
Koski Mehmed Pasha Mosque
Some 100 m northerly from the Old Bridge is Koski Mehmed - Pasha Mosque. It was built in 1617.
Old Orthodox Church was built in 1834, with permission of great Kara Mahmud Pasha in Mostar. In 1873 the biggest and most beautiful Orthodox Church in BiH was built.
Short after their settlement in Brankovac quarter, Mostar Jews have built synagogue. In 1952 g. synagogue was given to Puppet Theatre in Mostar.
Franciscan’s Church was built in 1866. Near by the church is Franciscan’s library and archive with 536 scripts (374 are written in oriental languages).
The Old Bazaar is placed beside the left river bank, northerly from the Old Bridge. It was named after ‘’kujundžije’’- craftsmen who struck the gold and whose workshops were numerous in this area in Turkish period. .
