Mostar is the largest and one of the most important cities in the Herzegovina region and the center of the Herzegovina-Neretva Canton of the Federation. This town was named after the mostari (bridge keepers) who in medieval times guarded the Stari Most (Old Bridge) over Neretva river. The Stari Most was built by the Ottomans in the 16th century and is one of the city’s most popular landmarks. The Old Town section of Mostar is a popular Bosnian tourist destination.
