I introduce the scenery between coastal town Neum and the Mostar.

Upper map: It shows Bosnia and Herzegovina.

A black point is the Mostar.


Lower map: It shows the way to the Mostar from the Neum that we stayed in.

Red arrows show the two towns, and blue arrow shows the root.

The distance between the Mostar and the Neum is about 60 km.

We left at 9 A.M. on September 3, 2015, and arrived at 11 A.M.

It took much time, because we went through two checkpoints on the border.

About Mostar

1992-1995, Bosnia and Herzegovina was involved into Yugoslav Wars.

At this time, we have known the capital Sarajevo became the battlefield, and similar tragedy occurred in the Mostar, too.

Race of this nation consists of the most Muslims, subsequently a Croatian of the Christian, and a Serbian of the Greek Orthodox Church.

And this nation has a border with Croatia and Serbia.

By this, this Muslims suffered damage by ethnic cleansing by a Serbian at the time of Yugoslavia’s collapse.
