Old Bazar Kujundziluk, Mostar

Old Bazar Kujundziluk, Mostar (must see)

The Old Bazar Kudjundziluk has been in business since the 16th century. It lies in the oldest part of Mostar, along a winding cobbled street. The Market dates back to the Ottoman era when it was a beating heart of commerce in Mostar. With more than 500 workshops and businesses, the street has maintained its ancient looks.

The Old Market is in a car-free area of Muslim Mostar. Turkish shops prevail. Artisans sell their traditional wares and handicrafts from one-room shops on the sides of the street. Visitors can find copperware items, carpets, clothes, scarves, jewelry, smoking paraphernalia, and hookahs. There are quite a few crowded restaurants along the way.

The Old Market starts on the right bank of the Neretva, close to the Old Bridge, and continues up the cobbled left bank. There is a wide range of souvenirs, including military items, books, photos, helmets, and cartridge casings. There is a lot of touristy stuff among the boxes, leather, and textiles. Prices can be haggled.
