Mostar: The Gem Of Bosnia

After Sarajevo, I was bracing myself for Mostar. I knew about the beauty; but I wasn't sure how much the city was still affected by the war, especially compared to Bosnia's capital and the horrors we'd seen there. ...oh boy.

It sounds ridiculous, and for me it feels like the biggest first world problem I've ever had, but I'm getting stressed out and cannot for the life of me decide what to do - or where to go - next.
