The former hotel, also called Tito's Palace cannot be visited from the inside. The ruins are a famous landmark in Mostar as a symbol of the war in the 1990's.

The ruins of the Neretva hotel give an insight into the ferocity of the fighting that went on here during the break up of the former Yugoslavia. The Nevetva was once the fineset hotel in Mostar and you can still see traces of its Austro-Hungarian design. Take a look and reflect on the past.

This building, like many others in Mostar, is a reminder of the destruction that was wrought during the civil wars of 1992-95. Although poignant it is worth walking past to see how far the city has come.

Mostar has two faces. Nice one is around the old bridge second one in several corners of the city. During the war in Bosnia soldiers burned down, bombarded and destroyed many old buildings. Open window are witnesses of many victims and remainders of nice life before the war. They built or rebuilt many mosques and churches after the war. But... More

While this isn't really an attraction to visit, it is a great place to walk by and view it as a remembrance of the war in Mostar. My husband, daughter and I found this and other reminders around the city quite moving. Recommend the effort to walk by and see it.

Not really a tourist attraction per se as it just stands there and you can not really visit, but nevertheless a good reminder of Mostar (and the Balkans) troubled past. Its weird to think that it was just 20 years ago (-ish) that war tormented this beautiful country.

While not really a tourist attraction in the classic sense of the word, it has come to be a draw for those visiting Mostar. While there are many sites that remind you that the town is not that far removed from a war, this is one of the most jarring. If your interested in the recent history of the region... More

A very sad rememberance of the toll war can take. As someone born in Northern Ireland I had seen the damage WW2 had done to Belfast and later some of the the damage done by the IRA insurgency and teh destruction caused by "both sides" then. Living amonst such ruins that you see every day is very difficult and it... More

This buliding sits very close to the city center, we saw it while simply wandering around. It's a sad reminder of the past, it's contrasts with nearby 5 star hotel.

If you are looking for place which will leave strong mark on your mind this could be a good choice. Rest of war. Once beautiful hotel, but now ruin. Sad but true.
