When visiting Mostar, its splendid historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, certainly does not go unnoticed.
Right here is Kujundziluk, the suggestive Muslim quarter that reveals the Ottoman origins of the city.
Among its ancient alleys, palaces and mosques, do not miss a visit to the splendid Arab Bazaar, a real time of bargaining, in a succession of artisans and small shops.
A riot of colors, noises and smells to which it is difficult to remain indifferent.
At least to the eye.
A place full of life, just like its inhabitants. Particularly sparkling and lively.
At Mostar Arab market you can really find everything: from spices, oil and honey, to jewelery and trinkets.
Bargaining here is a must. Traders will try in every way to get your attention.

Mostar Arab market is located in the eastern part of the Stari Most, in the district of Kujundziluk.
The place is located a few minutes away from the Mostar Bridge and can only be reached on foot.
At the Kujundziluk bazaar you appreciate the atmosphere first and foremost: along its cobbled streets you can see how little has changed since the 16th century.
You can buy the most disparate products. Local fruit and vegetables, Bosnian coffee and utensils for its preparation. Oil, oriental spices, honey.
And, again, pashminas, bags, fabrics and handicrafts. Jewelery and bracelets, colored glass lamps, hookahs, carpets, leather products.
The Kujundziluk Bazaar is generally open every day, including Sundays, from 06:00 to 18:00.
