It's a beautiful building and is a must see if you enjoy architecture, just pass by it on your way to the old city and take photos - you don't need to spend much time there.

Despite everything bad that happened in city of Mostar, formerly called gimnazija Aleksa Šantić, is still standing in all its beauty in the very heart of the city. Flamboyant, proud architectural beauty of Mostar.
