It was fascinating to learn that the Ottomans had assisted in the construction of this church in 1866. It was destroyed in 1992 during the Balkan wars and a larger building was constructed in 2000 as replacement. When we visited in April, work was ongoing...More

The bell tower is huge but the architecture is pretty uninspiring - feels as if they have focussed on size over style. We wouldn’t have made a special trip to see it but our tour rendezvous point was there.

This was the drop off and pick-up point for our tour, the complex is massive, of particular note is the huge tower, a bit too modern for our liking, however, it demand attention.

There is free parking area. Very good place to leave a car and go to Old Town. How do you find this place? It is simple - must find biggest church tower.

As a lover of brutalism architecture I really enjoyed the visit of the interior of the church. Might not be up to everyone's taste but worth the chance.

Nothing much to see except the outside as the place is being renovated. Nothing inside. The outside is attractive.

My wife and I were here on a tour from US mid-May. This tall landmark is easy to see; our bus parked right nearby. To me, the church is ok, but nothing that you would say "Must See". It is very close to the Old...More

Tallest landmark in mostar, easy to see and to use as a reference point to get to the bus area. From here is about 15 mins walk to get to the bridge.
