I’d already noticed that Montenegro was cheaper than Croatia; Bosnia and Herzegovina turned out to be even better value. It meant that I had a lovely time in Mostar because I really didn’t have to think about what I was spending.
Guesthouse Centro (2 nights): 52 BAM (€26) – single room with shared bathroom
Average = €13/night
Food and drink
Total: 109 BAM (€54.50) – two dinners, one very extravagant lunch and lots of ice cream and Bosnian coffee
Bus from Dubrovnik: €15.50
Luggage fees: €1
Entrance fees and activities: 6 BAM (€3) – Koski Mehmet Pasha Mosque; wonderful view of the Stari Most from the garden.
Toilet fees: 1 BAM (€0.50)
What I spent
Average = €50.25/day
So Mostar was much cheaper than Dubrovnik and it could have been cheaper still if I hadn’t been trying to spend all my BAM before I left.
