Mostarian Night from 1688

Travel back in time to see how life in Mostar looked like back in 17th century, on this amazing journey.

A remarkable journey through time!

This is not an ordinary tour you might take. This is a window in time, a lesson in tradition. From it you will find out how people lived in Mostar in the olden times. It is formed as a community theater by a group of young local people, to preserve the cultural heritage of our town and save it from oblivion.

Your hosts are going to welcome you in a truly Ottoman-Bosnian atmosphere so you can feel it in the air. It is basically a private performance, with the whole ensemble doing interactive show full of tiny authentic details from the 16th century for you. You will also enjoy a live performance of traditional dances, sevdah as the traditional Bosnian music. There is also one thing that makes the whole show complete, giving it authenticity and intimacy. The show is taking place in Kajtaz House, the oldest house in the whole of Mostar! The house was built in 1520, and it is UNESCO-protected monument.

That is not all…

If you thought this is where it ends, you were wrong. After the show, everyone will gather at dinner, where you can try traditional Herzegovinian dishes. They are prepared in the households of your hosts. These are not ordinary dishes that are usually served in restaurants. These are authentic, almost forgotten dishes, each made with great love by your hosts’ mothers. You can sweeten your dinner with some homemade dessert and juice afterward. At the dinner, guests are free to talk to the family and to ask them anything about the house or about the time the house was built at. Also, you are free to try and take photos wearing national clothes. You are free to learn a few dancing steps as well, or simply to wander the house on your own.

Try to imagine if you can, a tiny little bottle of time in which the most fragrant drops of customs and traditions are preserved. In that bottle, besides your memories, are hidden the emotions that only a  reminiscent soul remembers, and get are triggered by smells, sounds or tastes. In that little bottle, you can see everything that is in your heart. That little bottle is a spring of inspiration for something we like to call ‘Mostarian night from 1688‘.

    Because of the pandemic, we were only able to visit one winery, but it was a wonderful experience! Our driver, Jasmin, was great! The agency went above and beyond to offer replacement experiences for us because of the COVID closures. We highly recommend!! It was a great experience!
