  • I wonder if I'm not a tourist stop, Mostar little places in a small town, so visit here, may be partly, a little bit of a break, and I was. Safranbolu houses and the like.

  • The Turkish house is a must see attraction when visiting Mostar. It has been kept in its original condition and shows exactly how the Muslim population used to live. A guided tour is a must. 
  • It's a visit that only compensates with guide, because if the person makes a visit alone just to see what there is, since there's nothing. Is a Turkish House time of occupation in Bosnia where the utensils and the way of life of the time. It becomes interesting to know the culture of a people.

  • Kajtaz house is in the street of the same name and it is probably built at the end of 16th or at the beginning of the 17th century. Its original form has been preserved. The house belongs to town dwelling architecture, and it is the most beautiful living complex built in Turkish times, with separate houses for men and women. High walls protect it from strong sunshine and from people from the outside looking in. Valuable carpets can be seen on the floors of large rooms, and numerous books in Arabic have been preserved. It is made of stone and wood.
