Abandoned Building in Mostar

I have to admit that I don't know much about this abandoned building that is situated along the walking lane in Mostar. But I was informed that it belogned to the University of Mostar, and that it housed a library inside. This Friday's theme is old buildings, and I think that this qualifies as one of them. It shows the classic structures of Austro-Hungarian architecture.

  7. Love the light in which you caught the remnant of what once was a grand building!
    I spy a restored building in the background, probably had luckier stars than the abandoned one.

  13. This building looks ancient, almost like a movie set. Now you need to write a scary story to go along with it.

    1. It really has been, and it doesn't need to be. It could be restored and renovated rather quickly.

    you gave this old building life.

  22. I loved your post on the FSO page but this building tells us so much more. what we are willing to let go possibly tells us more that what we preserve of our history. Maybe it is too far gone to save but it was once a truly beautiful space.

  23. Very dramatic photos. I bet this building would be fabulous if it was restored.

  24. It really is a beautiful building! Even in its ruined state, so majestic! Wanted to tell you I googled the school building and because the architecture was so interesting, used one of the internet pictures to pin it to my Pinterest board "Architecture." I wouldn't have known about it, except for your wonderful blog!
