Christmas Market in Mostar 2016

Mostar has been usually very quiet in the winter season. Gone are the masses of tourists, cold winds and short days take people back home. This winter there has been some change. The city has commissioned a Christmas Market, something the city has been lacking in the previous years. My sister Jasmina and I visited it last year. While it's not so grand and pompous like the Christmas Markets in the rest of Europe it does bring people together. The market features a ice skating range, food, music, shops, drinks, horses, a big blue Christmas tree, and a little Coca Cola truck. I want to show you some images of it I made, so I hope you will enjoy them.










Thank you all for visiting. Do your towns have Christmas Markets? What do they look like?

  3. this is truly fascinating, and I love the photo of the truck. my favorite you might think is an odd choice, but I love number 8, the view inside with the tree through the window. speaks to me of holiday season

  7. Super good picture of your sister, Mersad. Looks like it was chilly. As always, your night shots are really fine.

  8. Danke dir vielmals dass du uns mitgenommen hast. Gerade für mich wundervoll anzuschauen, denn solche Märkte liebend gibt es sie hier nicht wirklich. Es gibt zwar immer "Versuche" und sogeannte WEihnachtsmärkte, aber für mich sind es dann immer normale Märkte die alles anbieten. Den richtigen "Dreh " haben sie da noch nicht raus. Habe es in Deutschland immer geliebt sie zu besuchen.

    Liebe Grüsse

  11. An indoor Christmas market? That is unusual. I took a cruise from Amsterdam to Basel in early December one year to see Christmas markets and fell in love with them. What I liked best was that they are primarily for the local people, not tourists, though travelers can blend in. My two houses have displays from many of the things bought on that trip.
