The Ottoman Experience
About the Tour:
For more than four hundred years, Bosnia-Herzegovina has been part of Ottoman Empire, once the most powerful empire in the world spreading from Middle East to Central Europe. Although this Empire is long gone, its effects are still visible in everyday life in Bosnia-Herzegovina: in culture, language, cuisine…
Ottoman Experience takes you on the tour of everyday life in Ottoman Empire,where we will witness the birth of Mostar, explore religious rituals and answer the most important questions on what was Ottoman Empire in reality. But that’s not everything. For couple of hours, you will become citizens of this vast Empire, introducing yourselves to the hardships and pleasures of living in largely forgotten times.
