  • The legendary Sniper Tower in Mostar. 2024

 1 month ago

Federacija Bosne i Hercegovine, Hercegovačko-neretvanski kanton, 


The so-called "Sniper Tower" is an abandoned high-rise building located near the centre of Mostar.
It was originally a bank building known as the Centre for Education and Culture.
But everything changed during the Bosnian war in the 1990s.
The bank sits on a steep hill and, thanks to its height and impressive view, had a long run as a sniper tower during the siege of Mostar.
It was completely abandoned after the end of the war.
At the moment the whole building is newly secured with bars against intrusion, but all that remains are bare walls liberally riddled with bullet holes.
Unfortunately, there's nothing left to see.
