3. MOSTAR, BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA
Mostar will take your breath away with its Ottoman-era architecture. A main attraction is the Old Bridge, destroyed in 1990’s and recently rebuilt. Thrill-seekers can jump off the bridge into the cold water; it’s allowed. Mostar was almost completely destroyed during the Bosnian War; the village was under siege for nine months. Today, it’s a charming little heaven on earth, but you can still see the bullet holes in the walls of the Red Cross building.
4. CONWY, WALES
The medieval village, whose biggest attraction is the ominous Conwy Castle, a World Heritage Site, and magnificent dockside, is surrounded by the Snowdonia Mountains and shores. Other preserved castles and historic houses are somewhat of a trademark in Conwy. It is there where you’ll find the smallest house in all of Great Britain. The house was lived in until 1900, when the owner was a 6 ft. 3 inch fisherman named Robert Jones. The rooms were too small for him to stand up in and he was eventually forced to move out.
