Partisian Memorial Cemetery in Mostar

Partisian Memorial Cemetery in Mostar

Partisan Memorial Cemetery in Mostar is a national monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina built in 1965 by the Serbian architect Bogdan Bogdanović and at the initiative of Džemal Bijedić, in the honor of all who were killed in the National Liberation Front. It was opened by the Yugoslav statesman Josip Broz Tito.

It is located in the western part of Mostar, surrounded by green surfaces at 5,000 square meters and six irregular terraces. There are 810 tombstones altogether, which are made of stone slabs that were taken from the old and devastated stone buildings in this city. The shapes of the tombstones remind us of the cut trees, as the symbol of the youth that suddenly stopped. The Partisan Memorial Cemetery is one of the most famous symbols of Mostar, and one of the most beautiful architectural, aesthetic and landscape monuments is Bosnia and Herzegovina.
