Džemal Bijedić Memorial House


Part of the four-headed Museum of Hercegovina, this small archaeological and ethnographic museum occupies the former house of Džemal Bijedić, a former prime minister of Yugoslavia who died in mysterious circumstances in 1977. The highlight is a collection of old photos of Mostar.
