ALEKSA ŠANTIĆ. Considering how much I know the city of Mostar and my country, I could say that this poet raised Mostar to its feet in his verses and that he said the most about the city between the lines. Who knows about Mostar, knows about Aleksa Šantić. Only a song can describe him. The city of Behar, garden and fountain, grew together with Santic. He weaved all the beauty of the Neretva, the Old Bridge, difficult human destinies, unhappy loves and the beautiful Emina and with his verses took them to heaven. He was a Serbian poet and academic. He was born in Mostar in 1868.
