The Partisan Cemetery

The Partisan Memorial Cemetery is located in the western part of the town on Bijeli Brijeg and was built in 1965. It is known for the fact that it was built in honor of the Yugoslav partisans in Mostar who died in the Second World War. It was built by the architect Bogdan Bogdanović. This memorial cemetery is a symbol of the city on the Neretva and is located in the western part of Mostar. The cemetery has 810 tombstones and each of them has a symbolic meaning. The shapes of the plaques are reminiscent of a sad tree or a symbol of interrupted youth to fallen fighters. In 2006, the cemetery was declared a national monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
