Beautiful monument, didn't manage to visit inside or up the tower as we didn't have time, but from the outside, it's well kept and clean.

This tower is the enormous bell tower of the adjacent Francisian Church. The design is modernist, 105 metre high square tubular form, topped with a pyramidal roof and surmounted with a cross. The structure seems to have been constructed in conformance with the communist love of concrete and practicality. The height is impressive, but not much love seems to have been put into the aesthetics.

Standing 107 meters tall, the bell tower is made of reinforced concrete. It was constructed in 2000. This bell tower is visible from anywhere in the city.

Saturday 11th June we were on a day tour to Mostar from Dubrovnik.

Having arrived in Mostar our bus parked up in the car park beside the Church of St. Peter and Paul which the Tower stands alongside.

Our Guide informed us that the Tower is built on the site of the original one, built in 1866, which was burned down during the war in 1992. He added that this Tower is taller than the original one and the tower of the nearby Mosque. It is now known as the tallest building in the City.

Additionally we were informed that during the war in rhe 1990's the Church and the Tower was the front line separating Muslims and Christians, who at one time lived side by side each other.

There was a sign on the wall which explained the dimensions and works of the tower.
Including the cross at the Tower, it stands 107.2 metres (over 351 feet) tall.

In total there are 370 steps up to the 360 degree panoramic viewing platform, 75 metres (246 feet) high. The Tower's seven bells are also located here. Five of the bells date back to 1927 with another two added in 2015.

For those not so energetic visitors, there is a lift up to a height of 45 metres (147 feet) high, leaving only 148 steps to be climbed

There was a sign on the door that informed visitors, who wished to enter the Tower, to call a number or go to the near Campanile restaurant. There was an entrance fee to enter the Tower, think it was about €3.

We did not climb the Tower, as we walked by the bells began to chime, we were relieved and pleased that we were not inside.

A new belfry, built in 2000. Very tall, the total height is 107m. The observation platform, however, is only 75m high. You can take the elevator a little more than half the way to the observation platform. The rest you have to climb the stairs.. The observation platform is closed with windows. The view from above is OK, but Mostar is not a very spectacular city. Access is paid, it is 3 euros.

the view from the Peace Tower is average. you cant see Stari Most from here. so I would say you dont miss much if you skip this.

the entrance fee is 3 euros, and you pay at the cafe next to it. so technically, you can visit anytime the cafe is open, despite what the sign says.

after payment, you receive a key to access the tower. the tower has elevator but you still need to.climb some stairs before reaching the top

This is the highest clock tower in the area. It was built on the sight of the old clock tower and the church of St. Peter and St. Paul from 1866 which was burned down in 1992. An elevator takes you more than halfway up to the 75m-high viewing area, saving 222 of the 370 steps. The massive yet still unfinished Franciscan church below is a replacement for an 1866 basilica that was badly damaged during the war.

We originally thought the clock tower close to the Partisan cemetery was the peace tower, but when we got to the top of the actual Peace Tower we saw how wrong we were. The Peace Tower towered above the other clock tower.

Be careful when climbing this structure. There are multiple bells inside and they ring every 15 minutes. This is extremely loud when you are inside. As you walk up, it's like going through a museum as there are several information signs about the city and its history.

This tower is part of the church, in the Croatian part of Mostar, visible from afar. It is a bit outside the historical centre, but with easy access - with about 5 - 10 minutes by foot from the bridge. Many parking places next to the church and between nearby residential buildings, but it can be a problem with them during church ceremonies.

We were during the weekend and because of that, we bought the tickets in the nearby restaurant (there is information about this on the doors). After everything, you can go to this coffee shop, but it is a bit smoky there. We had to pay in cash (EURO or KM) but don't worry, there is ATM next to the tower.

There is an elevator to the second floor (saving 200 steps), but you still need to go up the stairs about 150 steps. What about the views? Unfortunately, we are disappointed. The windows are dirty.

The Mostar Peace Bell Tower was built adjacent to the Franciscan monastery as a symbol of peace. The tower of the Franciscan church in Mostar welcomes citizens of Mostar and their guests and travelers to climb to the lookout point at a height of 75 meters, with a beautiful view of the city at the foot of Velez.

The initiator of this idea is Fr. Iko Skoko, guardian of the monastery of St. Petar and Pavao in Mostar. Fr. Skoko also planned a soup kitchen, dormitories and school to help those in need in Mostar.
