I think the most beutiful city off all the ones listed. Google it and fall in love

The best city in region to live,around 100000 citizens,mediterian climate,only political situation is what stopping this town to go further

By the way, mostar is in the country named bosnia and herzegovina, not just bosnia, and finally mostar is really in herzegovina - different mentality, nature, climate and even speaking than in bosnia. and, of course, mostar is much much much more beautiful than sarajevo - stinky dirty criminal city fulled with wild dogs attaking everyone. banja luka and tuzla are more beutiful than sarajevo, too. near mostar you have blagaj, pocitelj, kravice, hutovo blato, it's near to go to the monutine and to the see, too - less than a hour of driving. mostar has beutiful sky (reallyu, the bluest you've ever seen) beautiful architecture, very pleasant climate, it's heaven on earth.
