Metropolitan Palace (1908)

Metropolitan Palace

Built for the Bishop of the Orthodox Church, in 1908, during the Austrian-Hungarian monarchy, the Metropolitan is an interesting example of Neo-Baroque architecture. h e palace soars on a high point of the east sector of Mostar, on the left side of the Neretva River and off ers a romantic, panoramic view of the old city. The inestimable interior decorations and its unusual façade, with niches holding statues of saints, sculptures in shells and urns, render it a decidedly original monument in the local surroundings.
