Visit hill Hum for the best panoramic view of Mostar valley.
Hum Hill is a local hill that rises above Mostar, and is known for the cross that rises at the very top, but also for the best panoramic view of the city of Mostar. We bring you a walking trip to the top of the hill with a new hiking trail that starts from Panjevina, and after you reach the top of the hill you will be amazed by the panoramic view of the city. But our journey does not stop there, we go for a walk along the circular path along the hill to tour the local bunkers that exude history and on which the remnants of the war are still visible.
Hum is a hill located above Mostar at 436 meters above sea level. It is surrounded by Čekrk, Donja Mahala, Panjevina, Zahum, Donji and Gornji Vukodol and Privorac. Hum has always been of strategic importance. In the action of occupying Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1878, Austro-Hungary occupied Mostar without any struggle. First she took Hum and then Mostar. Along the access road there are still bunkers from World War II.
The Millennium Cross is a Roman Catholic cross on the hill of Hum erected as a symbol of the jubilee of two thousand years of Christianity, whence its name. It was also erected as a symbol of the suffering and misery that this city has gone through in history. It is 33 meters high and is the largest cross in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is visible from every part of Mostar. This height is intended because Jesus Christ was so old at the time of the crucifixion. It is a place of pilgrimage on Good Friday by the Way of the Cross to Hum.
