On the west end of the bridge there is the building which used to be the toll house, where the bridge watchers would live. Actually, it's very possible that the name of the city derives from the "mostari", the bridge watchers.
Nowadays the building is an exhibit space, with an exhibit about the Civil War of Yoguslavia in Mostar in display.
The place it's specially beautiful at night, with the careful lights system placed around the structure.
