A new route dedicated to the women of this city is being prepared in Bosnian Mostar. The tour entitled "Trails of the Invisible Women of Mostar" will take you to places marked by the life and work of prominent representatives of the local community.

According to Ifet Chesir Shkoro, executive director of the Mostar Civic Initiative, all the places associated with the women mentioned in this route will be mapped on Google. Now the initiative group is preparing the album "The Ways of the Invisible Women of Mostar" for release. This name of the campaign is due to the fact that the contribution of the residents of Mostar to the development and prosperity of the city has not been sufficiently studied and evaluated.

Mostar is rich in cultural heritage, part of which is inextricably linked to generations of women who created their works here. Many representatives of the feminist movement of Bosnia and Herzegovina lived, studied and worked in Mostar, conducting vigorous social activities. And today, descendants want to perpetuate their names not only with commemorative signs and tourist routes. The city administration is preparing changes to the toponymy of Mostar, because now only two of the 65 streets of the city have female names.

Director of the Mostar Tourism Department, Professor Elvira Chemalovich Dilberovich believes that the Mostar Trails of Invisible Women initiative is able to improve and diversify the tourist offer in the city. According to her, "The goal of the Mostar Tourism Board is certainly a wider choice. Here is a fantastic combination that I liked — it is a combination of science, people and sights of Mostar. The point is that we have to open up to the world the fact that there are women in society who have left a fantastic mark here. It is important for me now that this model is included in the tours offered by the guides here."
