Doctoral dissertation Architectural History of Mostar from 1850 until the Second World War provides an insight into organization of the institutional frames of the architectural activities in one of the key urban centers of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 19th and 20th centuries. It reconsiders these institutional frames in relation to their superior instances in different periods. Stylistic features of the architectural heritage are analyzed in the context of general tendencies in Central European cultural environment. Original sources that survived the war during 1990-ih are kept in cantonal Archives in Mostar. Besides the documents, they include material remainders of the buldings and architectural units that have been fatihfully renewed. The material is chronologicaly organized together with theoretical basis of the methodology for each chapter. These interpretational choices are put in critical relation with earlier explanations of the same corpus of monuments and associated with cultural, political and social precoditinos of each urban center in the country.
