Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina: Bridge Attraction!

One and the only reason to detour my Balkan trip to Mostar is to visit one of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s most recognisable landmarks, Stari Most or The Old Bridge. Built in 1566, The Old Bridge is considered as one of the most significant examples of the Islamic Architecture. Historic centre of the city was heavily bombed by the Croatian in 1993 during Croat–Bosniak War. The Old Bridge, without any exception, was severely damaged during this chaotic period. The rebuilding of the bridge was completed in 2004, almost 11 years after the destruction. For now, during summer days, the 21-meter height of the bridge is used as the spot for the locals to jump off to the bridge on the Neretva River as a tourist attraction. But, be aware of the winter season, as Mostar will be in complete hibernation most of the time.
