Old Bridge

Mostar

When the Stari most, or Old Bridge, collapsed from tank shelling

in 1993 it was like the heart was ripped outof most Mostar natives.

Even mentioning the bridge for years after it fell to the bottom of

the Neretva River could invoke tears as it symbolized both the city

and the country as a whole. Now, more than a decade later, the beautiful

stone structure that had spanned the Neretva River for over four centuries

once again arches across its raging waters. The bridge is Mostar's core

and its reconstruction means that life is slowly but surely returning to

normal in what is most certainly the most beautiful city in BiH.
