Old Bridge (Stari Most), Mostar

Old Bridge (Stari Most) presents a reconstructed version of the 16th-century Ottoman bridge over the Neretva River, which was destroyed in the Yugoslav wars. Considered to be one of the most typical structures of the Islamic architecture in the region, the bridge is reminiscent of the centuries reign of sultans, Suleiman the Magnificent, and the strength and suffering of the Balkan people. After surviving for more than 425 years, the bridge finally fell under an attack of more than 60 shells. Today you can see it standing again, revived, amidst castles and houses.

  • Read the history about this bridge before visit the site and cross it for both directions. Take a picture from the west side (left side) of the bridge. The jump was fun to watch, too.  more »

  • An amazing day-trip from Dubrovnik. Mostar offers a pleasant break from the Dalmatian coast and a glimpse into the Balkan culture and history. The locals are very friendly and the food is one of the best you'll ever taste
  • An iconic bridge that was rebuilt to be almost identical to the original, famously destroyed during the recent conflict. The bridge joins east and west Mostar and for many, tells a story of hope and reconciliation after the battle scars still evident in much of the town. It's a challenging bridge to walk because it is steep and has raised ridges on the floor that help you not to slip. The area around the bridge is phenomenally attractive with small shops and cafes.
