The old bridge of Mostar (Stari Most means the old bridge) is a worthy landmark of Mostar and even the whole country. Crossing the green and deep Neretwa River, built in the 16th century, it was designed by Hayruddin, an Ottoman architect, whose teacher is Mimar Sinan, who designed many famous buildings in Constantinople and its surrounding areas. The 29-meter-long stone bridge, which stood 427 years ago, was an important link between East and West, but was destroyed by Croatian artillery shelling during the civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina on 9 November 1993. The bridge we see now was rebuilt with the help of European countries under the organization of the United Nations after the war. It basically restored its pre-war appearance. It was also included in the World Cultural Heritage and reopened in 2004. Every year at the end of July, it becomes a tradition for young people to jump onto bridges and plunge into the Neretwa River. Many good places at both ends of the bridge are occupied by restaurants and shops, but the only way to the old bridge on the east coast is still about 20 meters away, which is a good place to watch the old bridge. In addition, you can go down to the ancient theatre under the bridge, you can get in close contact with the River water, and from the bottom up, you can see the old bridge is magnificent. There are not many visitors, but the streets are narrow, so it must be busy in the busy season. There are stone towers at both ends of the bridge, and an old bridge Museum in one tower, which is charged. Visiting the old bridge itself is free of charge.
Mostar is mainly to see the old bridge, the old bridge is very tall and unique in shape, and often people do diving performances downward, charges a euro for landing, the two sides of the bridge are full of shops and houses, tourists are many, after watching the old bridge choose a small shop to eat, and then stroll in the street, it spent a very leisure day.
What remains is the traces of history, flowing with clear river water.
Mostar's old bridge is a world cultural heritage. It was destroyed in the Bosnia-Herzegovina war. Later, people fished up stones from the river and repaired them. Only then can the old bridge with a history of more than 500 years be preserved. Standing by the river and looking up at the bridge, there is more artistic conception. The river is as green as a gem. It is really the most beautiful one I have ever seen.
Walking on the Balkan Peninsula-Mostar Bridge is located on the Neretwa River in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina. Its features are in harmony with the surrounding buildings with ancient stones and the ancient streets paved with river pebbles. It is a world cultural heritage.
Mostar Bridge is the essence of this millennium old city. Although it is rebuilt, it still retains its original appearance. The bridge connects the castle with the town. The gap is very high. It feels like a building in the fairy tale world. Walking on it has a wonderful fantasy, like stepping into a fairy tale castle.
Bosnia and Herzegovina was destroyed during the war, and now the bridge has been rebuilt. It is super beautiful, but there are many people, and there are fewer tourists in Asia. Prices in ancient cities are also slightly expensive, mainly in euros. Many paintings are really good, and there are refrigerator stickers. Many museums about the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina are highly recommended. The old city has beautiful houses and can live there. A lot of people dived on the bridge.
