Travel photo of the week #10 Mostar

mostarThis is the Old Bridge(Stari Most) of Mostar, a city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This city was the most heavily bombed of any Bosnian city during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina following the breakup of then-Yugoslavia. Mostar has been most famous for this beautiful historic Ottoman-style bridge, which spans the Neretva river in what is considered the historic center of the city. This was bombed too! Only to be reconstructed in 2004. 

It is surprising to see that this formerly war-torn city is once again a lively and beautiful destination, emphasizing the fact that people from Mostar always find ways to live together in peace!
