The city of Mostar is located in a neighboring country, Bosna and Herzegovina, and is world known for its beautiful Old Bridge built in the sixteenth century by the Ottomans, above the Neretva river.The bridge, as well as the historical center, are located in the old town and during the summer it’s possible to watch a few brave local members of the Mostar Diving Club dive off the bridge – that is 21m high! – into the river.


Although the constructions had always attracted thousands of visitors, the Old Bridge was reinforced as a symbol of the city mainly after its destruction in 1993 during the Bosnian War. The iconic bridge was rebuilt in 2004 and the reconstruction and reopening of the location is considered by the inhabitants of the city as a sign of hope for the future.
