Mostar, the Old Bidge over the Neretva river, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Old Bridge (Stari Most) reflected in Neretva River, Bosnia and Hercegovina, at dusk, long exposure. The bridge is a famous tourist destination and was destroyed in the Bosnian War in 1993 but rebuilt ten years later.
Mostar was named after the bridge keepers (mostari) who in the medieval times guarded the Stari Most (Old Bridge) over the Neretva. The Old Bridge, built by the Ottomans in the 16th century, is one of Bosnia and Herzegovina's most recognizable landmarks, and is considered one of the most exemplary pieces of Islamic architecture in the Balkans.
In 2005 the Old Bridge Area of the Old City of Mostar was added to the Unesco world heritage list.
