Old Bridge, Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina

Stari Most (Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian: Stari most, Serbian Cyrillic: Стари мост; lit. ’Old Bridge’), also known as Mostar Bridge (Turkish: Mostar Köprüsü), is a rebuilt 16th-century Ottoman bridge in the city of Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina that crosses the river Neretva and connects the two parts of the city. The Old Bridge stood for 427 years, until it was destroyed on 9 November 1993 by Croatian Defence Council during the Croat–Bosniak War. Subsequently, a project was set in motion to reconstruct it; the rebuilt bridge opened on 23 July 2004.

The bridge is considered an exemplary piece of Balkan Islamic architecture and was commissioned by Suleiman the Magnificent in 1557. It was designed by Mimar Hayruddin, a student and apprentice of architect Mimar Sinan who built many of the Sultan’s key buildings in Istanbul and around the empire.Source: Wikipedia

    Such a beautiful picture and I am glad they rebuilt the bridge. It is tragic how many beautiful structures are ruined during wars.

    That is so beautiful. So sad that the bridge was destroyed during the war, but I’m glad it was rebuilt to look just as it did before. Have a wonderful Wednesday, Sandee! 🙂

    It looks so peaceful there, to live a simple life in a quiet neighborhood. It’s just sad that the bridge was ruined, yet a blessing that it is being restored. Thanks for hosting, Sandee! Enjoy the rest of the week!
