Mostar is a city in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the main center of the Herzegovina region. It is known worldwide by its UNESCO World Heritage Old Bridge, which was reconstructed in 2004 after its demise during the Bosnian War in the 90s. The meticulous reconstruction took about five years.
Originally, the bridge was built in 1558 by the Ottoman architect Cejvan Kethoda and was hailed as the greatest architectural achievement in the Ottoman controlled Balkans. It spans about 30 meters (~98ft.) and is a perfect semicircle. Quite possibly one of the most photogenic man-made areas in all of Bosnia and Herzegovina, with possible exception of the town of Pocitelj—photos of which I will post soon. I obviously took many more images than the ten I am sharing here—if you can do so, do pay this city a visit. It is inspiring in more ways than one.
