Trip Planner: Europe / Bosnia and Herzegovina / Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina / Herzegovina-Neretva Canton / Mostar / Old Bridge (Stari Most)
Old Bridge (Stari Most) presents a reconstructed version of the 16th-century Ottoman bridge over the Neretva River, which was destroyed in the Yugoslav wars. Considered to be one of the most typical structures of the Islamic architecture in the region, the bridge is reminiscent of the centuries reign of sultans, Suleiman the Magnificent, and the strength and suffering of the Balkan people. After surviving for more than 425 years, the bridge finally fell under an attack of more than 60 shells. Today you can see it standing again, revived, amidst castles and houses.

Old Bridge (Stari Most) reviews
We were here during the yearly competition were people jumped from the bridge. Nice to see but really breathtaking because of the height. more »
It is a nice bridge and it is the center of the city, but to be honest, I find the rest of the city to be more interesting to see and for sure when you keep in mind the history etc. When we visited..... more »
An amazing day-trip from Dubrovnik. Mostar offers a pleasant break from the Dalmatian coast and a glimpse into the Balkan culture and history. The locals are very friendly and the food is one of the best you'll ever taste
An iconic bridge that was rebuilt to be almost identical to the original, famously destroyed during the recent conflict. The bridge joins east and west Mostar and for many, tells a story of hope and reconciliation after the battle scars still evident in much of the town. It's a challenging bridge to walk because it is steep and has raised ridges on the floor that help you not to slip. The area around the bridge is phenomenally attractive with small shops and cafes.
