The Neretva River Bridge

Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina

Stari Most is a 16th century Ottoman Empire bridge which is located in the city of Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina. This tourist attraction is the most famous place on this list. I am putting this bridge on the list of the places known only to locals only because this landmark must be included in every tourist attraction list that is made for Bosnia. The original bridge stayed over river Neretva for more than 400 years until it was destroyed during the Croatian-Bosnian War in 1993. Later in 2004, it was fully rebuild and since that it became a symbol for the Bosnians. Stari Most is perfect for wedding proposals, personally I have friends from Bosnia who proposed to their girlfriends on the top of the bridge. This beautiful Islamic architecture deserves the attention of all the tourists that visit Bosnia & Herzegovina.
