Mostar, Bosnia & Hercegovina

12 Jul

Mostar bridge was rebuilt after the Homeland War.

When you walk into Mostar you feel like in a different world. Pebbled narrow streets wind through the stalls that sells everything, a typical middle eastern bazaar. Mostar’s name comes from the people that were guarding Stari Most, the famous bridge over Neretva, the river that crosses the city. When you enter the city you get on this bridge relatively soon. It was destroyed by the Yugoslav Army but reconstructed with an amazing determination in the exact the same style but with different materials. At the entrance to the bridge is a excellent exhibit from War Photo Limited by the photographer Goddard from New Zealand who was living in Mostar during the siege. The images are shocking.After the bridge you are delving deep into the bazaar that winds on the sides of the river. Mosques abound, together with shelled buildings reminders of the fratricide war.
