The Old Bridge Over Neretva
The Old Bridge, a reconstruction of the 16th-century landmark that dated from the reign of the Ottoman sultan Suleiman, is emblematic of Mostar's revival. The city is slowly overcoming the legacy of the brutal ethnic war that ended in 1995.
The Old Town has been largely restored. Its cobbled streets lead to Turkish-style houses.
