Old Bridge (Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina)


Little Bosnia and Herzegovina experienced a terribly destructive war in the 1990s. Mostar, one of the country's most historic cities, served as a major battleground and suffered tremendous damages as a result. Its historic old bridge (pictured here) was shelled repeatedly until it collapsed. For over 400 years, it stood as a symbol of the city, representing the bridging of east and west. After the war, the bridge was rebuilt with the same materials and methods it was constructed with 400 years ago. It stands today as a symbol of peace and a hope for the future of the country and its people.
