Old Bridge (Stari Most) Reviews
Visivamente, ricostruito senza tener conto della vecchia struttura architettonico ingenieristica. Troppo regolare il taglio delle pietre...

Too regular the cutting of stones... The remains of the old bridge, left on the riverbed, are different in size from the new stone used. It seems to be a failure of the arch on the right bank. Towards the valley it seems to notice a fracture line of several blocks of the first row towards the top of the arch. Just an impression? I hope!
We walked across this lovely bridge and can only admire the Bosnian people who have recovered somewhat from their war and treat visitors so respectfully Mostar is well worth a visit and a meal! more »
Such a gorgeous place! Wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this as part of a road trip, but I have fallen in love with Mostar. You must go, the place is amazing, and right at the centre of it all is the bridge that stood for centuries, blown up in the Bosnian war & had been rebuilt beautifully. If you go during the day in peak season you will see the amazing death-defying kids jumping from the bridge once they get €25. Just go, book it! It's amazing!
The most iconic place when you are talking about Mostar is the old bridge. There are a lot of places to go in Mostar but the first and the most important is visiting the old bridge. The old bridge is considered also one of the most important landmarks and sightseeing of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Due to the fact that there are a lot of tourists around the old bridge every day, the best time of visiting it is during sunrise. There is also a very nice café where you can have a coffee or a beer while watching the sunset.
