Old Bridge (Stari Most), Mostar

Old Bridge (Stari Most) presents a reconstructed version of the 16th-century Ottoman bridge over the Neretva River, which was destroyed in the Yugoslav wars. Considered to be one of the most typical structures of the Islamic architecture in the region, the bridge is reminiscent of the centuries reign of sultans, Suleiman the Magnificent, and the strength and suffering of the Balkan people. After surviving for more than 425 years, the bridge finally fell under an attack of more than 60 shells. Today you can see it standing again, revived, amidst castles and houses.

  • Our trip took place in March, outside the intense tourist season. This old bridge partially demolished by the last war is rebuilt to the same. Beautiful bridge built with boldness and simplicity but so moving in the context of the old town. A must see.

  • It is an amazing destination. The old city is extremely beautiful. There are many small and very nice restaurants. The bridge which is in UNESCO heritage is very beautiful and very nice pictures can be done. During the day a group of courageous young men jump off the bridge. A small amount of money is requested for the jump. During the night the lights make the old city to seem magical. Enjoy! God bless you!
  • If you can witness one of the jumps off the bridge, it is amazing! Wouldn't recommend jumping though. Great views from underneath, local cafes, and from the bridge itself. Not the best place to bring a stroller or wheelchair.
  • It is beautiful; however, I can’t see why the old bridge is so popular with tourists; it is nice but not the nicest bridge I have seen (in fact far from it). It is also very popular for weddings and it seems to be popular with cliff divers who normally jump off the bridge when someone gives them money; so a bit of a tourist trap; but I am happy I’ve seen it.
  • Great idea to visit the Old Bridge and old town. Only 2 hours from Split or Dubvronik. Incredible presence of the Ottomans. Great food, friendly people. Roads not too good, drive during the day
  • Great historical bridge in the centre of Mostar. It is fun watching the professional divers jump off the bridge. This old bridge was build by the Turkish empire and destroyed by Croatians in 1995. It was completely rebuilt and reopened in 2004. There is many good places to get a good view of the bridge.
