  • It is a place that to front-page headlines, one can spend without lingering, and also leave a thought for what happened.

  • The Sarajevo River muddy Brown. Nothing beautiful. Many bridges across it, there is a place where the war began, there are bridge Yarovoye and Juliet. There is nothing remarkable. But take a walk when you have free time, you can.

  • Nothing special to see despite the tragic story. Would be much better with detailed information on the bridge if it happened.
