At , look for the padlocks affixed by recent lovers to commemorate the death of a young couple that was killed on the spot during the siege of Sarajevo. Bosnian Serb Bosko Brkic and Bosniak Admira Ismic were shot by snipers while trying to cross the bridge together to escape the sieged town. The two are now buried side by side in Lion Cemetery. A stone memorial plaque in the middle of the bridge bears the names of Suada and Olga, the first people killed in Sarajevo in the beginning of war.

  • 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.

  • The importance of this bridge is essentially related to a love story that occurred in 1993 when a snipper killed a couple of boyfriends. The bridge itself is nothing special.
