Walk across the Mostar Bridge
Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina | Day 6
This rebuilt Ottoman bridge emulates a 16th century piece of gorgeous Islamic architecture, which was tragically destroyed during the Croat-Bosniak war. The rebuilt bridge opened in July 2004, and has retained its unique beauty and soaring rainbow arch. For 477 years it has also been the site of a traditional dive competition, in which local young men take the (very dangerous) plunge into the freezing waters below.
