"Mostar"

1993 by James R. Huntsberger.   All rights reserved.

The old bridge at Mostar, Bosnia was built during the reign of Suleiman the magnificent 500 years ago. For centuries, the Christian Croatian Bosnians lived on the Left Bank and the Moslem Bosnians lived on the Right Bank of the Neretva River. They were allies against the Serbs early in the latest war. After the Serbs moved north to lay siege to Sarajevo, the Croatians' centuries old hatred of the Muslims boiled over and they started shelling across the river. In the process, this ancient bridge was completely destroyed on November 9, 1993. In Serbo-Croatian, Mostar means "old bridge".  After the war, the old stones were recovered from the river to rebuild the bridge, which reopened on July 23, 2004.
