Old Bridge - Review
Anyone, who is deeply interested in Bosnian history would definitely understand the significance of this bridge. Known as country's most iconic landmark, Stari Most has been brought to existence by great Ottoman king Suleiman The Magnificent in 15-16th century and is considered to be the finest example of Balkan Islamic Architecture. Situated on the bank of Neretva River, the bridge is now the most visited attraction among tourists. Travelers visiting the place can immerse themselves in beautiful scenic view, enjoy a cup of latte in the quaint peaceful beautiful cafes nearby or test out their inner daredevil by diving in the river. The place is a must visit for historians and travelers who wish to have a taste of Ottoman culture.

Old Bridge , Mostar Reviews
The famous Mostar bridge! Unfortunately we were not lucky enough to see anyone take the plunge. The place is full of tourists often with big crowds during the day so worth heeding others advice and seeing this place at night. Lots of little shops and lovely cafes and restaurants scattered around the bridge so you can easily spend a couple of hours. Who knows, by then you may be brave enough to jump!
As with everything in Mostar, the old bridge is stunning. Unfortunately as with all places this incredible everybody wants to see it. During the day it is absolutely inundated with tour groups. It is still worth visit, but if you're not a fan of crowds be prepared. Ideally try and visit at night, when it is lit up beautifully, and the day trippers have all gone back to Dubrovnik. You can enjoy a quiet drink on one of the bars that line the valley and take in the view in peace.
The iconic Old Bridge had been destroyed by the Croatians during the 1990s war. It has been rebuilt by the Bosnians. Now it once again is the center of tourist activities of Mostar. Every day bus loads of tourists descend on Mostar and every tourist walks the cobblestone street and cross the bridge. As such the bridge is always crowded. It is also where pick pockets are active. Don't get me wrong. The bridge is beautiful and is well worth a visit. The river below has a beautiful color. The best view of the bridge is from the minaret of the big mosque. For a fee you can climb up and get an unforgettable view of the bridge and Mostar.
A beautiful place at night. Didn't go in the day due to time limitations but it's a great place to walk around and enjoy. History, culture and plenty to eat and do. My dad was here 30 years ago and according to him it's recovered a lot since then, with lots of shops and activity going on. I do recommend visiting this iconic place.
There is so much history in Mostar and around the Old Bridge. It is old and it seems untouched by passage of time and modern life. The areas around the bridge could do with a little tender love and care to make the whole package more presentable. This jewel needs to be set in a better crown.
