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
Mostar's a beautiful place. Pretty touristic, like most beautiful places when they become known. The main attraction's the "Dare devil bridge" (photo attached) although the whole town is beautiful, mainly the old town. Very nice people. Throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina you can still feel the impact of the not so distant war. Tourism is helping to raise the spirits. And Bosnia and Herzegovina is well worth a visit, specially Mostar!
There is no doubt that this is a really fascinating historical place to visit but if you can possibly visit off season it will be infinitely more pleasant. There were SO many tourists the bridge was almost invisible under a sea of people. The beautiful old streets are crammed with stall after stall of tat which again detracts from the amazing architecture and history. And beware of the pickpockets. I had my purse stolen out of my cross body bag.
Must see if you're anywhere near. The stones you walk on to cross the bridge are very polished so take your time and stepping on the raised blocks may help a bit. Very compact streets steeped in history from the relatively recent to very ancient. If you haven't tried the local 'pie' this is worth checking out spinach and cheese was a favourite for us.
Very beautiful place. Enjoy lunch at one of the cafes overlooking the very scenic bridge, then wander through the shops. We came here on a day trip from our visit to Croatia and Slovenia. We found the town to be culturally interesting, and the people to be friendly to tourists.
A truly beautiful spot. An amazing bridge. There are even some boys who will jump off it if you pay them some money. Streets are full of stalls and places to eat. Everyone is friendly and they don't pester you to buy the goods. If you hunt around you can find some rare and interesting items.
