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
Must see if you're anywhere near. The stones tou 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.
It's as touristy as it gets but the bridge was just magnificent and so beautiful at night with the lighting. This is the main attraction to get people to come visit Mostar. Note the divers only take action after soliciting at least 25 Euros before one of the younger divers takes the plunge. The old coots in speedos were just the pitchmen, and in no way shape or form to do any kinds of diving.
Beautiful and serene place. The water is clear with a greenish tint. The thing I love about this is that it's not crowded at all so it's a great place to take many photos. I went there in April and the weather was just nice - not too cold with just a little bit of wind. People are also very friendly and nice.
The view was spectacular both from below and above. We got to see a diver jump off the bridge as well which was kinda cool. They do collect money before they jump. We went at the end of April but already it was almost impossible to move on the streets near the bridge. The restaurants looked amazing and almost all had a magnificent view. The only great downside was the trash. There was garbage everywhere on the river bank and near the bridge. Either add more bins or clean them regularly. If you don't look down its quite an experience :D
Amazing view that you can appreciate more on its history. Just be mindful when you walk around especially when crossing the bridge. It can be slippery. In the ancient time, the bridge was used for horses rather than designing for human to cross. That is why the stopper to avoid slippery is big as it fit horses feet.
