This is a completely unremarkable bridge that spans over the Miljacka (though it’s one of the oldest in the city), except for one startling detail: if you stood at the northern end of the bridge and could look back in time to June 29 1914, then you’d see the event that led to the break out of WWI happen under your very nose! Yep, this is where Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated. The bridge was briefly named after the assassin Gavrilo Princip.

  • Latin Bridge is a probably one of the most popular place for visit when in Sarajevo. It's famous in many ways. For example; young and all people in love knows it, like many bridges around the world as a place of love. Padlocks locked on the sides should be symbol of their eternal and unbreakable love. In addition, bridge is built in Roman stile and gives you beautiful postcard look, up and down the river. Surrounded old Austro-Hungarian buildings and romantic parkway surely doesn't look like the trigger ( local term ), for horror story that follows. Sidewalk next to bridge is the place used for assassination of prince Ferdinand with intention to stop Austro-Hungarian occupation of Bosnia. Achieving this goal brings the reason used to justify beginning of conflict so complex, turbulent and tragic, escalating so fast into a dark age, today known as a World War.

  • Nice monument to see in a Sarajevo center, but even it is recently renovated, it is purely maintained. It is filthy and lots of garbage on it and around it as well in Miljacka river. City needs to do way better to educate its citizens how to behave.

  • This is of course the bridge very close to where Franz Ferdinand was shot. It was interesting being near to such a historic place. The atmosphere in this part of Sarajevo is very nice and I love this city. If you're a photographer, this is a fairly photogenic spot and I think you'd be silly to not capture this bridge and the area in general.

  • It really is a privilege to stand in this location. Not because of the heinous act committed here, but because of the realisation of how much changed in the world because of what happened here. This is standing in the place where history shifted, where the world turned. It's a spectacular area. Beautiful buildings. A glorious sense of history. But there is a strong dark undercurrent. I'm a historian. I never indulge in "what might have been" but we do recognise what was. And why. All because of a wrong turn ...

  • Visited in the summer of 2016. Beautiful bridge with a lot of history atatched to it.
