The famous bridge in Mostar, Bosnia spanning the river Neretva.
The bridge was built in the 16th century and was the widest man made arch at this time. However it was mostly destroyed by shelling in 1993 during the Croat-Bosnian war. It was deliberately destroyed, probably for its cultural value.
From 2001 rebuilding commenced. As far as possible, the engineers used the same techniques and materials and it was reopened in 2004.
Mostar is actually named after the bridge, in particular the guards of the bridge. Most = Bridge, Stari = Old.
