The original bridge was built across the mighty Neretva River in 1566 by Ottoman design and Dalmatian masonry.


It stood as a symbol of Bosnia and Herzegovina for over 400 years before it was destroyed in the war of the early 1990's. The Stari Most not only bridged two sides of the river, but bridged the many cultures and customs that have settled in Herzegovina over the past millennium. The town of Mostar received its name from the bridge keepers on either side, called Mostari in Ottoman times. The reconstruction of the bridge in 2005 in its original form is perhaps the most powerful manifestation of a country that looks positively towards the future.
