Photographer's Note

This is the famous Stari Most (Old Bridge) connecting the eastern (Bosniak) part of Mostar with the western (mostly Croat) part. The bridge was originally built in the years 1556 to 1566 by the ottoman architect Mimar Hajrudin (or Hayreddin) a pupil of the famous Mimar Sinan. In the war it was destroyed on 9th of November 1993. But this symbol of the connection between East and West was reconstructed and inaugurated on 23rd of July 2004.
