most_stari

Stari most “Old bridge”

 

According to the inscriptions in the Old bridge, it was finished in 974 ah. or in 1566 ad. The building of it however started nine years prior.  It was built by Mimar Hajrudin, student of the great Turkish architect Sinan. It had bean standing for almost 500 years when it in 1993 was blown up in the recent aggression on BiH. In July 2004, eleven years after it’s destruction it rose up again, elegant and beautiful as ever.

 

most_lucki

Lucki bridge

 

This bridge was built in 1913 during the Austro-Hungarian period. It is said that it was financed by Mostar’s most known mayor thru all times, Mujaga Komadina. When built this was worlds longest single span bridge. It spaned over Neretva with a length of  72 meters. Like all the other bridges this one was not spared. More exactly when the war began this bridge was the first one to go. 13 years later this bridge too was restored and now looks exactly the way it once did. Whit this bridge, now all of Mostars bridges are back where they belong.  

 

most_carinski_2

Carinski (emperor’s) bridge

 

Carinski bridge was built in 1917. It was at first built to be a rail bridge but is today one of Mostar’s most trafficked bridges. This bridge rises 54 meters above Neretva and it spans it with two vaults. As all of Mostar’s bridges this one was destroyed in 1992. It was after the war the first bridge to be rebuilt in 1996.

 

 

most_titov_2

Bridge Musala

 

This is Mostar’s second oldest bridge. It was built in 1882 in the name of  the Austrian emperor, Franz Joseph. That also came to be the name of the bridge in its early years. Since then the bridge has bean called Tito’s bridge (1945-1992), that is until it’s destruction, and since 2002 the bridge is called Musala after the square Musala on the left bank of the river.

 

most_bunur_2

Bunur bridge

 

This is Mostar’s newest bridge. When built during the war this bridge was the only link between Neretva’s two banks after a time with no connections at all. After the war the bridge was reinforced with steel pillars and got asphalted to live up to the standards of a modern bridge.
