Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

These are images from our trip back in December 2014 to Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mostar is a city about 2 hours from Sarajevo, in the Herzegovina part of the country. Its wine country, very pretty and scenic. The city, alas, has a very bloody history from the recent war and it still holds deep scars, very much split on ethnic lines (Croats or Bosniaks). The pictures are taken from the famous bridge of Mostar, perhaps one of the best examples of Ottoman architecture. Unfortunately the bridge is a replica of the original, as the original was blown apart during the 1990's Bosnian war.  Very pretty with green aqua water below, I've heard its just breathtaking in the summer.
