A true gem where you don't expect to find one

I heard about Mostar while planning my trip to the Dalmatian Coast. After i saw photos of the place i was sold and i took i half-day detour on my way to Dubrovnik to see this.
When you first enter the city, you get your first image of the damage the war has inflicted in these parts: houses that are crumbled in ruins, shot, abandoned, with mortar marks on the walls. But don't let these images ruin your experience, even though they are interesting to see nonetheless.
When you reach the Old City, what strikes you the most is the fact that it seems to have landed there from the orient: ottoman style houses, mosques (prayers resound from the minarets five times a day, according to muslim tradition), lively bazaars and a whole bunch of crowded tourists gathered to see all this (I must admit, i didn't expect that many tourists in these parts).
Now, to the bridge itself, the main attraction. There are four important things to know about the bridge:
-First of all, it was constructed by the ottoman in 1557-1566, and, at
the time of its completion it was the largest man-made arch bridge
in the world;
-Second, it was destroyed completely in the Balkan Wars in 1993. It
took 60 shells of heavy artillery to collapse it. In 2001-2004,
the bridge was reconstructed as the original, using salvaged pieces
from the bottom of the river and local materials. It has since been
declared an Unesco World Heritage Site.
-Third, the bridge is most spectacular as seen from afar, not while
crossing it, as it stands some 24 meters above the river, and has
a 30 meters span.
-Fourth and finally, there is a group of people that live there, that
jumps into the river from the bridge. If you are daring enough you
could try it, but beware that you will be jumping from 24 meters
into a water that is very, very cold.
Back to the old town, there are many shops, as stated before, where
you can buy souvenirs, most of them traditional, or related to the war
and the communist years of Yugoslavia. There are some nice cafes and
restaurants (Tip: try the local Cevapcici, you would not regret it). You could also visit the mosque, and i recommend you to do that, because from the courtyard are some of the nicest views of the Old Bridge.

All in all, a very pleasant surprise and experience, and, if the opportunity arises, i wouldn't say no to going back to Mostar.
