Photographer's Note

Most je dobio ime po nekom Arslan-agi, koji je pobjegao iz Herceg Novog, nakon što su ga - 1687 zauzeli Venecijanci. On je od osmanskih vlasti dobio koncesiju da naplaćuje mostarinu, pa je i izgradio kuću pored mosta, uz nju je kasnije izraslo čitavo naselje nazvano Arslanagići, koje je danas potopljeno.
Za Drugog svjetskog rata 1943. most su minirali četnici želevši tako zaustaviti partizane. Na sreću nisu sve mine eksplodirale pa je oštećeno samo lijevo krilo mosta, koji je nakon tog brzo popravljen.
Nakon izgradnje hidrocentrale i akumulacionog jezera - 1965. most je potopljen, ali je slijedeće godine spušten nivo vode kako bi se mogao rastaviti, kamen po kamen. Dugo je tako rastavljen ležao na obližnjem polju, pa je onda od 1970. do 1972. ponovno podignut, ovaj put 10 km nizvodno gotovo u centru Trebinja, od tada je jedna od njegovih najvećih atrakcija.

Arslanagić's bridge
The bridge is named after a Arslan-aga, who ran away from Herceg Novi, after being, in 1687, occupied by the Venetians. He was the Ottoman government granted the concession to collect toll, so he built a house next to the bridge, close to it ​​later grew the whole village called Arslanagić, which is now submerged.
During World War II in 1943. Most mined Chetniks who so wish to stop the partisans. Fortunately not all mines exploded and only the left wing of the bridge was damaged, so it was repaired quickly after that.
After the construction of hydroelectric power station and dam lake - in 1965. bridge was submerged, but in the following year, water level was lowered to be able to disassemble the bridgr, stone by stone. It has long been so disassembled lying in a nearby field, and then between 1970 and 1972 it was again raised, this time 10 km downstream almost in the center of Trebinje. Since then is one of its biggest attractions.
