Photographer's Note

View of the most famous bridge of Mostar.
Stari Most (English: Old Bridge) is a reconstruction of a 16th-century Ottoman bridge in the city of Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina that crosses the river Neretva and connects two parts of the city. The Old Bridge stood for 427 years, until it was destroyed on 9 November 1993 by Croat forces during the Croat–Bosniak War.
After the end of the war, plans were raised to reconstruct the bridge. It was decided to build a bridge as similar as possible to the original, using the same technology and materials. The bridge was re-built with local materials , using Ottoman construction techniques.Reconstruction commenced on 7 June 2001. The reconstructed bridge was inaugurated on 23 July 2004./wiki/
