Photographer's Note

This is the bridge in Sarajevo where the Archduke Franz Ferdinand from Austria & his wife Sophie were assassinated by Gavrilo Princip in 1914. The fatal shots precipitating WWI were fired from the left. The Ottoman built bridge dates from 1565 AD, replacing an earlier wooden bridge built in 1541 AD. More info here:
