Travel: Mostar

Mostar was the last on the list of visited cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The atmosphere in the city was gray and sad. It was raining and the place appeared to be completely deserted. I suppose it is not so in the spring and summer when the city is full of tourists.
 Kriva Ćuprija- Crooked Bridge
Public Turkish Bath  
 Neretva river
Kujundžiluk- The Old Bazaar
Koski Mehmed Pasina Džamija -Koski Mehmed Pasha Mosque

 Stari Most - The Old Bridge. Originally built by the Turks in 1566, it was destroyed in 1993, but rebuilt in 2004.
Karađozbegova Džamija -Karadjoz-Bey Mosque
Formerly Mostar was one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the country. Today it is the city divided between ethnic groups. After the war, a lot of buildings and monuments have been rebuilt. I hope, one day, the relationship between the divided ethnic groups will be renewed. 
Maybe this rainbow over the bridge is a sign of a better future for this beautiful city.
