Since the 1600's the young men of the town dive from the bridge into the ice cold water of the Neretva River. They once did it for a smile from a beautiful girl , now it is for 35E . When we left they were still perched on the edge of the bridge waiting for those tourist dollars!!
The first person to jump from the bridge since it was re-opened was Enej Kelecija, a local who now resides in the United States.
