Old Bridge - Stari Most, Mostar: 41 reviews and 105 photos


The Towers built at each end of the Old Bridge add even more charm and beauty to the overall appearance of the bridge (as if needed!!!) The towers were not built at the same time as the bridge but were added later but do look to complete the bridge acting as pillars complimenting the bridge at either end. The Halebia tower is located on the right bank while the Tara tower is on the left bank. The towers while not entirely destroyed during the recent conflicts did require considerable reconstruction after the war but now, like the bridge, stand proudly again on the banks of the river. The towers are not mirror images which adds to the uniquesness of the bridge and tower. Entering onto the bridge from the west, you pass through the gate of one of the towers while you do not pass through the tower on the east bank but turn away from it as you cross the bridge as the bridge curves onto a cobblestone street.
