Crooked Bridge - Kriva Cuprija, Mostar: 11 reviews and 28 photos

While the Stari Most steals the show for Mostar's most famous bridge, there is another beautiful, albeit much smaller stone bridge in Mostar. The narrow single arch footbridge, known as the crooked bridge is similar in style to the Stari Most and its exact date of construction is not known but the perfect semi-circular shape is another exquisite example of Mostar's turkish architectural style. The 'crookedness' of the bridge can be seen when walking towrds the steps leading over the bridge, with its' walls of the bridge having an angular appearance at the ends. Luck does not seem to befall the brdiges of Mostar as this bridge too was destroyed in December 2000, this time at the hands of nature, when heavy floods washed the bridge away. Thankfully the bridge was been fully restored and is can now once again standing proudly over the small Radobolja stream.
