Mostar  [Bosnia-Herzegovina, 1999]
For 500 years, Stari Most (the Old Bridge) provided one of the few crossings of the Neretva River in Mostar. The town was unique because its population was split almost evenly between Serbs, Croats and Muslims, and its bridge became a symbol of the ethnic diversity of Bosnia and the ability of its different groups to live together. Sadly, despite surviving 500 years of invasions and two world wars, it did not survive the Bosnian civil war. It has since been rebuilt.
