Mostar: Hope for War-Torn Bosnia

Mostar is a city located in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and is an easy drive from Dubrovnik. As we drove across the border, the transition was dramatic – from the Latin alphabet to the Cyrillic; from beautiful coastal buildings to houses that were still pockmarked with bullets or fully shelled.

Pictured here is the Old Bridge (Stari Most). It was destroyed in 1993 during the war, much to the dismay of many. However, in 2004 the bridge was rebuilt and stands today as a beacon of hope for the future of this war-torn country.
