The river splits the city of Mostar with Croats on one side and Muslims on the other. The city saw intense fighting during the civil war & still carries the scars with bombed buildings, shell holes & bullet marks throughout. The bridges were bombed and destroyed and were only rebuilt in their original style in 2004.
The local boys show off to tourists by diving from the centre some 20 metres from the 13° water below. These guys seem to just hang about – doubt if they done much diving recently.
Some locals like a more chilled Sunday.
More my cup of tea ( rather coffee). Around the bridge cobbled streets pack in bars & restaurants & tat shops.
Then on the Muslim side we find the shade & solitude of a traditional Ottoman house.
