Dear Adventure Travelers,
Did you know that for a small fee of a mere 25 Euros, you can personally perform a (supervised) high dive off the most famous bridge in the Balkans?
The Stari Most or Old Bridge of Mostar, built in the Sixteenth Century, stands 25 meters (82 feet) above the Neretva River. By comparison, the Olympics Platform Dive is a measly 10 meters (33 feet).
In 1993, during the Civil War in the former Yugoslavia, the original bridge built by the Ottomans was destroyed.
The elegant bridge was rebuilt in 2004 and is the most recognizable landmark in the country. There’s a lot of history here.*
