Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegowina

Absolutely stunning night time view of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Mostar Bridge in Bosnia and Hercegowina, sent by my Facebook friend Snjezana Makas.
The bridge as seen today is a reconstruction of the old Ottoman bridge built in the 16th century that crosses the river Neretva in Mostar. The original bridge was destroyed in the Corat-Bosniak War in 1993. The reconstruced bridge opened on 23rd July 2004 and is one of the country's most famous landmarks.  It was inscribed into the UNESCO list in 2005.
