We took a day trip to Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovinia. This town was under Ottoman rule with local people running the place. Even though the Turks did not come and personally control the town, Islamic culture, architecture, and food remain present. The town is very much trying to market this fact, making the famous bridge the iconic city symbol on its city flag. The architect for the bridge was the student of the architect that created the Taj Mahal. Mostari is the word for bridge keeper, and that’s how the city got its name. It is quite the city symbol. Even though it was a bit of a rainy day, the bridge pops from the photo with its white stone.
