NEW BRIDGE FOR AN OLD CITY
The war in Bosnia and Herzegovina of the early 1990s saw the destruction of a priceless 16th century bridge in the historic city of Mostar. Also destroyed was the urban fabric on both sides of the Neretva River. Now, the bridge has been rebuilt, in its old form, and the population is celebrating the real and symbolic reunification of the divided city. Next week we'll learn how the bridge was restored and why it's considered the centerpiece of a larger initiative for Mostar's rehabilitation.
