#1041: Mystery City 8
And so to reveal the city this week’s images have come from. The city is Mostar, in Bosnia-Herzegovina, an amazing place, a welcoming place and, in many ways, a humbling place too.
I am embarrassed by the fact that the war was fought here within my lifetime, and yet I know very little about it. The centuries-old bridge in this image was destroyed at the height of the Yugoslav wars, and its destruction by Serbian fire became a symbol of the ensuing battles. It has since been painstakingly rebuilt, reopening in 2004.
