    Lovely, ancient, bridge.
    Back in this beautiful city after too long and am staying for a few days. The Crooked Bridge. Was first mentioned in literature in the mid 16th century and had stood until the war of the mid 1990s. It was reconstructed in its current style in 2002, respecting the environment and changes made to it over time.

    Pretty Bridge
    The Kriva Cuprija or the Crooked Bridge, is another hump-backed arch bridge closely resembling the more famous Stari Most, just smaller. The frontage and vault are made of irregular shaped rubble incorporated into the horizontal layers all along the vault. The arch is almost a half circle, with the vertical sides integrating into the abutment.

    Like stepping into a history book ❤️
    We spent about 4 hours strolling in the small market streets and dined by the river near the bridge. While at the dinner table a diver dove into the river from the bridge. It was spectacular. The floors and steps on the bridge are very slippery due to heavy foot traffic turning the pavers into a shiny and slippery surface. Towards the nightfall we felt like we were stepping into a history book. The vibe, the people and lighting wouldn't want to let you go.

    A smaller and less touristic version
    For a smaller and less touristic version of the Stari Most, the Kriva Cuprija (or Crooked Bridge) is worth a visit. It is older than the Stari Most by nearly a decade, it is thought to have been a test-run of sorts for the later construction of the larger and more famous bridge. It has only one arch so is relatively small, but still illustrates typical Islamic architecture of the 16th century. The bridge was washed away by floods in the year 2000 but was rebuilt with aid from UNESCO a year later, and was relatively unscathed by the civil war. The bridge spans the Radobolja River, which flows into the Neretva near Stari Most. It’s a few steps south of the Old Bazaar on the western side of Stari Most, and connects to Jusovina, a walking street with several laid-back restaurants. The bridge and its surroundings are quite pretty, and since it’s only a minute away from the Old Bazaar, it’s an obvious add-on to our stroll through the Old Bazaar. We were fortunate to spend a night in Mostar and strolled through the area after sunset, when the small valley and its restaurants took on more romantic atmosphere.

Lovely little bridge which was pointed out to us whilst walking up to the main event. The arch is a perfect semicircle and the architecture is worth a look.

Nice place to take pictures and see wonderful old architecture. Its very easy to find, as the centre is really very small. A few restaurants close by

Great smaller version of main bridge, when exploring the old town area make your way down to the river for closer views.

While walking down towards the river you will cross this bridge, you get a good early view of the bridge as you walk down the street and that’s a great location to get a landscape picture of bridge and surrounding area.

Very close to main bridge and worth seeing.

This bridge looks very similar to the Old Bridge and was built before it (supposedly as an experiment/practice before the big one). It was damaged during the war and eventually collapsed, so the one now is a reconstruction, just like the Old Bridge. It was still neat to see, and we had fun comparing it to its larger sibling. We crossed it on our way down to the beach under the Old Bridge, so stopped to take a photo and admire it.

Small but worth a quick stop if walking by the area. Older than the more iconic bridge and still historically relevant, with a great back drop.

A cute bridge that is historically older than the old bridge. Not as crowded as the Old Bridge with more charm.
