The bridge that divides Bosnia

The Old Bridge in Mostar is one of Bosnia-Herzegovina’s most famous landmarks. Destroyed in 1993 during the Balkan conflict, it was rebuilt in 2004 and has been seen as a symbol of post-war reconciliation ever since. Today, it’s especially loved for its daily diving spectacles where young men from the city brave a 24 metre drop.

Yet Sasa Kulukcija, a young man from Mostar, thinks otherwise. He thinks that the city – once well-known for its tolerance in having the most mixed marriages in former Yugoslavia – is still divided, with Bosnian Muslims choosing to live on one side and Christian Croats choosing to live on the other.
