Cuisine, history, and a confluence of cultures at the Stari Most (old bridge) in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In the fall of 1993, a few weeks into my senior year in high school, this bridge was brought down by the instruments of war. Today, it has been rebuilt and leads to some of the best cuisine in the Balkans. From sipping a Turkish coffee with a lump of sugar between your teeth, to fire-grilled ćevapi with ajvar, the bridge is a gateway to a variety of incredible taste sensations.

Here is a 360° photo taken from below the bridge. I took the photo a few days after the 24th anniversary of the bridge’s destruction.
