Rebuilt Mostar Bridge inaugurated by UN as symbol of Balkan reconciliation

23 July 2004 – The iconic Old Bridge of Mostar, which for centuries was among the most famous sites in the Balkans before being destroyed in 1993 in the war that engulfed the former Yugoslavia, was re-inaugurated today by United Nations and local officials as a symbol of reconciliation and human solidarity in a broken land.

Flanked by two fortified towers, the single hump-backed Ottoman arch - four metres wide, 30 metres long and constructed of 456 white stone blocks between 1557 and 1566 - collapsed into the waters of the Neretva River after being hit by heavy shells during the fighting in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The bridge was destroyed for its symbolic value. For this same reason the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) pledged to rebuild it. Just four months after its collapse the agency called for its reconstruction.

Today UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura and the chairman of Bosnia and Herzegovina's tripartite presidency, Sulejman Tihic, inaugurated the restored span in the presence of leaders from southeastern Europe and other top European political figures.
