A fairytale-like bridge in the Old Town
Beautiful Ottoman architecture is located 50 meters from the famous Old Bridge. Locals call it “Kriva Ćuprija” or “Crooked Bridge“, and it is the oldest bridge here in the urban city area. It was designed as a smaller model for a larger version, nowadays called the Old Bridge. Turkish architect Ćejvan Ketoda built this bridge in 1558. What is interesting is that they made the bridge in order to test structure and building methods to construct a larger version.
The Crooked Bridge is a rather unusual and charming piece of architecture. It is only 8.5 meters wide and 4 meters tall. Unlike most of the bridges in Mostar, this beauty lies on the river Radobolja and its surroundings are very beautiful. You may find yourselves staring at the mesmerizing views that will leave you stunned.
There are 3 or 4 different ways to find this bridge since its surrounded by restaurants, taverns, and hotels. Nevertheless, you will be able to orientate through the streets.
Crooked Bridge is set in a quiet cobbled street in the Old Town. Dining in Hindin Han or Restaurant Divan, you will be able to enjoy a beautiful view of the bridge. Likewise, taking a pint of beer in a Black Dog Pub will give you a perfect look at this monumental beauty.
