Crooked Bridge (Kriva Cuprija), Mostar

4.4
Crooked Bridge (Kriva Cuprija) was designed and built as a test model for the construction of the bigger and more famous Old Bridge. The Turks built the model to see whether a bridge with such a semicircular stone arch could withstand loads. The bridge was mentioned for the first time in the endowment of a wealthy merchant, Cejvan Cehaja, in 1558, which means that it was built at least eight years before the Old Bridge. Climb the stone steps on either side of the bridge and walk over its cobblestoned path. The arch is a perfect semicircle measuring 8.56 m (28 ft) wide and 4.15 m (13.6 ft) tall. Floods destroyed the bridge in 2001, but it was rebuilt on the initiative of UNESCO.

  • Inner city of Old Mostar is a very nice place to visit. The Crooked Bridge is over a smaller creek that flows to the Neretva river. Many local restaurants nearby to enjoy  more »
  • looking at it from the Divan restaurant, it looks the same as the old deck, but smaller in size... definitely just as quaint
