On the way from Budva to Sarajevo, we made a 2 hour lunch stop at Mostar. After lunch, we walked together as a Contiki to take a group photo in front of the Mostar bridge, then walked up the Mostar bridge to watch professional bridge jumpers do the Mostar bridge dive. It is 24 metres from the arch of the bridge to the river. The river is deep and cold year round. One can get trained by the club to jump of the bridge. Although the bridge jump looks safe and the river is calm, some non-professionals have died in the past due to wrong position of landing into the river.

The Mostar bridge in Mostar is basically the icon of Bosnia -- this is the picture you see on tour brochures.
