The Latin Bridge
This was taken in Sarajevo on the first day of Eid (4th October 2014). My mum and i decided to take a walk around the city. We caught a cab to the Latin Bridge. It is only a two minute walk from the old town.
On 28th of June, 1914, Sarajevo found itself in the epicenter of world politics. Gavrilo Princip, a 18 year old Serbian school boy, assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir apparent to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Right behind me in the above photo is the Latin Bridge (Latinska ćuprija). On the northern end of the bridge was the site of the assassination where you can find a museum on everything that happened that day 100 years ago which would change the world.
The Miljacka is the River that passes through Sarajevo. After you have explored the old town, take a stroll by the river. There are several bridges, so you can go anywhere, taking in the sights or stopping for a drink or bite to eat. The river is very shallow, with little waterfalls as it flows down hill.
