Destroyed in 1993 during the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Old Mostar Bridge dating back to the Ottoman period was rebuilt with help from UNESCO, the World Bank, local officials and donor countries.
On 23 July UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura and the President of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Sulejman Tihic, will inaugurate the new bridge, a symbol of reconciliation, in the presence of 10 heads of State from the region.
