“Nice for photo ops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

The bridge itself isn't that impressive, but the surroundings are nice and make for good photos.

“the sorrow and the pity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

very sad, a non descript bridge but it is the story of Sarajevo in the civil war compressed into 2 young lives.One Muslim and one Catholic killed by snipers,and a microcosm of the nastiness of the whole siege.May they both rest in peace.

“a wonderful History of love but also a tragedy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2010

The story:
Romeo and Juliet in Sarajevo was an international documentary about the deaths of Admira Ismić (born 1968) and Boško Brkić (born 1968). The couple were natives of the former Yugoslavia, living in the city of Sarajevo. Like many other couples and families in Bosnia, they were of different religious backgrounds; she was a Bosniak, and he a Bosnian Serb.[1] They were killed on May 19, 1993, while fleeing the besieged city on Vrbanja bridge.
They became a symbol for the suffering of the people on all sides of the conflict!!!

Even though it symbolizes a tragedy of love a walk on the bridge is so romantic and perfect for a walk with your boyfriend. This is something special that you must experience!
