“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!
