Mostar in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina is on CNN’s list of Europe's 15 most beautiful towns.

CNN writes that the Old Bridge, which was built by the Ottomans in the 16th century, “was long considered one of the finest examples of Balkan Islamic architecture.”

“Arcing high across the Neretva river, it's one of the most famous sights in the Balkans, and traditionally locals dive from the bridge — today it's a stop on the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series,” the CNN article says.

“The bridge was destroyed in November 1993 by Croat forces during the Balkan wars. A reconstructed bridge was built in 2004, and today, Mostar is a beloved destination in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and a popular day trip from Dubrovnik, over the border in Croatia,” it says.

Two more towns from the region are on CNN’s list – Korcula in Croatia and Piran in Slovenia.
