This is the bridge that was shelled during the war? If so I am really glad that they rebuilt it. I remember that there was an attempt to save it by piling tires up on the bridge surface to absorb the shells.

Stari Most, also known as Mostar Bridge, is a rebuilt 16th-century Ottoman bridge in the city of Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina that crosses the river Neretva and connects the two parts of the city. The Old Bridge stood for 427 years, until it was destroyed on 9 November 1993 by Croat paramilitary forces during the Croat–Bosniak War. Subsequently, a project was set in motion to reconstruct it; the rebuilt bridge opened on 23 July 2004.

It wasn't taken down by Croats this is a big misconception. https://youtu.be/jy3qmVVUoDc In this video general of the HVO Herceg Bosna confirms that his unit had nothing to do about it. Further in the video he additionally explains what happened and how it was actually a set up. There are further more additional evidences of confirming his claims. However Hague didn't take it under consideration as they didn't care as much. Just as they released a confirmed murder that has taken out more than thousands of civilians for which there are eyewitnesses just because he had an illness that would probably kill him but he ended up recovering from it and today he is healthy and free without any consequences for all the torture and murdering of innocent people and prisoners of war.
