The story is what is important here, perhaps not so important to see the actual bridge. Depends on how you feel about these things. The bridge itself is not beautiful, but the story of two young people who could not flee the evils of war/siege is poignant.

A great view from the bridge - not to be missed on a visit to Sarajevo's center. A walking tour staple.

The poet was inspired by observing Juliet from a distance, they never met, she was aristocrat and he was a poor poet, the bridge is lovely and they offer boat rides down the river.

This bridge is crucial here in Sarajevo, not so much for its architectural beauty but because of its historical importance. I saw a documentary narrated that during the war in Sarajevo killing a pair of young lovers, who died embraced here because of Serbian troops besieging the city, this is the origin of the name "Romeo and Juliet Bridge".

This bridge has a lot of history in the 1990s, but it's all sad. The bridge was the site of six deaths and only the first two are memorialized; however, the second two are the most famous. And the last two? Never mentioned. Walk to the middle of the bridge and stop. Turn around and look around you. Look up... More

One of Sarajevo's bridges, known after sad events that took place there. First 2 victims of Bosnian war died on this bridge. After that, Bosko and Admira - two young lovers were killed near this bridge... They were called Romeo and Juliet of Sarajevo. Lots of sad memories and war stories are related to this place.

Three events happened here, but sadly, only one is remembered: 1- the death of Suada Dilberović and Olga Sučić, first victims of the siege and conflict. A memorial is on the bridge. 2- the death, nearby, of Admira Ismic and Bosko Brkic, the Romeo and Juliet of Sarajevo. 3- the death of two french UN soldiers, killed while they were... More

On this bridge "Vrbanja bridge" are killed Boško Brkić and Admira Ismić in time of siege of Sarajevo. They have been killed by Serbian snipers. At the moment when they were running over the street, they were actually planning to get out of Bosnia and live normal and peaceful life in any other country. Boško was a Serbian and Admira... More

As with the other reviews, this is just a bridge. There is no memorial to Bosko and Admira. There is nothing to notes that this is where the iconic couple lost their lives. Here is the thing though. For those who have just a slice of humanity, go and have a look. Then you are remembering just one of the... More

It is an average looking bridge which now has padlocks on put by recent lovers (similar to that found in Krakow - but less of them). There is no monument or explanation on or near the bridge although the story is very moving.
