    Jumping off the Old Bridge

    by Prasnjavi Updated Apr 1, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every year in the mid summer, young man from Mostar (people call them "Liske" - leafs) have organized jumping off the Old Bridge. As the time passed by, skill of fight against highness and swift, cold Neretva has been improved. Only several places in the world can be proud of such spectacle.
    Although the ruins of the Old Bridge are still under reconstruction, jumps have been lately performed from the platform built on the remains of the Bridge.
    There are some "Leafs" who will jump off for you if you pay them 10 (in summer time) or 20 (in winter time) Euros.

    I was an athlete and it is the reason why I cannot accept that jump from the bridge could be a sport discipline, for me it is a pure exhibitionism which at the end could be very dangerous. I sat under the bridge, on the right bank of the river, from where is the best view of the bridge and jumpers. With the video camera I filmed so-called preparing to jump, and it was almost disgusting.
    Jumper is initially adjusted to a position to jump and shortly afterwards people gather expecting a jump, but instead of jumping the jumper starts with his game. Somehow in his hand occur the cap and he started to walk around collecting the money. After counting the money he repeated the action of collecting, and so at least twice. He jumped only after the sum of collected money have satisfy his "appetite".

    Neretva River is very fast mountain river. It is ideal for water sport as canoeing or kayaking. There is Canoeing Club close to Green market in Old City (left bank). Maybe you can go there and ask to rent a canoe.
