More Photos(IV) of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Hercegovina (June 19-22, 2008)

Looking down on the Miljacka River and Sarajevo's many bridges from the old city walls. Sarajevo's most famous bridge is Latinska cuprija (Latin Bridge), where Gavrilo Princip assassinated Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand, precipitating World War I.
