  • The bridge on Hamdije Čemerlića Street crosses the Miljacka River at a point that is nearly half-way along Wilson's Promenade and connects the neighborhoods of Grbavica, Pofalići and Novo Sarajevo Municipality.

    This concrete bridge was built in 1951 and, until 1955, it bore the name, Bridge of Brotherhood and Unity, after the combat slogan used by the Partisans (fighters in the resistance movement during the Second World War). The name also came to stand for the important policy that was in place in Communist Yugoslavia, which aimed to affirm equality and unity among the nations of former Yugoslavia.

    During the last war, this bridge was on the front lines and represented a point where communication was carried out between opposing sides during the fragile truces that were overseen by United Nations Forces.

    A thorough reconstruction of this bridge was carried out recently, in 2012.
