Bridge Diver's Club

Spectacle in Mostar

In summer, young men leap from the parapet of Stari Most, falling more than 20m into the freezing cold Neretva. That's not a suicide attempt but a professional sport – donations are expected from spectators and the divers won't leap until 50KM has been collected.

If you pay the whole sum, you get to watch from a special viewpoint in the club's little Čardak Caffe with commentary from another club member. Or with a little more money and much more courage, train and jump yourself.
