The Siege of Mostar peaked in 1993 during the Croat-Bosniak conflict lasting eighteen months as fighting took place as Bosnia and Herzegovina declared independence from Yugoslavia. The city was divided in half between the two battling armies. Mostar, dating back over four hundred years, was mostly destroyed through the fighting. Although reconstruction has slowly commenced in the last decades, evidence of the war remains in bullet ravaged buildings still standing throughout the city. (Photo by Marco Secchi/Getty Images)
