Suada and Olga bridge
Suada and Olga bridge (Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian: Most Suade i Olge / Мост Суаде и Олге), also known as old name Vrbanja bridge (Vrbanja most / Врбања мост) is a bridge across the Miljacka in Sarajevo.
It is named after Suada Dilberović and Olga Sučić, the first victims shot at the beginning of the Siege of Sarajevo. On 19 May 1993, the couple Admira Ismić and Boško Brkić, a Bosniak and a Bosnian Serb, were also shot while trying to cross the bridge, which was the subject of the 1994 documentary Romeo and Juliet in Sarajevo. In 1995 it was the site of the battle of Vrbanja Bridge between French Troupes de Marine of the United Nations Protection Force and Army of Republika Srpska.
