In itself, the Latin Bridge will not strike you: it is rather small, although splendidly designed in stone and plaster, and is the oldest bridge in Sarajevo, a fundamental point of passage in a city cut in two by the Miljacka. However, it is a key place in twentieth-century European history: here he was assassinated, at the hands of the young Bosnian student Gavrilo Princip, the heir to the throne of Austria and Hungary archduke Francis Ferdinand. The episode, which today may seem minor, was the spark that sparked the First World War: a fundamental junction of history, also ours, passed through this small bridge.

Il Ponte Latino, il più vecchio rimasto in città, è uno dei luoghi più importanti della Storia dell'umanità. E' qui che avvenne l'assassinio dell'erede al trono dell'Impero Austro-Ungarico nel 1914, l'evento scatenante la 1a guerra mondiale. Di fronte alla lapide sul Ponte che commemora l'evento, c'è anche un Piccolo Museo dedicato.

Es el puente más famoso de Sarajevo, en inglés llamado Latin bridge. Está en Bascarsija, la parte antigua de la ciudad y su fama no proviene solo de su estructura de piedra y encanto romántico, sino también porque junto a ese puente fue asesinado el heredero al trono del imperio Austro-húngaro, el archiduque Francisco Fernando, lo que derivaría en la Primera Guerra Mundial.
