About Mitrovica

The city of Mitrovica is divided into a North and South by the Ibar river. The Northern section is mainly populated by Serbs, with some Albanian sole and mixed neighbourhoods along the banks of the Ibar. The southern section is mainly populated by Albanians, with few Serbians. There are several bridges that connect the two sections. Much has been made of the main Mitrovica Bridge running from the Albanian side to the Serbian side. It has been the scene of violence in the past, notably in 1999. It is completely safe to cross by daylight but may be less safe at night, depending on the general political climate. There were no reported disturbances on the bridge on the evening of the Serbian general election in May 2012 - the type of event which would ordinarily spark trouble.
