Travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina

Even in the summer months when traveling is at its peak, you’ll find that Bosnia and Herzegovina are often ignored. The conflict that took place here more than two decades ago still weighs on the minds of people and often encourages them to stay away.

Unfortunately that means one of the most exciting destinations Europe has to offer right now will never be experienced. Here is why you should visit this nation for your next holiday.

Fall In Love with the Landscape

The dramatic cliffs of Bosnia and Herzegovina seem to stretch up high enough to touch the clouds. You’ll find snow-capped peaks that call out to visitors for an adventure. There is 25 kilometers of coastline to enjoy as well along the Adriatic. Sometimes just renting a vehicle and driving through the striking landscapes make for the perfect day during your time here.

Go Beyond the Ottoman

In cities like Sarajevo, you’ll find the cobblestone architecture of the Ottoman Empire is on full display. If you get out into the countryside, however, you’ll find cities like Jajce or Pocitelj that offer dramatic medieval buildings and pre-Ottoman exploration opportunities. All of this is accompanied by communities that readily welcome strangers with plenty of coffee thanks to the Turkish influences that are strong here.

Incredible Shopping Opportunities

Many of this nation’s neighbors have pricing that matches any other Western European destination. In Bosnia and Herzegovina, you’ll find a much different story. Not only is the local craftsmanship some of the world’s best, but you’ll find that 5 Bosnian marks will give you a great meal [that’s about 2.50euro]. Look for copper goods and lace at local bazaars.
