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.

City A-Z

Banja Luka

First mentioned in the late 15th century, the long history of Banja Luka has allowed this community to develop a rich culture. Several museums help to tell this story, including an Ethnographic Museum, the Museum of Bosanska Krajina, and the MSURS, which is a museum of modern art. You’ll find numerous cultural sites are available to tour in Banja Luka, but not may be as important as Banksi Dvor. Built in the 1930s, this representative bulding is in the center...

Mostar

The rugged charm of Southern Bosnia comes alive for visitors who make their way to Mostar. Situated on the Neretva River, the city was named after the keepers of the bridge that led to the city in Medieval times. The Old Bridge, built in the 16th century, is the city’s most recognizable landmark and an excellent example of Islamic culture. Numerous festivals are held in Mostar throughout the year, allowing visitors to participate in the local culture in various ways....

Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina

The city of Sarajevo brings back memories of incredible moments of heroism and troublesome scars that cover terrible wounds. Home to the 1984 Winter Olympics, many of the venues that saw proud accomplishments have fallen into grave disrepair. During the Bosnian War of Independence, Serbian forces sieged the city for nearly three years, targeted civilians with bombings and snipers. In total, over 11,000 innocents were killed during this conflict. Many escaped through underground tunnels, unsure of what the future held. Today Sarajevo...
