With its stunning natural setting, culturally diverse - and, at times, turbulent - history, and modern vibrancy, Sarajevo is a busy city which now actively welcomes visitors to its eclectic streets. The Islamic, Orthodox, Catholic and Judaic influences and religious traditions live on side by side here, in the formerly contested capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina set against the misty backdrop of the Dinaric Alps.
Bosnia and HerzegovinaThe historical centres of Sarajevo and Mostar, along with the rural countryside of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the beautiful mountains, medieval castle ruins, rafting rivers and rushing waterfalls offer endless opportunities for exploration. Bosnia and Herzegovina is one of the best value destinations of Europe, with affordable prices for accommodation, food and even the possibility to have a budget friendly skiing holiday. The country’s atmosphere is characterised by a unique blend of East and West; the horrors of the civil war of the 1990s still hold a prominent place in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s history, but it now well and truly is a safe and fascinating destination to travel.
