Sarajevo is a city in which even strangers can feel at home. Neither geographically expansive nor characterised by large buildings, the city retains a particular, arresting charm with its abundance of busy café’s and abiding tradition of hospitality. The city’s breathtaking backdrop of seemingly endless hills and towering mountains have in a sense always isolated the city, creating a timeless world, which despite its seclusion has always kept its doors open to the rest of the world. Although Sarajevo is a capital city typified by the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it also possesses aunique ambience that seeps into the soul.

This resort is characterized by its long cave (500 meters) decorated by forms of ice hanging from the roof and infiltrated by springs from different directions.

Made of stone, light and water, Jajce is a city with the most recognizable symbol – its magnificent 20 meters high waterfall in the heart of the town, making it one of the most unique town in the world. Jajce was first built in the 14th century and served as the capital of the independent Bosnian kingdom during its time. Travnik was famous for being the capital city of the governors of Bosnia from 1697 to 1850, and having a cultural heritage dating from that period. Bihac is a charming little town centered on the banks of the Una River. The town is teeming with café’s that inevitably gravitate around the beautiful Una. It is more than worth a visit to Bihac or any of the towns that live off these emerald waters.
Inhabiting high, isolated areas was the tradition of the first settlers in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Vlasic was not only home to old Illyrian highlanders and followers of the medieval Bosnian Church but also to a large shepherd community that continues to live off the fertile lands across the vast plateau of Vlasic Mountain. Vlasic is known for its mild and easily accessible highlands. The road infrastructure is excellent and most places can be reached by jeep. The mountain is often used as a shortcut from Travnik to Banja Luka.
Mostar is an absolutely stunning town that is definitely worth visiting. It has a glorious medieval feel, a captivating and enticing river of gorgeous colours and of course, its famous bridge, a massive stone construction whose destruction came to symbolise the war in Bosnia. Meticulously reconstructed, it is now one of the most popular tourist sights in the Balkans. The highlight of the town is undoubtedly the Old Bridge. Built by the Ottomans in the 1560s, it connected the Muslim and Croatian halves of the city.
Buna is the finest example of an underground karst river. It flows out of a 200m cliff wall and single-handedly creates the Buna River. Unsurprisingly, the Ottoman sultan was impressed, and ordered a tekija to be built right next to it. This 16th century house/monastery was built for the Dervish cults and is still one of the most mystical places in all of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is open to visitors all year round and serves cold drinks, tea and Turkish coffee in a beautiful garden overlooking the source of the River. Among the most fascinating naturalistic features of this region are the sparkling waterfalls o f Kravice. The waters branch out, cascading from the tuff walls from a height of 30 meters, and they form a natural amphitheatre, 150-meter wide, creating spectacular effects that bring to mind, even if in a more modest dimension, the imposing Niagara waterfalls. Popular in the summer season above all with rafting en thusiasts and locals, it is the perfect place for all those who wish to relax and enjoy themselves. Konjic is quite nice to stroll through. The center of town is rather pleasant too, with stunning views in every direction. The main street is often closed to vehicle traffic and is filled with the young and old walking, hanging out in café’s or selling their wares along the riverside markets. People in Konjic are very easy going and friendly so feel free to ask someone for directions or to engage in some small talk. One of the not-to-be-missed attractions is certainly Kamena cuprija (Stone Bridge) built in 1682. It was destroyed during World War II, but was rebuilt in 2009.
