Places to visit

Rafting on Neretva River, Bosnia Herzegovina

Adrenaline overload

Bosnia-Herzegovina is a fantastic place for river-sports and the whitewater rafting is some of the best in Europe. Go to the popular town of Bihać for year-round rafting and canoeing along the Una River. The country also offers great winter sports – after all it was the host of the 1984 Winter Olympics. It has excellent slopes, gorgeous scenery and it’s much cheaper but not so well-known ski destinations. Jahorina, Bosnia’s second tallest mountain, offers a range of slopes from beginner runs through to expert. Hiking is possible during the rest of the year.

Bihać can be reached by train from Sarajevo. Jahorina can be reached by bus from the centre of Sarajevo.

Old bridge, Mostar, Bosnia Herzegovina
Old bridge, Mostar, Bosnia Herzegovina

For the culturally curious

Mostar, the capital of the Herzegovina region breathes a flawless charm. The main focal point of the city is the 16th century Ottoman bridge that arches over the sapphire waters of the river Neretva, known as Stari Most (Old Bridge). Sadly the bridge was destroyed in 1993 during the Croat-Bosniak war, but has since been (painstakingly) rebuilt. Surrounding this area are a number of mosques – the oldest and most sacred in the area is Karadoz-Bey Mosque, a splendid example of Muslim architecture of that period.

The Old Bridge and Karadoz-Bey Mosque are a 20-minute walk from the main train station in Mostar.

Kravica Waterfalls, Bosnia Herzegovina
Kravica Waterfalls, Bosnia Herzegovina

Mindblowing beauty

One of the most heavenly sights in Bosnia-Herzegovina (and in Europe) is the Kravica waterfall, located along the Trebižat river. The crystal water from the river appears to spill out of the blanket of the green forest that surrounds it, tumbling into a turquoise pool! For more breathtaking beauty visit Sutjeska National Park – one of Europe’s remaining primeval forests. The river Sutjeska sculpts its way through the 4 great mountains of this area – including Bosnia-Herzegovina’s highest, Maglić (2386m) which makes for a challenging hike.

Tours for the Kravica waterfall and Sutjeska National Park can be booked from Sarajevo to include transport to the sites.

Sarajevo - a welcoming city

Sarajevo, the capital, has a lot of history to be dug into and the warmth of the people make it very welcoming. Visit the famous Latin Bridge – the location of Franz Ferdinand’s assassination and the site from which World War I spawned. There are also a number of mosques scattered around – make sure you catch the fine Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque.

Sarajevo’s train station is a 30-minute walk from the centre of the city.
