Long overshadowed by stories of war, modern-day Bosnia and Herzegovina shines.

Its dramatic mountain countryside, cobbled streets, age-old cultures, minarets and temples entice you to turn another corner and keep exploring. Get back to nature, step back in time or back up onto the dance floor to party the night away with Sarajevo’s young and beautiful.

How we're giving back

In Bosnia, we stay in locally run accommodation including guesthouses, smaller-scale hotels and homestays in an effort to support the local economies. We also visit locally-run restaurants and markets where travellers will have opportunities to support local businesses and purchase handicrafts created by local artisans.
