Bosnia and Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina has emerged from its turbulent past like the proverbial phoenix from the ashes. Today it is one of Europe’s fastest-growing tourism destinations. This independent country on the Balkan Peninsula was formed in the wake of a three-year civil war and cemented peace in the region. The diversity that once divided it now adds to its allure. Enjoy the mix of influences of the Serbs, Bosnians and Croats. Today it forms a rich cultural tapestry.

The capital city of Sarajevo has a captivating old quarter and a bubbly nightlife, while the surrounding Dinaric Alps offer pristine mountain scenery and excellent hiking, skiing and ecotourism tours. Medugorje is a sacred Christian pilgrimage destination, while Mostar is known for its picturesque historical bridge.
