    Day 1: Arrival to Sarajevo and a short welcome sightseeing tour

     

    Arrival to Sarajevo, pick up from the airport, check-in at the hotel, short rest, then tour in the Old City, Bascarsija, the central and the most popular tourist area of  Sarajevo, called 'the heart' of Sarajevo since its beginnings. A unique combination of the Ottoman and the Austro-Hungarian architectural styles is what makes this part of Sarajevo so captivating.  Visit to the recently re-opened, Vijećnica, Sarajevo's city hall, which hosts national library (depends on the arrival time). Vijećnica was built during the Austro-Hungarian period (19th century) and has been considered as one of the most representative of Sarajevo's buildings. In August 1992, it was destroyed by a heavy shelling and 22 years later, after a careful restoration, it opened its door to visitors. Visit to the Latin Bridge, a place where the assassination of Duke Ferdinand occurred, an event that many consider as a trigger of WWI. Also planned is a visit to Coppersmith Street, Sebilj fountain, Gazi Husrev Bey Mosque and Bezistan, Farhadiya Street.

    Overnight stay at the hotel in Sarajevo.

     

    Day 2: Enchanting heights

     

    After breakfast, visit to a beautiful and idyllic picnic place – the spring of the river Bosna (Vrelo Bosne) – visited by many tourists and Bosnians. After seeing many crystal clear streams and little waterfalls, there will be an opportunity to take horse carriage through the 3,5 kilometres long tree avenue. Later on, we plan to visit Tunnel of Hope, a war museum that witnessed the strength and struggle of Bosnian people in the last war

    Prepare for the amazing view from the mount Trebevic, just 20 minutes away from Sarajevo. You may try the alpine coaster or simply enjoy your coffee with the best view on the capital.

    Overnight in Sarajevo.

     

    Day 3: Heart of Bosnia: Travnik and Jajce

     

    After breakfast, visit to Jajce, the medieval city of Bosnian kings. We will visit the impressive ‘natural’ monument: 22 meter high Pliva waterfall! Being one of the twelve most beautiful waterfalls in the world, its other distinctiveness comes from its location - the middle of the town. Visit to the beautiful Pliva lake and watermills will leave you speechless.

    On the way back to Sarajevo, we will visit Travnik, the medieval city, once capital of Bosnia. We will visit Travnik fortress, Blue Water area with restaurants and the Islamic high school that dates back to the Ottoman period.  Visit to the mount Vlasic and overnight in a hotel.

    Day 4 Herzegovina Tour: Pocitelj, Blagaj and Mostar

    After breakfast, first stop is the beatuful waterfall Kravice. Afdfter that there wil be a stop in the old town of Pocitelj which walls and the view will amaze you for sure. The historical town of Počitelj, built under the fortress (built 1383.), has an oriental style and as such is completely in the function of tourism and cultural events.

    Lunch break will take place in yet another historical and natural phenomenon – Blagaj – and the spring of river Buna, under the rocky hill, said to be ‘one of the finest examples of an underground karst river’. The exact depth of the emerald coloured spring is still unknown, and, on the bank of the river, you will find a beautiful Darwish, Sufi house, built around 1520. This truly stunning place is one of the most visited places in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    Final place to visit on the day will be the beautiful city of Mostar which is another UNESCO World Heritage-listed city. Mostar is famous for its Old Bridge and the Old City, built during the Ottoman period. Mostar is the biggest city in Herzegovina with unprecedented charm. Overnight in Mostar.

     

    Day 5: Konjic and back to Sarajevo

     

    After breakfast, we go back to the capital. On the way we will have a stop in Konjic. Konjic is one of the oldest permanent settlements in Bosnia, going back almost 4000 years. It is completely surrounded by mountains with an exceptional natural beauty. One of the not-to-be-missed attractions is the Stone Bridge, Ćuprija, built in 1682. It was destroyed during World War II, but was rebuilt in 2009. Since the early 1900s, Konjic has come to be known for its woodcarvers.
