  • Heritage tour
  • This tour of Bosnia and Herzegovina's towns and places of natural beauty will offer the spectacular scenic views and you will be charmed by its Medieval, Ottoman, Roman and Austro-Hungarian architecture. Be ready to hear the muezzins' call to prayer from many of the neighbouring mosques' minarets and have a cup (or two) of strong Bosnian coffee in one of many cafes. Sarajevo is unlike any other capital in Europe, often called – ‘European Jerusalem’ – it is the city where you can find ancient mosques, synagogues, Orthodox and Catholic cathedrals within walking distance of each other.

    A unique chance to visit the heart shaped country with a rich culture, history and stunning nature. As an exciting alternative to the typical 'package tour', this will be a moderately active holiday where you will be able to see many interesting parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina. 

    In March 2012, Sarajevo won travel blog Foxnomad's "Best City to Visit" competition, beating out more than one hundred cities around the entire world. One of the travel writers observes: ‘Despite the fact that it is not a great power, neither politically nor economically, Bosnia and Herzegovina is a true natural superpower, glittering with all the wonders that man and nature have created here’.
    We tried our very best to design an itinerary which will allow you to enjoy and experience Bosnia and Herzegovina in comfort whilst having a truly memorable time. 


    Day 1: Arrival to Sarajevo and a short welcome sightseeing tour (click on text in blue for more information)



    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, there will be a tour to the protected landscape, Bijambare, which will include the visit to the famous Middle cave, one of the few caves open for visitors in Bosnia  & Herzegovina. You will surely enjoy the nature in this resort, but that is not all. 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: Herzegovina Tour: Konjic, Pocitelj, Blagaj and Mostar


    Breakfast in the hotel, and then we will head to the southern part of the country - Herzegovina. 

    Konjic: The largest river in the region, Neretva, will follow us with its beautiful turquoise color all the way from 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. 

    PociteljThis pretty historical town was built in 1383, on a rocky cliff, under the fortress, sloping steeply down to the bank of the river NeretvaHajji Alija's mosque is one of the finest achievements of the classical Ottoman architectural style and was built in 16th century. With its distinctive architecture, Pocitelj is completely in the function of tourism and cultural events; it is a UNESCO world heritage site.

    Blagaj: 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 colored 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.

    Mostar: A 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. Back to Sarajevo and the overnight stay.


    Day 4: A walk through time and nature: Springs of the river Bosna, Tunnel of Hope, Olympic mountain Igman and trekking to the mosque in the forest.

     

    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 kilometers 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. 

    After that, visit to the mountain Igman and trekking to the Igman wooden mosque built in the middle of the forest during the war. The trekking tour will be lead by the professional trekking coaches. 

    Finally, if there is enough time (and energy!), you will be able to visit another Olympic mountain, Bjelasnica, for free activities, lunch, fresh air and beautiful landscape. Overnight stay in Sarajevo.

     

    Day 5: Heart of Bosnia: Travnik and Jajce


     

    Jajce: After breakfast, visit to Jajce, the medieval city of Bosnian kings. It is about 2,5 hours away from Sarajevo. We will visit the impressive ‘natural’ monument: 22 meters 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.We also will visit the Old watermills and drive through the Plivsko lake which is surrounded by beautiful green hills. 

    Travnik: On the way back to Sarajevo, we will visit Travnik, the medieval city, once a 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.  Return for the overnight in Sarajevo.
