“Some cities amaze us, other places we fall in love with for their sheer natural beauty, and then there are countries like this, where I couldn’t even tell you one single thing I don’t like about it, let alone all the reasons to visit Bosnia and Herzegovina.From lakes that look photoshopped to grand architecture rising up hills, turbulent and tragic history to some of the most welcoming people you will meet; Bosnia and Herzegovina is a confusing yet captivating country.”

Welcome to Bosnia!
Heart of Bosnia - Travnik & Jajce
All green, again
Visit to the city of Pocitelj. This pretty historical town was built in 1383, on a rocky cliff, under the fortress, sloping steeply down to the bank of the river Neretva. Hajji 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.
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.
Overnight in Mostar.
Dubrovnik, at last!
Get ready to cross some borders. We are going to Dubrovnik.
Having used its exceptional diplomatic art, Dubrovnik has succeeded to remain the road junction between the east and west, north and south through all these centuries. Today, it has become one of the world centres of tourists from all continents, where people of various profiles from all over the world gladly meet: artists, diplomats, scientists, various experts of all possible professions and trades. It is new Dubrovnik, proud of its tradition and its entire cultural and historical heritage, proud and haughty of its present days, and especially proud of the friendship with all people and citizens coming from all over the world.The entire city is turned towards the sun and the sea, blazing with rich colours of the blossoming gardens and hot roofs, as if it were floating on the wide-open sea, accompanied by a proud escort of the eternally green islands and small isles. There are more than 155 miles (250 km) of this coast, full of contrasting beauty and the flourishing vegetation of the South Adriatic.
This just an excerpt, because you will hear a lot about the city by our local guide.
Now, back to Sarajevo.
Shopping and more
This day is for your entertainment.
You will be able to shop in the most popular centres in Sarajevo, as well as in the local small shops. Our guide will be at your service as usual.

The gallery of the bezistan houses exhibits from the Ottoman period (including the most expensive equipment of an Ottoman warrior) and the Austro-Hungarian period.

More about this tour
Sarajevo is beautiful. The city is tucked inside a long, thin valley and surrounded on all sides by forested mountains, and almost every crossroads and street corner provides at least a glimpse of an idyllic picture-postcard backdrop. During the worst moments in the city’s history, when its inhabitants were targeted by snipers, this dramatic geography proved to be a terrifying drawback but, thankfully, the spectacular natural beauty of Sarajevo can again be admired and enjoyed.The best way to do this is to find the highest vantage point possible, and with the recent reopening of Sarajevo’s iconic cable car, a trip up the mountainside has, once again, been made easy. A short walk from Baščaršija brings you to the shiny new cable car station in the foothills of Mount Trebević, one of the peaks which played host to events in the 1984 Winter Olympics. For a return fee of 20 Bosnian marks (approximately £10), this must-do cable car lifts you more than 1,100m in seven minutes, providing breathtaking views every second of the way. At the top, the perspective shifts and changes like a kaleidoscope. In the short space of time that I was on the mountain, I saw the cityscape swelter beneath me under a clear blue sky and then quickly become obscured by twirling strands of mist that seemed to appear from nowhere.It’s a view which defies comparison with most other European cities. Mosques and minarets decorate the skyline along with the Romanesque towers of Catholic churches and the onion-shaped domes of Orthodox ones. And that is another thing which makes this city so fascinating: it’s a place where east and west meet. On the main pedestrian thoroughfare, Ferhadija, this cultural equator is marked for posterity on the pavement and a sign encourages visitors to take a photo looking first one way up the street and then the other.
