Bosnia-Herzegovina //

Where to go

Most travellers spend their time in the country’s two major draws: Sarajevo and Mostar. Sarajevo has shrugged off its years under siege to become one of Europe’s most likeable capitals, while the delightful city of Mostar is focused on an Old Bridge that, meticulously rebuilt after destruction during the war, must be the most photographed object in the Balkans. There are also some beguiling smaller towns to choose from, such as Bosnia’s Jajce, or Herzegovina’s Blagaj, while outdoor enthusiasts will be in their element in Bihać, one of Europe’s foremost rafting destinations. Trebinje is easily the pick of the towns in the Republika Srpska.
