Bosnia and Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina holidays

Introduction

Fought over for years, the small mountainous country of Bosnia and Herzegovina lies between Croatia and Serbia. A multicultural mix of Christian, Muslim and Orthodox that descended into chaos and conflict during the 1990s, the country is slowly working its way back.

Sarajevo has rebuilt its Turkish Quarter and the countless cafés, colourful bazaars, cobbled streets and rattling trams are bringing the place back to life. Evidence of war is never far away; the Latin Bridge is where Gavrilo Princep shot Archduke Ferdinand to spark World War I.

Many of the monuments and mosques in Mostar have been destroyed but the stunning old bridge, Stari Most, survived and is a testament to the Ottoman ingenuity and Dalmatian masonry that once filled the country.  Elsewhere, discover the Dervish monastery in Balagaj, visit the walled city of Jajce and the natural springs at Travnik, ski the slopes of Mt Jahorina and raft the rapids of the Una River.
