Bosnia and Herzegovina, with its recently turbulent past, offers a fascinating destination for visitors who want an unconventional vacation, and the natural beauties of this small country have often brought it to the pages of the most respected tourist magazines around the world.

Cheap accommodation, food and intercity transport combined with cultural and historical treasures, a favorable adrenaline offer are great for anyone who wants to travel well and not spend too much money. From great old mosques and monuments to amphitheaters and Catholic shrines, you can find plenty of wonderful historical sites to visit. Perhaps the most wonderful is the renovated bridge in Mostar, reopened to the public, and a walk across it encourages hope for new beginnings.

The landscape varies from forests and mountains to hills and short Adriatic coast. Fantastic waterfalls worthy of the Amazon rainforest, heart-shaped islands, wild horses cruising the fields - are just part of the attractive tourist offer of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Here you'll find the Perućica Nature Reserve - the best-preserved and largest rainforest in Europe with eight glacial lakes on Zelengora - "mountain eyes", and there are also the impressive canyons of Sutjeska, Hrčavka and Jabučnica.

Heart-shaped, Bosnia and Herzegovina is located in the center of Southeast Europe and is literally a meeting place of Eastern and Western civilizations. Like many Eastern European countries, Bosnia and Herzegovina still has elements of the communist past in its culture and infrastructure. Just like many of its neighbors, the country is known for its very open and hospitable population.

The capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina is also called "European Jerusalem", because of the connection between East and West that is felt in it, modern and traditional. It is located in a valley surrounded by the Olympic mountains Bjelasnica, Igman, Jahorina and Trebevic, which can be reached by cable car, one of the biggest attractions of the city. Numerous other cities like Mostar, Banja Luka,Tuzla, Jajce, Bihać and many more are treasuring their architectural and natural gems, so don't miss out on some of the unique attractions they offer.

The climate of Bosnia and Herzegovina is as diverse as its landscape. Generally speaking, the southern part of Bosnia enjoys the climate of southern Europe with long, warm summers and mild winters, while the mountains spend most of the year under a thick blanket of snow and ice.

Mountains, rivers, lakes, the sea; this beautiful country in the heart of the Balkans has something to offer for everyone.
