A trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina which formed after the collapse of Yugoslavia is a fascinating encounter with wildlife, a turbulent history and Balkan culture. In this small country, neighbouring with Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro, you can admire the mountainous landscape, picturesque river valleys and beautiful beaches on the Adriatic.

Most of the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina is taken up by the Dinaric Alps, where rivers have carved deep valleys with vertical walls. Wild fauna and flora and the borderland phenomenon of these regions is a guarantee for a wonderful holiday for all those who yearn for contact with nature. Charming villages blended into the mountainous landscape is, in turn, a great opportunity to get to know the interesting and eclectic culture of this region, customs and traditional cuisine. Bosnia and Herzegovina also has access to the sea, a tiny piece of land on the eastern Adriatic coast, where there is only one resort - Neum. The capital and most interesting city in Bosnia and Herzegovina is Sarajevo. Although the city has suffered severe damage in the war on the Balkans there is a lot to see here. Sarajevo's old town is a maze of narrow streets where numerous monuments stand.

In the second largest city - Banja Luka, you can encounter as many as 40 mosques, a lot of greenery and the wild River Vrbas. Medjugorje, where the famous shrine of the Queen of Peace is located, is the destination of many pilgrims from all over the world. The uniqueness of this part of Europe is also famous for its multicultural character, an unusual blend of Islam, Orthodoxy and Catholicism. The residents of Bosnia and Herzegovina are famous for their sincerity. Family is extremely important to them.
