Bosnia and Herzegovina Tourism | Best Places To Visit In Sarajevo Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina Tourism | Best Places To Visit In Sarajevo Bosnia and Herzegovina.Despite all those rugged mountains, the snow-caked heights of the Dinaric Alps, the beautiful Una River and towns like Mostar and Stolac where Ottoman and Byzantine, Roman and Balkan, Slavic and oodles of other styles all coalesce between the ancient streets, Bosnia and Herzegovina remains a somewhat off-the-beaten-track corner of Europe. Check out this list of the country’s best places to visit, which flits from the wild hinterland to the buzzing, burgeoning capital along the way.
1. Capital Sarajevo
Sarajevo is simply special and, by far, one of the most unique capital cities in Europe. I haven’t met too many people who have visited and didn’t fall in love a little for a number of reasons: the sinfully delicious food, its surrounding mountain scenery, the kindness of the locals, or its unbreakable spirit.
2. Lukomir Mountain Village
Lukomir is a magical mountain village where very traditional Bosnian lifestyle has been fully maintained. It is not as isolated as it used to be due to its increased popularity and the growing number of tour operators offering it as day trip from Sarajevo. For sure, an experience you can’t find in too many other places in Europe anymore.
3. Sutjeska National Park
Wild horses, funky Yugoslav monuments, a primeval forest, great hiking, and the highest peak in Bosnia & Herzegovina…What is not amazing about Sutjeska National Park?
Bisected by the babbling Lasva River as it flows through the central mountains of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the pretty mid-sized town of Travnik does well to balance its interesting past as the capital and stronghold of the erstwhile viziers of this old Ottoman sub-region and modern day adventure sports and outdoorsy draws. The first aspect manifests in a curious array of traditional eastern-style edifices and monuments, two Ottoman clock towers (unique throughout the country) and a handsome 15th-century old town heart.
One of the undisputed jewels of the entire Balkan Peninsula, Mostar oozes Bosnian history from each of its Byzantine cracks, Slavic crevices and Ottoman facades. The piece de resistance has to be the arched Old Bridge that spans the Neretva at the town’s heart, now meticulously reconstructed following destruction in the Croat–Bosniak conflict and a bearer of that coveted UNESCO tag. And all around this masterpiece cast in stone, Mostar layers Dalmatian builds and Franciscan churches, oriental designs and arabesque mosques into one glorious aesthetic
Trebinje, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Trebinje is the city of sun, wine, honey and plane trees, situated on the banks of Trebisnjica river (known as one of the longest of subterranean rivers in the world) under the mountain of Leotar. It is known for its cultural and historical heritage, hospitableness, and its rich and diverse gastronomy. It is located in Republika Srpska, an entity of Bosnia and Herzegovina and in the triangle of World Heritage sites - Dubrovnik (Croatia) 30 km, Kotor (Montenegro) 80 km and Mostar (Bosnia and Herzegovina) 113 km. Owing to its rich history, the main attractions in Trebinje are architectural works from 4th through 16th, 18th, 19th, to beginning of the 20th century, including bridges, churches, monasteries, mosques, etc.
Places to visit in Trebinje: The central square, The local market, Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Cathedral, The Old Town, The Hercegovačka Gračanica monastery, Arslanagića Bridge, Tvrdoš Monastery...

TOP things to do around Mostar Bosnia and Herzegovina
During the summer of 2018 we went on a Euro roadtrip. Our third destination is Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the surrounding towns. Don't forget to check out our previous videos from Hungary - Balaton Lake and Kotor - Montenegro.
First we started at Stolac, which is a town just a few kilometers outside Mostar. We visited the beautiful castle Vidoski.
Afterwards we accidentally found the Dervish House in Blagaj, we actually had no idea what the house was about. It is possible to do a boat tour inside a cave there, we skipped that because we were on our way to the Castle of Herzeg Stjepan Kosaca. Were we enjoyed a beautiful sunset.
On Day 2 we visited Mostar were the annual bridge jumping contest was taking place, nice experience but the town was mostly closed because of the contest. As it was super hot that day we tried to find some cooling down more outside the city centre and we checked the old sniper tower there. Cool experience.

MOSTAR - Bosnia & Herzegovina Travel Guide | Around The World
Mostar is a city and municipality in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina. Inhabited by 105,797 people, it is the most important city in the Herzegovina region, its cultural capital, and the center of the Herzegovina-Neretva Canton of the Federation. Mostar is situated on the Neretva River and is the fifth-largest city in the country. Mostar was named after the bridge keepers (mostari) who in the medieval times guarded the Stari Most (Old Bridge) over the Neretva. The Old Bridge, built by the Ottomans in the 16th century, is one of Bosnia and Herzegovina's most recognizable landmarks, and is considered one of the most exemplary pieces of Islamic architecture in the Balkans.
Mostar is an important tourist destination in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mostar International Airport serves the city as well as the railway and bus stations which connect it to a number of national and international destinations. Mostar's old town is an important tourist destination with the Stari Most being its most recognizable feature.
Some noteworthy sites include Bishop’s Ordinariate building, the remains of an early Christian basilica at Cim, a hamam (Ottoman public bath), clock tower (sahat-kula), Synagogue (1889) and Jewish Memorial Cemetery, Nesuh-aga Vučjaković Mosque, Hadži-Kurt Mosque or Tabačica, Metropolitan's Palace (1908), Karagöz Bey Mosque (1557), Orthodox Church, Catholic Church and Franciscan Monastery, Ottoman Residences (16th–19th century), Crooked Bridge, Tara and Halebija Towers.
The World War II Partisan cemetery in Mostar, designed by the architect Bogdan Bogdanović, is another important symbol of the city. Its sacrosanct quality is derived from the unity of nature (water and greenery) with the architectural expression of the designer; the monument was inscribed on the list of National Monuments in 2006.
The Catholic pilgrimage site of Međugorje is also nearby as well as the Tekija Dervish Monastery in Blagaj, 13th-century town of Počitelj, Blagaj Fort (Stjepan-grad), Kravice Falls, seaside town of Neum, Roman villa rustica from the early fourth century Mogorjelo, Stolac with its stećak necropolis and the remains of an ancient Greek town of Daorson. Nearby sites also include the nature park called Hutovo Blato, archeological site Desilo, Lake Boračko as well as Vjetrenica cave, the largest and most important cave in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Mostar cuisine is balanced between Western and Eastern influences. Traditional Mostar food is closely related to Turkish, Middle Eastern and other Mediterranean cuisines. However, due to years of Austrian rule and influence, there are also many culinary influences from Central Europe. Some of the dishes include ćevapčići, burek, sarma, japrak, musaka, dolma, sujuk, sač, đuveč, and sataraš. Local desserts include baklava, hurmašice, sutlijaš, tulumbe, tufahije, and šampita.

Herzegovina (Hercegovina / Херцеговина) is the southern region of Bosnia and Herzegovina. While there is no official border distinguishing it from the Bosnian region, it is generally accepted that the borders of the region are Croatia to the southwest, Montenegro to the east, Mount Maglić to the northeast, and Mount Ivan to the north. Measurements of the area range from 11,419 km2 (4,409 sq mi), or around 22% of the total area of the present-day country.
The name Herzegovina means duke's land, referring to the medieval duchy of Stjepan Vukčić Kosača who took the title Herceg of Saint Sava. Herceg is derived from the German title Herzog.
In the modern Bosnian-Herzegovinian state, Herzegovina is divided between two entities, Republic of Srpska and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Republic of Srpska's part of Herzegovina, commonly referred to as East Herzegovina or, as of late, Trebinje Region, is administratively divided into municipalities of Trebinje, Bileća, Gacko, Nevesinje, Ljubinje, Berkovići, Istočni Mostar and Foča. Within the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Herzegovina is administratively divided between the cantons of Herzegovina-Neretva, West Herzegovina and includes the Livno and Tomislavgrad municipalities, which is part of the Canton 10.
Mostar is the best known and the unofficial capital. It is also the only city with over 100,000 citizens. There are no other large cities in Herzegovina, though some have illustrious histories. Stolac, for example, is perhaps the oldest city in Herzegovina. There have been settlements dating from the Paleolithic period (Badanj cave). An Illyrian tribe lived in the city of Daorson. There were several Roman settlements alongside the Bregava River and medieval inhabitants left large and beautiful stone grave monuments called stećak in Radimlja. Trebinje, on the Trebišnjica River, is the southernmost city in Bosnia and Herzegovina, near the border with Montenegro. Čapljina and Ljubuški are known for their history and their rivers; the village of Međugorje has religious importance for many Croats and Catholics.

In this episode David spends a morning exploring the charming medieval town of Pocitelj (PoÄitelj) in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The town itself dates back to 1444, but the height of its power was during the Ottoman occupation. The Ottomans were in eastern Europe for over 400 years!
Traces of their past can still be seen today, from the cobblestone streets they constructed to the beautiful minarets that watch over the town. Pocitelj is located on the wine road from Mostar to Neum, so it makes a perfect day trip from either one. You could even do a day trip to Pocitelj from Dubrovnik.
Things to see in medieval Pocitelj include exploring the ruins of the fortress and its walls, the Sisman Ibrahim Pasa mosque, the clock tower, and strolling the quaint cobblestone streets. Also take the time to admire the unique architecture of the local houses, which blends Asian and Mediterranean elements, common in classic Turkish architecture. The views of the Neretva River below are stunning.

Tekija in Blagaj: Mysterious building on Buna which attracts tourists from all over the world
Blagaj is an old town built at the time of the Roman Empire. It was not then a town, but a fortress, and in time it developed into a real pearl of Herzegovina. The greatest attention is drawn to the source of Buna, which, as many say, is the most mysterious building - Tekija. In the video footage, see how magically the air of this part of Blagaj looks like.
During the time of Osmanlija Blagaj was the seat of the Blagaj vilayet, then cadillac and divided into several mahala, among which were Carska, Hasanagina, Bunska and Galičići. The city had seven mosques, two chimneys, four musafirhans, a medrese, two mektebs, tekes, four stone bridges on the river Buna, one on Bunica and two on the pits of Posrt, kiraethanu and seven mills with 28 mills.
In the area around today's Stjepan Town, as formerly called Old Town Blagaj, numerous remains were found in the prehistoric, Illyrian, Roman, Byzantine and Medieval Period, and Konstantin Porfirogenit mentions Bona in his records as part of Zahumlja. The main contribution to the development of today's Blagaj area was the proximity of the main trade routes connecting the Adriatic Sea with the hinterland of Bosnia's Neretva Valley (via Narenti).
The most important part of Blagaj, known to tourists around the world, is Tekija at the Buna River, which represents a significant cultural monument from the early Turkish era in BiH. This is the place where, with special rituals, dervishes performed and still perform zikir (glory to God) today.
The source of the River Buna is one of the largest and most prosperous sources in Europe and probably the best example of the underground karst river. Buna stands out from the cave under a 200-meter-high rock and creates a dark blue-emerald green river that runs about nine miles west and flows into the Neretva near the village of Buna.
The Turkish sultan was, enthusiastically, thrilled with Bun, and ordered that a tekytium be found close to its source. The 16th century art was built for the needs of Derviska kulta and the gathering of the Sufi Dervish fraternity, and served as a dormitory for Sufi travelers. The Oriental Bosnian architecture of Blessed Blessing attracts its whitewashed double façade, the first floor and the extended room that faces the balcony, whose contours reflect the surface of the dark green waters of the River Buna.
Tekija in Blagaj is still one of the most ancient places in BiH, because the dervish-Sufi fraternity is best known for its asceticism as well as being preached by one of the most mystical dimensions of Islam. Tekija on Buna in Blagava is open for visitors throughout the year and in its beautiful garden, with magnificent views of the Bune source, are refreshing drinks, tea and Turkish coffee.
