Discover - Bosnia

Bosnia is a fitting location for Muslim travellers and best visited in summer to enjoy the clear skies along the Adriatic coastline. The modern history sheds a dark shadow of it's past, however, today Bosnia is a destination that is home to beautiful landscapes and unique culture. Bosnia is a year-round destination and visiting in October, you can experience Bosnia’s ski season in the Jahorina Mountains.

 

Sarajevo is Bosnia’s cosmopolitan capital welcomes the Adhan, followed by the sound of church bells and calls to prayer echoing just streets apart. In its capital lies a church, Mosque and Synagogue all walking distance of each other, an accurate reflection of the city’s diverse and inclusive nature. Using Sarajevo as your base, head to the beautiful cities of Mostar and it's iconic bridge, Srebrenica with its sombre history or the natural beauty of the Kravice waterfall.

Highlights

The cultural heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina is less likely to be experienced in a museum but rather in what they coin as ‘living museums.’ The customs and pastimes are best found in everyday life where you can catch a glimpse of old and new world Europe – preserving their ancient past.

 
Bosnia and Herzegovina are not only blessed with a great abundance of crystal clear mountain rivers but high-quality thermal springs as well. Bosnia is heavily investing in modernizing its thermal spa facilities to offer our guests top quality spas services for only a fraction of the price of our other European neighbours. With full service facilities available in more than 15 locations there is always a relaxing spot for a massage or full range thermal treatment. Terme in Sarajevo is an ideal location, near both the city center and the Bjelasnica/Igman ski center. The spas in Teslic, Fojnica and Banja Luka also offer spas services with modern facilities and are all located in beautiful natural surroundings.
