Sarajevo's Bascarsija (Old Town)
The Old Town 'Bascarsija' may be hard to pronounce but it is certainly one of the most impressive and charming market centers in the country.
Bascarsija has been a trading and meeting place since the 15th century as caravans from Asia minor, Dubrovnik and the West met here to trade their wares.
Mostars's Stari Most (Old Bridge)
The old bridge is perhaps the finest example of Ottoman heritage in western Balkans.
Not only does this precious stone structure bridge the east and west banks of the emerald Neretva River, it also symbolizes the crossroads of Eastern and Western civilizations.
Neum - the sunny Adriatic
Although its only a tiny strip of the gorgeous Adriatic, Neum has become a major seaside resort. Ideally located between Split and Dubrovnik and just a short distance to Mostar and Medugorje, Neum is an inexpensive holiday spot for fun and the sun.
Sutjeska National Park
Locally famous for the great battle of WWII when the partisans defeated a massive German army, this park is also home to one of Europe's last remaining primeval forests in Perucica. Also home to Bosnia's highest peak (Maglic Mt. 2,386 m), it is a paradise for hikers, walkers and nature lovers.
The XIV Winter Olympics are long gone but the slopes still remain and so does olympic style skiing. Jahorina has made a great comeback as Southeastern Europe's best ski resort. Great skiing. Great accommodation. Great fun. All just a short ride from the capital Sarajevo.
This Olympic mountain is also making a steady comeback. It was the site of the men’s slalom and is by far the most challenging ski trails in the country. Off the beaten track are ideal spots for cross country and tour skiing, as well as year round hiking, biking and village tourism in the ancient highland villages.
Famous for its Nobel Laureate writer Ivo Andric this Ottoman town still best represents what was once called the European Istanbul. This ancient mosques and fortress that dot the skyline are as impressive as the original style Bosnian architecture that gives this town its charm. Not far from Travnik is the mountain Ski Resort of Vlasic - a paradise for snowboarders and a great nature break spot.
The Trebizat River creates a wonderful green belt amidst the dry landscape of Western Herzegovina. This stunning waterfall runs over 100 meters long and drops an impressive 25 meters. Kravica is an ideal place for a picnic or a swim and definitely provides one of the most picturesque sceneries in Herzegovina.
Počitelj is a town in the Čapljina municipality, Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The historic site of Počitelj is located on the left bank of the river Neretva, on the main Mostar to Metković road and it is to the south of Mostar. During the Middle Ages, Počitelj was considered the administrative centre and centre of governance of Dubrava župa (county), while its westernmost point gave it major strategic importance.
Jajce was first built in the 14th century and served as the capital of the independent Bosnian kingdom during its time. The town has gates as fortifications, as well as a castle with walls which lead to the various gates around the town.
This river, by many the most beautiful river in the entire country, is cherished by each community that has formed along her 207 kilometers. The Una is to the Krajina what the Neretva is to Herzegovina – life, and the life-giving forces of the Una have been revered throughout this region's history.
Blagaj - Buna
It is the finest example of an underground karst river. It flows out of a 200m cliff wall and single-handedly creates the Buna River. Unsurprisingly, the Ottoman sultan was impressed, and ordered a tekija to be built right next to it.
Balkana is one of the Krajina region pik nik sites (often called the Krajina beauty). It is situated 4 km from Mrkonjić grad city in Bosnia. Balkana is consisted of 2 lakes (Small and Big lake), and located in the valley of Lisina mountain. The surroundings are beautiful and there is a good touristic infrastructure with restaurants, bungalows etc. Swimming, sunbathing, fishing during the summer and skiing, hiking during the winter are the best acitivities for this region.
