Outstanding architectural and natural beauty

Bosnia and Herzegovina (abbreviated as BiH) is a treasure trove of architectural and natural beauty. The country where the East meets the West. Through a long and fascinating history, as ancient intersection of Eastern (Byzantine, Slavian, Oriental) and Western (European) culture, it represents a harmonious blend of cultural and natural heritage and is one of the most diverse religious nations in Europe. The circumstances in which on its territory intertwined civilizations, religions (Islam, Orthodoxy, Catholicism and Judaism) and worldviews, determined historical destiny of Bosnia and Herzegovina as a multicultural country with rich traditions and unique historical heritage. BiH is one of the last undiscovered regions of South Eastern Europe. The hilly country is relatively sparsely inhabited. The wide expanses of wilderness and untouched nature (the half of the country is covered by forests) is a paradise for nature lovers and adventurers. Special attractions are, except mountains, numerous canyons and gorges of the river Una, Neretva and wild Tara - river with the deepest canyon in Europe. A visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina provides a truly unique experience.

  • Sarajevo - "European Jerusalem" - unique symbol of multiculturalism
  • Primeval Forest Perucica - one of the last ancient woodlands in Europe
  • Old Bridge (Stari Most) & Old City of Mostar – UNESCO cultural site
  • Medieval tombstones “stećci” - UNESCO heritage
  • Vjetrenica cave - the largest and best known cave in BiH
  • Tara River Canyon - the deepest canyon in Europe
