12 Sep Bosnia and Hercegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina, country situated in the western Balkan Peninsula of Europe. The national capital of the country is Sarajevo has a well preserved old quarter, Baščaršija, with landmarks like 16th-century Gazi Husrev-bey Mosque. Ottoman-era Latin Bridge is the site of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, which ignited World War I. Important regional cities include Mostar and Banja Luka. Mostar has long been known for its old Turkish houses and Old Bridge, Stari Most, after which it is named. The Old Bridge was recently rebuilt and many of the edifices in the Old Town have been restored or rebuilt with the contribution of an international scientific committee established by UNESCO. The Old Bridge area, with its pre-Ottoman, eastern Ottoman, Mediterranean and western European architectural features, is an outstanding example of a multicultural urban settlement. Since 1998 Banja Luka has been what’s probably Europe’s least-known ‘capital’ (of the Republika Srpska). The city is lively more than lovely but it’s a useful transport hub if you’re planning rafting, canyoning or other adventure sports in the surrounding countryside. Bosnia and Herzegovina has a largely mountainous terrain. The Dinaric Alps dominate the western border with Croatia. The most famous is a Olympic mountain Jahorina, located near Pale in the Dinaric Alps. If you want to enjoy snow and all what comes with it, this is the place you want to go. From long ski tracks to the kilometres of alpine walking paths, great restaurants, beautiful hotels, coffee shops, bars, night clubs and other, to long sleeps, weekend getaways in nature, it’s all here. Bosnia and Herzegovina is also rich in natural springs, many of which are tapped for bottled mineral water or for popular thermal health spas.
