I bet Bosnia and Herzegovina, or anywhere in the Balkans has never been in your vacation plans, while this may not be a beach rich Bahamas or blue sea paradise in the pacific, the following article on the cost of vacation in Bosnia and Herzegovina will change your mind. Read On.

Vacation in Bosnia

Bosnia, and Herzegovina were part of the former Yugoslavia and are located on the Balkan Peninsula in Europe. The country gained its independence in 1992 but a brutal civil war followed between the Serbs, Bosniaks, and Croatians.

Signs of the war are still quite evident today all over the country. Despite its brutal past, Bosnia has overcome and developed into a thriving country.

Bosnian Muslims, or Bosniaks, once represented the nationality of the region, but the idea of ethnic unity in the area is growing, and diversity is more welcome today.

In addition to its rich and fascinating cultures, the country has stunningly beautiful landscapes in the form of mountains and green rivers.

There are countless opportunities to experience the outdoors here, either through rafting, kayaking or hiking. Bosnia is also a great country to visit if you’re hoping to take part in some winter sports. Sarajevo hosted the Winter Olympics in 1984.

The country is divided into several different regions, with the most frequently visited being the Sarajevo Region. The capital city is a popular destination for its rich culture, traditional old town, and historic nature.

Herzegovina, to the south, is traditionally inhabited by the Croats and is a popular destination because of the famed Mostar Bridge.

The landscape in the area is also quite beautiful, so if you have time to visit other parts of the region, definitely do.

Other regions include the Bosanska Krajina to the northwest, Posavina which follows the Sava River, and the northeast and central parts of the country.

Traveling around Bosnia is best done by bus. There’s a very good bus system that will take you almost anywhere in the country.

The trains are another option, but many are quite old and slow. The tracks have also been heavily damaged so there is a frequent disruption in the service.

Highlights of Bosnia and Herzegovina

Highlights of Bosnia and Herzegovina

  • There is still a threat of landmines throughout most of Bosnia. If you’re driving in the area it is best to remain on paved roads. If you’re hiking, stay on marked trails that are well frequented. When in doubt, ask a local and they will likely be informed on the area. Generally, stay away from areas where you know there is a concern for landmines and you should be okay.
  • It is very easy to travel to Bosnia by bus from nearby countries. Most buses will drop you off at the main bus station in Sarajevo. There are frequent buses from the more popular destinations including Dubrovnik, Zagreb, Belgrade, Rijeka, and Pula, among others. The buses are usually modern coaches that are in good condition. Breakdowns are rare.
  • Hitchhiking is an option in Bosnia, but like elsewhere, do stay hyper-vigilant regarding your safety. It’s a great way to meet locals who you are unlikely to interact with otherwise. Also, stay aware of the landmine threat and make sure your vehicle does not leave the paved road. Generally, you don’t have to wait long to find a ride, but along less popular routes it can be a challenge.
  • It is best to exchange your money within the country or withdraw cash from an ATM, as this will likely give you the best exchange rate. There are many different cash exchange venues in larger cities. Also, make sure you exchange all of your konvertibilna marka back to euros or dollars before leaving the country. If you don’t, you’re unlikely to find anybody outside of the country who will change the money for you.
  • Many people enjoy shopping in Bosnia as there are many local items that make interesting souvenirs. There are some great larger shopping malls around where you can get typical, western clothes and items, but if you’re looking for something that is locally made, head to the markets and old towns. There are many different crafts, fabrics, and kitchen goods available. Prices are usually negotiable so you can have fun trying to haggle with the shopkeeper as well.

Konjic is a pleasant town, a home of Stara Cuprija, a well-preserved Ottoman-era Old Bridge.
Hidden in its hills is one of the best-kept military secrets in Yugoslav history, Tito’s 6,500 square meters nuclear bunker, ARK D-0, now open for tours.

2. Blagaj

Blagaj, located in Mostar’s backyard just 8 kilometers away, is one of the most photographed spots in the country and it isn’t hard to see why.

With fresh-water flowing out from the spring of the Buna river in all different shades of cyan, and a wonderfully preserved and still functioning tekke, it is an enchanting little spot to have a Bosnian coffee or lunch.

3.  Počitelj

Pretty, pretty Počitelj is another Ottoman-era gem with a medieval twist that is popular among artists, good for a quick wander through the old town or climbing up into its fortress which overlooks the Neretva River.

4. Višegrad

Visegrad is a place for Balkan history/culture buffs as this is where the infamous Mehmed Paša Sokolović Bridge sits on the Drina River.

Its claim to international fame is as the focal point in Ivo Andric’s Nobel Prize-winning chronicle “The Bridge on the Drina”.

5. Una National Park

Una National Park hugs the country’s western border with Croatia, near the town of Bihac. Biking, hiking, and rafting are all on the menu.

Whatever you do, do not miss its main attraction: the largest waterfall on the Una River, Štrbački Buk.
