In this episode David takes us to the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina to discover Sarajevo’s sights, sounds, and tastes. Sarajevo is a bustling capital with several historical, cultural and gastronomic stops to experience.

David starts off in the city center where he meets up with his local guide Raza to begin the tour. The best place to start is the Eternal Flame, located in the city center. It has burned continuously since 1946 except during the Bosnian War 1992-1995. It is on display for everyone to see.

David and Raza then take a walk along Ferhadija, Sarajevo’s main pedestrian street that links the two different parts of the city – the 19th century buildings dating back to the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Medieval district dating back to Ottoman occupation. In the mix there are also several communist-era buildings when Bosnia existed as a republic in the Social Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Yugoslavia, for short).

At the point when Ferhadija Street meets the Ottoman quarter, there is line on the floor that shows the split. All along Ferhadija Street there are shops, restaurants, cafés, and banks. It is also where the Eternal Flame is located.

Before Raza and David head into Bascarsija (Ottoman district), they make a quick stop at the square of the Sacred Heart Cathedral. In Bascarsija they visit the Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque, which was built 1530. Afterwards, Raza shows David the different ways to drink a traditional Bosnian coffee at a local Kafana. After fueling up, David stops by Sebilj fountain to have a sip of water. Legend has it that anyone who drinks from the fountain will return to Sarajevo, so we’ll see if David makes his way back one day to experience more of what to see and eat in Sarajevo!

Now time for a little souvenir shopping down Coppersmith Street. Raza shows David the most typical gift one could buy here – a copper coffee pot used to serve Bosnian coffee. All this walking around made them work up quite an appetite, so they head to a bakery to try some delicious pies (cheese, spinach, and meat). The pies are baked over a coal oven and are the perfect fast food. They are also very inexpensive.

Next thing David tries is cevapi (pronounced che-vap-ee), which is pretty much the unofficial national dish of the country. Day 2 takes David and Raza to see the city from a magnificent lookout point, Zuta Tabija, or “yellow fortress.” David recommends driving or taking a taxi there because the climb to the top is quite steep. From here you can see the center of the city and the rolling green hills in the background (in case you didn’t know, Bosnia is one of Europe’s most lush and verdant countries).

After quickly seeing Emperor’s Mosque, Raza takes David to see the exact spot where Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife Sophie, were assassinated on June 28, 1914. At the time David visited (2014) it was the 100th year anniversary of their untimely deaths. The assassination triggered the start of the First World War. After revisiting such a pivotal point in European history, David gets curious to see where all the bread he’s been eating comes from so Raza takes him to a nearby bakery, Pekara Alifakovac. They specialize in Somun bread, which is what is served with cevapi. This family-owned bakery churns out hundreds of Somun breads each day, and they have a pick-up window for customers on the go. It’s very hot inside but the experience was well worth it, especially since they allowed David to eat a piece of freshly baked bread.

Last but not least, David heads outside of the city center to visit one of the most culturally significant places in Bosnia, the Sarajevo Tunnel or Tunnel of Hope. Visitors can now see a portion of a tunnel that allowed Bosnians to smuggle in weapons and supplies during the Siege of Sarajevo (May 1992 through November 1995).

And there you have it, a brief intro about what to see and eat in Sarajevo. We hoped you liked it!

Bosnia & Herzegovina - Land of Wonders

Bosnia-Herzegovina is a place to discover. After two weeks of traveling in the country, I realized that Bosnia-Herzegovina is much more than a former Yugoslav Republic, dating its history back to the 12th century. The combination of overwhelming natural attractions and warm, hospitable people make Bosnia-Herzegovina quite an interesting place to visit and explore. The different religious creeds and social mixture give another point of interest to this country from the cultural and sociologic standpoints. Don’t miss the impressive waterfalls in Jajce and Kravice and enjoy the cosmopolitan ambience of Mostar and Sarajevo. History and modern life; art, religion and culture; you will find it all in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Take your time to enjoy and learn a bit more about this Balkan country, definitely a land of wonders.

Bosnia was more amazing than I anticipated and after spending a little over a week in the country, I fell in love. From right off of the Croatian ferry in Ploce, my hitchhiking journey in Bosnia officially began. My driver wanted to stop in Medugorje so why not join. It's a small village where 6 children had claimed to see an apparition of the Virgin Mary. What was a small town is now a big tourist attraction and religious site.

After getting dropped off in Mostar I roamed around the city famous for it's Ottoman Bridge, Stari Most. Originally built 400 years, it was destroyed in 1993, But fortunately rebuilt in 2004 looking just as beautiful as the original. Mostar saw much destruction during the war which in some places, can be seen today. But most of the city has been rebuilt bringing tourists from all over the world. Additional places to see in the area, is Blagaj Tekke, an old Dervish monastery sitting besides a spring and within a mountain side as well as a fortress above of the same name with amazing views of the valley and mountains.

Hitchhiking north brought me through the
gorgeous Dinaric mountains. I stopped in the small town of Jablanica to see a bridge destroyed in WW2 by the Yugoslav partisan led by Tito that helped deter attacks from the Axis powers. My next stop was an overnight stay on Jablanica lake in one of my favorite Airbnb's to date in camper turned bedroom with a small kitchen. Here I had a rowboat to use with the lake all to myself, listening to good music on my phone and taking it all in.

From here, I hitched a ride to Konjic, a small town with more locals than tourists, a beautiful Ottoman bridge and an awesome host who took me into his home offering a local homemade drink. My final city was Bosnia's capital, Sarajevo.

Sarajevo saw it's share of dark days during the Bosnian War, with sniper fire and mortar shelling killing many people. I stopped at the Markale Market where twice, mortar shells killed and injured many people. As well as one of many cemeteries where I lost my emotions due to all of the tombstones that stand. But the city has progressed as a modern city with a beautiful city center with many cafes, a bazaar, commercial city center, and lots of tourism. I also managed to stand in the very spot where Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated igniting WW1.

To wrap up my time in Bosnia, I made it priority to go up to several viewpoints in the hills and mountains. Yellow Bastion and the historic now abandoned White Fortress overlooking the city and beyond. The best views are from Trebević where you can walk up the abandoned luge track from the 1984 Winter Olympics up to the view over the whole city.

After an incredible voyage in Bosnia, I returned to Croatia for the third and final time to Dubrovnik. :)

10 Things to do in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina Travel Guide Video Transcript: (Мостар)

Welcome to Mostar! In today’s video we’re showing you around one of the great gems of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mostar was one of the many stops of our travels through the Balkans, but it ranked right at the very top! This city is as postcard-perfect as they come, complete with Ottoman constructions, soaring minarets, and colourful buildings that overlook the emerald waters of the Neretva River. Our time here was spent wandering through the markets, sampling local dishes, and visiting a few mosques and museums along the way, so come and join us in this travel guide as we show you around Mostar (Мостар) and give you a few ideas for your own trip!

This street is lined with restaurants, cafes, and hotels, but as you approach the famed Old Bridge, it turns into a bit of a bazaar with small shops that are bursting at the seams with souvenirs.

Stari Most, also known as the Old Bridge, which is the city’s main landmark. This 16th-century Ottoman bridge joins the two parts of the city across the River Neretva.

And that’s a wrap for Mostar! This was one of our favourite destinations of 2017.

With its Ottoman architectural wonders, delicious dishes served in heaping platters, and warm locals who take hospitality to a whole new level, there’s a lot to love about the city! Mostar is strikingly beautiful, but it’s the people who give the place its soul.

Yes, the city’s been through a lot, and it still bears the scars of a horrible war fought in the 90s, but Mostar has picked itself up and is showing visitors all it has to offer.

We hope you enjoyed getting to experience this city through our eyes on this travel guide, and as always, if you have any other suggestions of things to do in Mostar, feel free to share your tips with travellers in the comments below.

Bosnia and Herzegovina Tourism | Best Places To Visit In Sarajevo Bosnia and Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina Tourism | Best Places To Visit In Sarajevo Bosnia and Herzegovina.Despite all those rugged mountains, the snow-caked heights of the Dinaric Alps, the beautiful Una River and towns like Mostar and Stolac where Ottoman and Byzantine, Roman and Balkan, Slavic and oodles of other styles all coalesce between the ancient streets, Bosnia and Herzegovina remains a somewhat off-the-beaten-track corner of Europe. Check out this list of the country’s best places to visit, which flits from the wild hinterland to the buzzing, burgeoning capital along the way.
1. Capital Sarajevo
Sarajevo is simply special and, by far, one of the most unique capital cities in Europe. I haven’t met too many people who have visited and didn’t fall in love a little for a number of reasons: the sinfully delicious food, its surrounding mountain scenery, the kindness of the locals, or its unbreakable spirit.
2. Lukomir Mountain Village
Lukomir is a magical mountain village where very traditional Bosnian lifestyle has been fully maintained. It is not as isolated as it used to be due to its increased popularity and the growing number of tour operators offering it as day trip from Sarajevo. For sure, an experience you can’t find in too many other places in Europe anymore.
3. Sutjeska National Park
Wild horses, funky Yugoslav monuments, a primeval forest, great hiking, and the highest peak in Bosnia & Herzegovina…What is not amazing about Sutjeska National Park?
4. Travnik
Bisected by the babbling Lasva River as it flows through the central mountains of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the pretty mid-sized town of Travnik does well to balance its interesting past as the capital and stronghold of the erstwhile viziers of this old Ottoman sub-region and modern day adventure sports and outdoorsy draws. The first aspect manifests in a curious array of traditional eastern-style edifices and monuments, two Ottoman clock towers (unique throughout the country) and a handsome 15th-century old town heart.
5. Mostar
One of the undisputed jewels of the entire Balkan Peninsula, Mostar oozes Bosnian history from each of its Byzantine cracks, Slavic crevices and Ottoman facades. The piece de resistance has to be the arched Old Bridge that spans the Neretva at the town’s heart, now meticulously reconstructed following destruction in the Croat–Bosniak conflict and a bearer of that coveted UNESCO tag. And all around this masterpiece cast in stone, Mostar layers Dalmatian builds and Franciscan churches, oriental designs and arabesque mosques into one glorious aesthetic

David takes us around to discover what to do in Banja Luka, the second largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In this episode we'll show you what to see and where to eat in Banja Luka should you ever make it to the central northern region of this fascinating country.

David opens up with a brief history of the city from the banks of the Vrbas River near the Kastel, where he explains all the different cultures that have resided Banja Luka throughout the centuries. The first stop on David's Banja Luka tour is Gospodska Street, the city's main pedestrian boulevard lined with neo-Rennaissance and art nouveau buildings. Along Gospodska Street there are shops, banks, sidewalk cafes and restaurants.

Next is the Church of Christ the Savior, a Serbian Orthodox church in downtown Banja Luka. What stands today is a reconstruction of the original church built in 1929 and destroyed during WWII. This one was built in 2004 and features a beautiful bell/ clock tower and golden domes that are typical of eastern orthodox churches. If you come to Banja Luka don't miss visiting the Central Market, a covered market where vendors sell everything from vegetables and clothing, to specialty cheeses and household items. Everything is so fresh and organic! The Central Market open every day and is free to enter. The best time to come is in the morning to avoid the midday heat.

If you've been traveling in Bosnia for a while, you may have tried Ćevapčići (pronounced che-vap-chee-chee). These oblong-shaped grilled minced meatballs are the undisputed kings of Bosnian fast foods. You can find them throughout the Balkans; an influence left behind by the Ottomans. In Banja Luka Ćevapčići are made a little differently than the rest of the country - they are patties instead of shaped like sausages. A great place to try them is Kod Muje restaurant. From the outside, Kod Muje looks like a wooden cabin. Sit outside in the shaded terrace under one of the umbrellas like David did to enjoy the fresh air with your meal. This is a cheap and very satisfying meal.

The next restaurant David visits is the only restaurant in the Kastel fortress, Kazamat Restaurant. It has a beautiful setting along the Vrbas River, which is why reserving a table outside is highly recommended! For the last 30 years they've specialized in traditional Serbian food like fresh salads and grilled meats. The inside of Kazamat Restaurant is a little dark, but decorated with medieval memorabilia that's worth having a look. One of David's top restaurant picks for Bosnia!

According to everyone we spoke with, Mala Stanica is the best restaurant in Banja Luka, so David knew he had to try it! What makes Mala Stanica special is its location within the 19th century train station. This historically and architecturally significant building is a cultural icon of Banja Luka. Mala Stanica specializes in gourmet fusion cuisine, and they believe in slow cooking their foods to optimize the flavors. David enjoyed a memorable tasting menu of the house specialties with sampling from the extensive wine list (100+ wines!) You cannot leave until you've had the chocolate soufflé, their most popular dessert. TO-DIE-FOR!
