BOSNIA - A WARTORN COUNTRY
Dates 2020 - TBA
(August - October)
Rates - TBA
Beautiful Bosnia & Herzegovina is most intriguing for its East-meets-West atmosphere born of blended Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian histories. Many people remember the country with the heartbreaking civil war of the 1990s. The scars from that time are all too visible but the beauty of this country and its people just make it a country to return to so many more times.
We will take you to Sarajevo, Mostar and the beautiful mountains where the 1984 Olympics have been held. You will discover the history of the siege and the destroyed Mostar Bridge. But we also will hike the mountains of Sarajevo's backyard.... We will hear directly from people who grew up during the war times, and will tell you their special story.
You only need to take Sunday and Monday off
We will arrive in Sarajevo just in time for a nice Bosnian lunch. On our way to our hotel we will stop at the Tunnel Museum, which was the only way to provide people with food during the Sarajevo Siege and visit the 1984 Olympic sites. We will check-in to our hotel, spend the afternoon in the City and end our day with a great dinner. (lunch, dinner)
After our breakfast and start our trip by driving through the olympic mountains surrounding Sarajevo. Arriving at the small local village, we will pack our local picnic lunch and then start climbing up the peak with the beautiful view of the cold glacier lake. *please note the itinerary on this day still might change to another hike depending on the weather. If you prefer not doing the hike, Srebrenica Memorial is the alternative program and will be arranged. (bf, lunch, dinner)
We will head to Mostar, to visit the famous bridge and town. It will be a long day but so worth it as you will see springs, old medieval towns, stroll old streets for shopping and maybe we get lucky and see someone jumping down the famous bridge of Mostar. On our way we will stop at a variety of spots to see nature and history. Then we will head back to our hotel. Even though very tired, we will have our last dinner in Old Town of Sarajevo. (bf, lunch, dinner)
The morning is all yours for shopping, exploring Sarajevo or just mingle with the locals over a cup of Bosnian coffee and just enjoy the atmosphere of this stunning town before we will head back to the airport by noon. (bf, snack lunch)
