Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, is probably one of the least known and visited European capitals. It’s not big, populated by less than half a million people. However, the history of Sarajevo is so rich, complex and turbulent that even if the city had given half of its past away to some of the world’s greatest metropolises, it would still be enormously interesting for a foreign visitor. Strolling down the streets of the old town, you’ll get the impression that it was glued together from pieces that came from all parts of Europe and the Middle East: at one corner, you’ll think you’re in Prague admiring Christian churches and a street later when you notice oriental stalls, bazaars and Ottoman Mosques, you’ll feel as if you were transported to Istanbul.
Boasting of cosmopolitan cities and beautiful quaint villages, tourism in Bosnia has been increasing manifolds over the last two decades. While popular tourist destinations like Sarajevo, Banja Luka, and Mostar brag of unlimited shopping, food and nightlife options throughout the year, the demand for Bosnia and Herzegovina tour packages is also on an all-time high thanks to its luxury ski resorts, beautiful national parks, and lush, dense forests. A holiday in Bosnia will ensure you have great memories for a lifetime.
How to get to Sarajevo
Sarajevo Airport is connected with some European cities, however, I would say it’s much easier (and cheaper) to travel to Sarajevo when you travel to other, better known destinations in the region. For example, if you visit Dubrovnik in Croatia, Mostar in Bosnia or Montenegro (I will describe all of them in the future), it’s not difficult to catch a bus and spend a few days in Sarajevo. As the city is quite small, even one or two days is enough to see most of the most important landmarks and attractions. The price for a bus from the above mentioned places is around 20-25 EUR (22-27 USD) one way. The bus station in Sarajevo is quite far from the historical center, you’ll have to catch a trolleybus, the fare is very low.
