Enjoy the beauty of ‘the heart shaped land’!
Have you already booked your flights to Bosnia and Herzegovina? We’d like to present you with the best gems of this beautiful country in the Balkans. ‘The heart shaped land’ is full of fabulous places of interest that you should definitely visit!
You’ll be surprised that Bosnia and Herzegovina is one of Europe’s less-visited countries as the country offers so many beautiful spots yet to be discovered. It is a place where the people of the Roman Catholic west, Eastern Orthodox east and the Ottoman south met, lived and warred. Many people are aware of the conflict that took place here back in the 1990s, but 20 years on, the country is a safe and welcoming destination. It provides a delightful fusion of East and West in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula.
The historic town of Mostar developed in the 15th and 16th centuries as an Ottoman frontier town. The city of diverse cultural, ethnic and religious communities is an outstanding example of a multicultural urban settlement. Mostar has long been known for its old Turkish houses and Old Bridge, (Stari Most) on emerald river Neretva. In the 1990s conflict most of the historic town was destroyed but the Old Bridge and ancient buildings in the Old Town have been rebuilt after war.
Just 12 km from Mostar there is a small village Blagaj, situated at the spring of the Buna river. The historical Blagaj Tekija is a monastery built for the Dervish cult around 1520, with elements of Ottoman architecture and Mediterranean style.
