Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country with a really extraordinary past – both ancient and recent. Its often-turbulent history has left its mark in the form of beautiful architecture and moving memorials. The cities dotted around the mountainous countryside are mostly small in size but big on charm. Comfortably nestled in scenic valleys, they are home to an extremely diverse and friendly people.

With about half of the country still covered in forest, outdoor activities are especially popular in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Vrbas river has world championship-level rafting while the calmer river Sana is great for fly-fishing. If you’re rather keep your feet dry, there are tons of great hiking routes, with plenty of peaks over 2,000 meters high.
