Itinerary

DAY 1 – SARAJEVO

  • A warm welcome at Sarajevo International Airport. The guide will give you the main information about Bosnian currency, exchange office, post office etc. When you get ready to go, our guide will transfer you to the hotel introducing you with the rest of the city. After check-in it is time to get relax and prepare for the first day of your Bosnia holiday.
  • Overnight stay in Sarajevo

DAY 2 – SARAJEVO

  • You will surely have a great first overnight in Sarajevo. After a nice Bosnian breakfast, our guide will meet you in the lobby. It is time to start exploring the city.
  • Sightseeing starts from the Sebilj. A famous wooden fountain located in the heart of Bascarija – Old town. Strolling down through the streets from XVI century, don’t be surprised if it reminds you to Istanbul. You will find yourself in the middle of Ottoman architecture with small coffeehouses craftsman’s shops and the smell of food and coffee. The old Stay in, Coppersmith street, Gazy Husrev- bey’s Mosque, Library, Clock tower, Old bazar Bezistan are just some of the highlights of this Ottoman area.
  • Suddenly at some point you will realize scenery around you is completely different. You are standing at the point where East meet West. There is no other European city that has exact line of meetings of two cultures: Western and Orient. Make a step from Istanbul to Vienna.
  • Let’s find out why Sarajevo is often called “Jerusalem of Europe”. At very small area there is at least half a dozen places of worship of four religious: Islam, Judaism, Catholicism and Eastern Orthodox Church. The sound of church bell mix with a call for prayer by muezzin.
  • One of the most famous spots is the place of Assassination of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife in 1914. This led to the First World War and shaped the history of Europe forever. You can stand at this very place.
  • 1425 days – 3 years, 10 months and 24 days. That’s how long Sarajevo was under the siege in early ’90. It is pretty incredible that both first and last most important events of the 20th century happened in this very city.
  • The walking tour finish by the Eternal flame – a monument from the times of Yugoslavia.
  • After Exploring the city, it is time for Trebevic. Trebević is the natural backdrop of Sarajevo and one of Sarajevo’s most popular outing spots. We will reach Trebević by cable car while admiring the beautiful scenery and the view of the capital.
  • For luge and bobsled competitions during the 14th Winter Olympic games in 1984, bobsleigh track was built, at the time one of the most modern ones in Europe. Today, bobsleigh track is not in use anymore. It is a nice reminder of one of the brightest times in Bosnian history.
  • The guide will take you first to a viewpoint Vidikovac. It is a great spot to enjoy the best panoramic view of Sarajevo. Next stop is the bobsleigh track where you can have a walk through it. It is very attractive for street artist. Colorful graffiti are painted everywhere over bobsleigh track.
  • Overnight stay in Sarajevo

DAY 3 – MOSTAR AND BLAGAJ

  • After the rich breakfast at the hotel, the guide will meet you and take you to the sunny and warm part of our country, Herzegovina.
  • Mostar is the center of Herzegovina region. After introduction to the history of this region, you are going directly to the worldwide known Old Bridge – Stari Most.
  • Stari Most is a 16th century, Ottoman style bridge and Mostar’s most notable architectural landmark. Stretching 28 meters across Neretva river, it connects the two sides of the city. It proudly stood there for 427 years, until it was destroyed in 1993 during the Bosnian war. Thanks to postwar restoration efforts,a new bridge was built in 2004.
  • Unless you visit Mostar during winter, you will definitely get a chance to watch brave yet talented local men dive off the bridge, plunging 20 meters into the cold river below. The practice of diving off the bridge started back 1664 and become the tradition for the young man of Mostar. In 1968, the city even held a formal diving competition, which still continues today.
  • The walk continues to Koski Pasha Mehmed mosque, built in 1618. It is a simple but pretty mosque. For a small fee you can enter the mosque and even climb the very narrow staircase in the minaret for the most spectacular view of Mostar and the Old Bridge.
  • Lunch time? It is your choice! Lunch beside the Old Bridge or in Blagaj – our next stop? Any choice is just perfect.
  • Blagaj, heaven of peace and harmony is just 15 min drive form Mostar. It is an ancient capital of Herzegovina. The Buna spring is simply breathtaking. It is also one of the largest sources of drink water in Europe.
  • Next to the water source, is a 16th century Dervish house – Tekke. It is still one of the most mystical places in Bosnia & Herzegovina. The place is still used for dervish gathering but it is also a museum. While being there one can definitely feel the spiritual power of this place.
  • Blagaj is a perfect place to end the third day of your Bosnia holiday. It is time to make yourself comfortable and drive back to Sarajevo.
  • You will be returned to Sarajevo and transferred to your hotel.
  • Overnight stay in Sarajevo

DAY 4 – TRAVNIK & JAJCE

  • After breakfast, the guide will meet you at your hotel to take you to another day trip. This time, you are heading towards central Bosnia. On the way to final destination Jajce, you will make a short break in Travnik.
  • Travnik is the Ottoman Viziers capital of Bosnia for 150 years. Travnik’s Old Town has an Ottoman center with mosques, centuries-old buildings and Bosnia’s only sundial. Located over the town, Travnik castle offers you a very nice panoramic view of old Ottoman rooftops. The castle dates back to pre – Ottoman Bosnia when the former Bosnian kingdom ruled the region.
  • Just one hour from Travnik, you will arrive to the museum under the open sky – Jajce. Throughout Bosnia’s long history, Jajce has been the home of medieval kings, Ottoman governors, and a range of different ethnic groups, as well as being one of President Tito’s earliest Communist strongholds.
  • Pliva falls will welcome you at the entrance of the town. The falls are more than 20 m high, and are at the point where two rivers meet and converge. For a small fee you can get to a viewing platform where you are close enough to feel the spray of the water.
  • And for the last stop we left Pliva lakes, an area of stunning natural beauty. A visit to the lakes is a great family activity, or is ideal simply for those looking for a relaxing day by the water.
  • After a day in central Bosnia, you will be transferred back to Sarajevo. Return to your hotel.
  • Overnight stay in Sarajevo

DAY 5 – SARAJEVO

  • Breakfast at the hotel. Recommended check out is at 11.00am. If our flight is late afternoon, we will take care of your luggage so you can do a final souvenir shopping or simply have a cup of Bosnian coffee or ćevapi.
