Tours in Bosnia & Herzegovina
Bosnia & Herzegovina (BiH) lies at the cultural crossroads of East and West, situated between Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro. It is one of Europe’s most diverse nations, its history moulded by the meeting of the Byzantine and Ottoman civilisations from the East with the Romans and Austro-Hungarians from the West. In March 1992, BiH became an independent nation, an act that led to war between the Bosnian Croats and Muslims (who wanted independence) and the Serbs (who didn’t). Three years of war ravaged the country, but in 1995 a peace agreement was signed and the long rehabilitation process began.
Today, it is a warm and welcoming country, and Bosnia & Herzegovina holidays offer magnificent architecture in thriving cities such as Sarajevo and Mostar, with equally varied cuisine reflecting its past. Further afield, a country of rugged scenery awaits, including soaring mountains, rural communities and tranquil pastures.
