Everyone is booking a trip to Montenegro nowadays, Slovenia is the trendy new outdoors hotspot, and Croatia is slowly turning into Balkan Disney World. This long-underrated region of Europe is more popular with travelers now more than ever — but one country continues to fly under the radar: Bosnia and Herzegovina. And yes, they’re one country.
On both my visits to Bosnia and Herzegovina I’ve been blown away by the natural beauty, the contrasting architecture, and the fascinating mixture of cultures that constitute this Balkanic country. With towering mountains, rivers so clean you can drink from them, and a history that’s both compelling and heartbreaking, a trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina is one you will never forget.
