Busy in Bosnia

Busy (adjective): "having a great deal to do"

 

Bosnia, or Bosnia and Herzegovina as its officially known, is a relatively short bus/car ride from Dubrovnik. A melting pot of religions, architecture and culture, Bosnia boasts spectacular scenery, unique cities and delicious food. We booked a day trip to Mostar and Kravice waterfalls with Laus Travels through TripAdvisor for 55 Euros each. There are a few other cheaper options if you go with a bigger group – however, as we booked reasonably late, all those spots were full.


Nevertheless, our guide, Ivan, was informative, funny and engaging. Having a smaller group also meant we spent less time waiting at the many border crossings (you will have a total for 6 border crossings, as to get to and from Mostar. You have to cross out of Croatia and into Bosnia, then back into Croatia and then BACK into Bosnia – and then repeat the whole fiasco in reverse on the return journey.) However, there is a new bridge set to be completed in early July which will link a Croatian peninsula to the mainland and therefore remove the necessity of an extra border crossing.

The 1984 Winter Olympics, also known as Sarajevo 1984, were the first Winter Olympic Games held in a socialist state and a Slavic language-speaking country. It was also the first Olympics to take place in the Balkans, since the first Olympic Games in Athens.
