Among the prejudices we have heard about Bosnia and Herzegovina, there is a particularly tenacious one: Bosnians would be rough, closed people, living in a country always in the grip of conflicts… Obviously, this is totally FALSE! You only have to visit Bosnia and Herzegovina to realize that this country, now at peace, offers an incredible diversity: nature, culture, history… Everything can be found there, and we loved it!
Bosnia and Herzegovina
No more conflicts, but still plenty of Rakija!
Welcome to Bosnia and Herzegovina, a welcoming country that has a lot to offer!
As a necessary part of our journey in Bosnia-Herzegovina, we fell in love with Sarajevo, the capital of the country – a city of incredible cultural and religious diversity, with an undeniable historical richness! We offer you to have look back on our exploration of the capital, rich in discoveries and small details!
By visiting Bosnia and Herzegovina you will find yourself in a country of great contrasts, marked by its History, with an incredible diversity… of which the city of Mostar is a perfect example! As for us, we loved walking through Mostar streets, discovering its past, relaxing on the banks of Neretva river… Let’s come back on this discovery!
On our way between Mostar and Sarajevo, our driver dropped us off in Jablanica – before leaving on his own. It was noon, lunch break: we decided to take advantage of this stop between two lifts to have a picnic. With a large loaf of bread and a jar of Ajvar, we headed towards the beautiful turquoise blue river Neretva to enjoy the view it offered us… And there, surprise! We found ourselves in front of a destroyed and partly submerged railway bridge!
On the menu of traditional Balkan recipes, you will find a lot of meat – cooked, marinated in sauce, barbecued… It took a lot of effort to adapt traditional recipes with vegetarian alternatives – but most of all, to allow us to enjoy the Balkan food, where cooking skills are perfectly combined with good, locally grown products!
