Never in my life have I visited a place as unexpected as Bosnia & Herzegovina.
Besides eager day trippers waddling in from nearby Croatia, this tiny country, packed with beauty, still skims like a ninja under the main tourist radar.
… But it’s not just the physical beauty of Bosnia that reels you in. For me, it’s the country’s unwavering resilience and optimism, felt in the warmth of the people, their candid openness about their past and their steady dedication to reversing negative assumptions around their country.
Most stories of Bosnia told in the media are ones of devastation, loss and tragedy, but that’s only one side of the country’s multi-faceted truth. Today, I want to show you that Bosnia is more than a country recently devastated by war… it’s a stunning, worthwhile destination filled with endless amounts of magnetic beauty and charm.
This is the beauty of Bosnia & Herzegovina in photos… I hope you like it.
PS: I spent most of my time in Mostar, because I loved it so much I kept extending my stay. This left almost no time to explore Sarajevo and other parts of the country… something I hope to rectify very soon. Let me know in the comments where else in Bosnia & Herzegovina I need to visit on my next trip!
