Bosnia & Hercegovina

The country in the heart of Balcans

Bosnia is a country in the heart of the Balkans, torn between East and West, between religions and cultures. The country, that often stays forgotten from the tourist maps and paths, still has plenty to offer. Authentic and pristine culture and traditions, mixed with the modern influence of the West and combined with the tasteful and rich gastronomy, Bosnia truly is one of the last undiscovered gems of Europe.
