Overview

Bosnia and Herzegovina lies at the cultural crossroads of east and west. It was here that Byzantine and Ottoman civilizations meet Roman and Austro-Hungarian ones, molding one of Europe's most diverse nations. Where else would you find Orthodox and Catholic churches, a mosque and a synagogue side by side in the same square?
This comprehensive and practical guidebook – the first in English – leads you to the Mediterranean south and the Alpine north, through fields of fig trees and green mountains. Almost a decade after the war, you'll be pleasantly surprised by a mosaic of landscapes and a warm welcome.
This is the first single-country guide to BiH in English. It covers Sarajevo and the Herzegovina/Mostar region. You will find details on all the national parks, hiking and mountain walks and it includes practical information about red tape, accommodation, food and transport.
