Hello and welcome to our Bosnia & Herzegovina travel blog. You will find all our Bosnia & Herzegovina blog posts in this section of our website.
Maybe you found our Bosnia & Herzegovina travel blog because you are considering a visit to the Balkans, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to Bosnia & Herzegovina. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Bosnia & Herzegovina.
We have visited Bosnia & Herzegovina a few times and our most recent visits have focussed on getting to know the capital, Sarajevo, better and continuing our search for spomeniks, the extraordinary Tito-era monuments found in the former Yugoslavia.
Our Bosnia & Herzegovina blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
