DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 1 & 2: Arrival and explore Mostar

Many travelers prefer to travel from neighboring Croatia, however, Mostar is the starting point for visitors. This place deserves at least two days for a complete exploration of the place. One day must fully be dedicated to discovering Herzegovina’s central city and another day must be invested in exploring Mostar. Plan your two day-trip in such a way that you would cover both Medjugorje and Pocitelj. Invest your first day of the Bosnia itinerary in strolling Mostar’s old bazaar, the modern Croatian districts and last but certainly not least, the famous bridge, Stari Most. After spending time here, move towards the Old Bazaar, where you can buy souvenirs for friends and family. On the move, you can grab some grub from the nearest terrace restaurant that is overlooking the River Neretva. This is how you can wrap up your first day of the trip. Come to your hotel in the night or evening, depending upon your mood. Next day, wake up early in the morning to visit the Catholic pilgrimage site in Medjugorje. There is an interesting story behind this site is that here six teenagers claimed to have seen and spoken to Mother Mary. It is the top attraction of the city and one of the most visited places in the city. Spend your daytime here and leave for your hotel in the evening.

Day 3 & 4: Konjic and Sarajevo

For the reference, Konjic sits halfway between Mostar and Sarajevo, so it is a better idea to visit Konjic before you proceed further to explore the beauty of Sarajevo. Picturesque Konjic sits on both sides of the River Neretva crossed by Stara Cuprija and the dominating six-arched bridge has two main claims to fame. When you visit, you will be guided that it is the last significant structure under the Ottomans in the 17th-century which mark the border between Bosnia and Herzegovina. Spend your daytime in the sightseeing, exploring Tito’s Secret Nuclear Bunker, and hiking in the canyons. And it is suggested to go back to your hotel in the evening. Next morning, it is suggested to leave early for the capital of Bosnia, Sarajevo to explore the city within a day. There are many things that you can explore here, ranging from maze-like Ottoman core to the Austro-Hungarian Central European elegance in its shopping districts. If you are a foodie or likes sipping on the coffee, this country has endless cafés that serve up strong Bosnian coffee with restaurants having platefuls of cevapi. Just in case, you want to enjoy hiking and skiing, then you can proceed further in some time. Wrap up the day with a delightful meal at the hotel.

Day 5 & 6: Travnik & Visoko

Start your day by taking an early bus to Travnik, which is the former seat of the Ottoman Viziers between 1697 and 1850. Travnik castle and two clock towers are the main attractions of the city. The best part with this place is that it is the birthplace of famous author Ivo Andric, who put Bosnia’s Visegrad on the map in his book: The Bridge on the Drina. Spend a night and explore the open-air museum that was once called the European Istanbul. Start your sixth day trip with Visoko’s famous Bosnian Pyramids which most of the people haven’t heard. These pyramids are the tallest and the oldest one in the city. Bosnian Pyramids in Visoko is a small town near Sarajevo in which a local archaeologist Semir Osmanagic suggests the five hills are human-made structures. In order to know everything about the place in detail, you must hire a guide or buy a manual that will instruct you in the right direction. When it comes to knowing about these five pyramids, the biggest one is a Pyramid of the Sun that stands at 220 meters, the smallest one is the Pyramid of Giza that stands at 147 meters. It is believed that the structures are said to be 30,000 years old and were made of the strongest concrete known to man. Wrap up your day before the sunset and come back to your hotel or the place you are staying in.

Day 7 & 8: Brcko & Tuzla

The seventh day is perfect to explore Brcko District that is somewhat unique with the title of Europe’s only self-governing free city. This sits on the banks of the River Sava with Croatia to the north, Brcko hasn’t become a victim of segregation. Apart from this, Bosniaks, Serbs, and Croats that are situated side by side in the city. Once you are done exploring it, take a walk along Trg Mladih, the main street which is lined with colorful Hapsburg architecture and cafes. Other highlights include the orange and yellow Gradska Vijecnic, which is a government building on Bulevar Mira 1. Start your eighth day of Bosnia tour with Tuzla that might not fall on the list of beautiful places but when you explore further and deeper, you will come to know about the beauty of the place. Upon arrival in the town, take a cab to your hotel and after settling in, go out on your journey to explore the town. This town is famous for salt production which is the primary economic source in the town. Make sure to explore the place is in the rest of the day as you have to explore more places in the coming days. This place is perfect to be covered in a day and after landing in the town, you would be left with a few hours. Once you have explored the area come back to your hotel to take rest and to enjoy your food at the hotel.
