Sarajevo — 5 nights

Nearly destroyed by war during the 1990s, the riverside city of Sarajevo now serves as one of the region's major educational, cultural, and commercial hubs.
On the 3rd (Sun), spend a day ambling around Vrelo Bosne. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Bascarsija, take in the views from Latin Bridge, get engrossed in the history at War Childhood Museum, and make a trip to Sarajevo War Tunnel.

To see where to stay, maps, and tourist information, read Sarajevo visit planner.

Stockholm, Sweden to Sarajevo is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. When traveling from Stockholm in July, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Sarajevo: temperatures range from 32°C by day to 16°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Wed) so you can go by car to Mostar.

Heart-Shaped Land
With the legacy of war still fresh on the streets of Bosnia and Herzegovina, this Balkan gem is often overlooked as a holiday destination. Part of the former Yugoslavia, Bosnia and Herzegovina endured a bloody and destructive war for independence in the 1990s, which ripped apart its capital and other important cities. Since then, Bosnians have moved on, and as the rest of the world does too, tourism in the country is slowly growing. You’ll be welcomed by locals with open arms, eager to share their country and culture with those who include Bosnia and Herzegovina in their itineraries. Sarajevo and Mostar top most visitors' list of places to visit for their rich history and charming streets. Make sure to indulge in some local specialities such as burek.
