Sarajevo, a small city squeezed between the mountains, has seen empires come and go. They all left their marks on this most resilient of cities. The city has survived its recent siege as it survived wars, plagues and earthquakes in the past, and managed to maintain its multireligious and tolerant character.

For centuries, vibrant communities of Muslims, Orthodox and Catholic Christians and Jews influenced and reinforced each other, and jointly created an extraordinary city. Sarajevo wouldn't be Sarajevo without its plethora of cultural festivals, museums and monuments. It wouldn't be Sarajevo without its surrounding mountains, dense forests and Olympic-quality ski resorts. And it most certainly wouldn't be Sarajevo without the beautiful, cultured, tolerant, witty, rugged, unpretentious Sarajevans.

This guide covers all there is to see and do in the city itself, and explores many hidden treasures in the surrounding areas. Enjoy the journey.

As the border and battleground of the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian empires, and as the birthplace of the Bosnian nation, this region has shaped much of the cultural and historical heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Today, countless monuments as well as the region's everyday culture bear witness to the rich history of Central and North Bosnia. Notwithstanding its rich cultural heritage, and with the exception of Bihać, this region is off the beaten tourist track and you won't find much tourist information anywhere. This guided journey aims to fill that gap. It reviews hundreds of hotels and restaurants, museums and galleries, parks and festivals in all major towns and cities in the region. It also explores ancient monasteries and fortresses, and travels along the region's rivers and deep into its forests. Enjoy the journey.
