Mehmed Pasa Sokolovic Bridge

Reviewed By Nacionalni Park S - Foca, Bosnia and Herzegovina

If you are visiting Bosnia, you have to see Mehmed Pasha Bridge in Visegrad!
It became worldwide known thanks to Ivo Andric, a Bosnian novelist, who has written the novel „Bridge over Drina“ and got a Nobel prize for it.
Ivo Andric and his book remains the most translated book and author in general from these parts of the world.
The bridge over Drina is a magnificent work of art spanning the river with 11 large arch and several smaller ones. It is one out of the total number of three UNESCO heritage bridge monuments around the world - of which two are in Bosnia and Herzegovina!
Take a drive with the old Steam engine train - popularly called Čiro, and enjoy some of the breathtaking views!
On your way to Visegrad be sure to make a photo stop in one of the most serene places in the country – the Romanija mt plateau.
If we are lucky we might see some of Bosnian mountain wild horses on the way to and back from Visegrad.

Hercegovacka Gracanica

Reviewed By LondonTravellerUK - London

Loved this place. Great views, free parking and an interesting church complete with nearby giftshop and a cool restuarant with childrens play ground attached. The best sight in the area with great sweeping views over Trebinje and surrounding areas.
Worth the effort and clearly signposted from the city.

Tvrdos Monastery

Reviewed By Bojan M - Belgrade, Serbia

Very nice place filled with good and spiritual energy. I just can't stop asking myself is it ok to have that modern winery as part of monastery?! It looks a little commercial in my opinion. There, you can experience tradition and enjoy nature for sure.

Arslanagica Bridge

Reviewed By LondonTravellerUK - London

This is one of those attractions that isn't exploited, and is often empty. We parked up nearby and spent 45 mins walking over and around the bridge taking some great pics too.
If you are in Trebinje or nearby make sure you check it out. No divers like Mostar but still a thing of beauty in its own way.

Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, Banja Luka

Reviewed By AlbertSalichs - Manresa, Spain

Christ the Savior Cathedral Church is one of the most important orthodox churches in Bosnia&Herzegovina. It is located in a big square, in the center of Banja Luka, the main city of Republika Srpska (the Serbian region in the Bosnia&Herzegovina). The place is very beautiful, and the square is a very good site to sit down, relax and eat something while you see the big and very beautiful religious building. Pitifully, I cannot go inside, because it was closed, when I arrived in the city.

Srebrenica Genocide Memorial

Reviewed By Bigtangle - Oxford, United Kingdom

This really is a must see! You cannot visit Bosnia and Herzegovina without realizing the awful past that happened here between 1992-1995. The importance of the Potocari memorial is undeniable and shouldn't be missed. The exhibition is informative and the cemetery is deeply moving.
The small shop on site is run by the mothers of Srebrenica, women who lost their family members during the war.
Hassan Hasanović, a survivor of the genocide, is often available for tours of the exhibition space and explains the events that he lived through.
A truly moving space, so important to remind us that we should never forget that this can happen in the world and fight for it to never happen again.

National Park Kozara

Reviewed By Miha P - Maribor, Slovenia

Kozara is a mountain, not too high, but with huge woods to the top. In the last decade it was rearranged to a place for rest, to walk around, to use your or rented bike. On the entrance you pay small entrance fee, two KM. You have 10 more km to drive up. You have enough place to park near the monument or near the hotel and two restaurants. Some small wooden houses sell souvenirs and soft drinks. Main attraction, beside the nature, is a huge monument (Dušan Džamonja). A tower with decorations is surrounded with concrete structures. Few steps down is a small museum with description of the second world war and German and Croatian crimes against mainly civilian people, from children to old. History is, like old staircase, more and more forgotten and new generations just enjoy in nature.

Andricgrad

Reviewed By IgorMarkovic - Smederevo, Serbia

Andrićgrad was built by the famous film director Emir Kusturica, paying an homage to important historical figures from modern-day Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro and Serbia. Apart from symbolism related to persons of cultural importance, this complex also includes references to Kusturica's creative materials. Andrićgrad is basically a combination of different cultural and architectural backgrounds and styles, related to this part of the Balkans. But, don't expect too much. Excluding the beautiful view on Drina and Rzav confluence and the Mehmed-paša Sokolović bridge, unusual architectural construction, and a museum, Andrićgrad offers only caffes, bars and souvenir shops. It is worth a visit, but it is not something that will genuinly impress you.
