Bosnia & Herzegovina (Bradt Travel Guide)
Tim Clancy (Author)
Bosnia and Herzegovina has emerged from the ashes of war to become one of the most exotic destinations of southeast Europe, an ancient crossroads where east meets west. Written by an author who has lived in the country since 1992, this third edition of Bradt's Bosnia & Herzegovina is the only guidebook in English dedicated to the country. It offers the most in-depth coverage on the market to this mountainous land blessed with thick forests and deep river canyons, where medieval highland villages and world-class hiking vie with a cosmopolitan café culture for the visitor's attention. Tim Clancy has lived in Bosnia and Herzegovina since he went there as an aid worker during the war. He currently works as a freelance travel writer and an outside tourism consultant to the EC Delegation to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Paperback: 288 pages; Publisher: Bradt Travel Guides; 3 edition (20 Jun 2010); ISBN-10: 1841623172; ISBN-13: 978-1841623177.

  Medugorje   -   pelgrimage
Medjugorje is the Shrine of Our Lady located among the hills in the southern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It's always been a safe place to go. According to six teenagers the Blessed Mother appeared in this small village on June 24th 1981 on a hillside and since then She appears every single day, even today.
  Mostar   -   official website
Mostar is an extraordinary town in every sense of the word. The beauty goes far beyond its ancient Babylon like 'Olde Towne' and the old bridge that once stood uniting the city from the rugged emerald Neretva River. Mostar was the city with the most mixed marriages in the former Yugoslavia...not a mosaic of cultures and traditions but a real melting pot of them. The Mediterranean climate makes it the warmest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina with mostly sunny days and clear blue skies. The Neretva turns the dry arid surroundings green with figs, kiwis, grapes, pome granites, rose hips, and even mandarins and lemons.
  Neum
With its 24 km. of splendidly diversified coast, Neum is the only entrance of BiH to the sea. Its proximity of significant, interesting and attractive towns such as Dubrovnik, Mostar, Korcula, Hutovo Blato and Medjugorje enhances the entire tourist offer of Neum and makes it even more attractive for trips, outings, and large group tours.
  Prijedor   -   Republika Srpska
Prijedor lies on the banks of the river Sana and foothill of Kozara.  Kozara is 75 kilometers long (the highest peaks are Lisina 978 meters and Rudine 920 meters). It's rich in forest and suitable for going in for winter sports. Ski - lift and ski - tracks were made before the War.

  Travnik   -   see Travnik.ba 
Travnik, the former residence of the rulers of Bosnia, is now the administrative political center of Central Bosnia. Travnik is situated in the narrow valley of the Lasva River which is bordered by Vlasic mountain to the north and Mt. Vilenica to the south. Wherever you may wander here you will find traces of rich culture and eventful history. Like other central Bosnia towns, Travnik has well preserved its medieval character. The ancient castle is of particular interest with its still intact city walls and piercing fortresses used to defend the city from outside invaders.
Travnik was once the 'European Istanbul'. It boasted many Ottoman mosques and Islamic schools, and was a main trading post between Dubrovnik to Belgrade. Many beautiful rivers and river sources run through Travnik... the old town is especially blessed with cascades, brooks and fountains. 
  Trebinje  -   Opština Trebinje
It's the southern most town in Bosnia and Herzegovina located only a half-hour from the famous town of Dubrovnik. Trebinje, too, has a rich history that dates far back into the middle ages. The town is surrounded by high dry southern Dinaric Alp mountains and fed by long and fertile valleys. Trebinje is a warm, sunny place with a truly authentic Herzegovina ambiance. See also Trebinje portal [ English language ].
  Tuzla   -   After Sarajevo and Banja Luka, Tuzla is the third largest city
The town is located in the northeastern part of Bosnia, just underneath the Majevica mountain range, on the Jala river. 'Tuzla' is derived from the Turkish word for salt refering to the extensive salt deposits found underneath the city.
  Vitez   -   City of Vitez   -   town in central Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Vitez is situated in a central part of the Valley of Lasva river, which stretches from south-eastern slope of mountain Vlasic to Busovaca. This valley is formed on the 390-480 meters of height above sea level. Vitez literally means knight in Croatian, Bosnian, and Serbian.

Bosnian food is closely related to Turkish, Greek, and other Mediterranean Cuisines. However, due to years of Austrian rule, there are many influences from Northern Europe.

History of Bosnia

Independence: April 1992 (from Yugoslavia)

  History of Bosnia and Herzegovina   -   Wikipedia
For the first centuries of the Christian era, Bosnia was part of the Roman Empire. After the fall of Rome, Bosnia was contested by Byzantium and Rome's successors in the West. Slavs settled the region in the 7th century, and the kingdoms of Serbia and Croatia split control of Bosnia in the 9th century. The 11th and 12th centuries saw the rule of the region by the kingdom of Hungary. The medieval banate of Bosnia gained autonomy by the end of the 12th century, and grew into an independent kingdom in 1377 under king Tvrtko Kotromanić. Bosnia remained independent up until 1463, when Ottoman Turks conquered the region and established the Province of Bosnia.
During the four centuries of Ottoman rule, many Bosnians dropped their ties to Christianity in favor of Islam. Bosnia was under Ottoman rule until 1878, when it became a colony under Austria-Hungary...

Music, Culture & Entertainment

Bosnian music is a mixture of ethnic Albanian, Bosnian, Croatian, Gypsy, Turkish, Hungarian, Serbian and Macedonian influences.
Epic poems, an ancient tradition, are still sung to the sound of the gusle, a single-string bowed fiddle. Bosnia's Jewish heritage is still marked in folksongs sung in Ladino, a dialect descended from 15th-century Spanish.

  Sevdalinka
Derived from the Turkish word sevda (love), sevdalinka songs were the most widespread form of music in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Incorporating both Western and Eastern elements, these deeply emotional songs speak metaphorically and symbolically of love won and lost; they came to symbolize Bosnia to natives and foreigners alike. Sevdalinke is traditionally performed with a saz, a Turkish string instrument. See Wikipedia, Sevdalinke.com and London Sevdah.
