Itinerary

DAY 1: Travel from Dubrovnik to Sarajevo via Herzegovina region

Destination: Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Accommodation: Hotel Colors inn 4* or similar
Driving Time:4.30hrs | Private Vehicle

Morning: Morning drive will take us through interesting areas of West Herzegovina before we hit the first stop at stunning waterfalls of Kravica.

Situated near Ljubuški, Trebižat River, with its travertine sedimentations, offers us a unique and breathtaking attraction – Kravica waterfalls.

Height range from 26-28 meters, the water amphitheater of 120 meters below, and the surrounding nature of Kravica waterfalls fall into a unique Bosnia and Herzegovina geological monument.

Kravice Waterfalls in Herzegovina near Mostar

Afternoon:After departing from Kravice waterfalls, we will very soon arrive at Počitelj (“Počivati” – Bos.” to rest in peace”).

Nested above the Neretva river, this unique, medieval, Ottoman era glorified, present-day Ottoman-Mediterranean style “architectured” fortress–town Počitelj is one of the remarkably few urban ensembles in Bosnia and Herzegovina preserved in their integrity to the present times.

We will take a leisurely uphill, one-hour long walk, accompanied by stories of the town’s development and strategic importance during its 600+ year-long written history, and visit to most important sites such as Hajji Alija Mosque, Clock Tower and Gavrankapetanovic tower, IS A MUST, for anyone passing through or near Herzegovina region.

Pocitelj town overlooking Neretva river - Herzegovina

Blagaj Dervish House and Lunch Break:Then, we continue through some fantastic parts of the Neretva River canyon, telling the unique stories of Herzegovina before we arrive at our next stop at Blagaj.

Blagaj town is home to Buna River Spring – Europe’s most beautiful, powerful, clean, and drinkable karst river spring, settled beneath a rock a few hundred meters high. Water rushes out from a relatively large but stunningly deep cave, springs a fantastic 43 cubic meters of water per second. Can you imagine this

Just next to the spring, under the rock, is home to Blagaj Tekke – Dervish house, dating most likely pre or early Ottoman era from the late 15th century, as a unique sacral-residential example of Islamic architecture in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Visiting this complex and learning more about Dervish life in Herzegovina is integral to our history. MUST DO.

For Muslim travelers, “Tekija” is where prayers are hosted five times a day and can be attended if wanted.

After visiting “Blagajska Tekija” and “Izvor rijeke Bune” we stay there longer. It is time for lunch. Due to the famousness and cleanliness of the Buna River, the most important thing to taste in Blagaj today is local trout.

That is why we don’t leave the place before we offer our guests the opportunity to try locally prepared trout on “Blagaj Way,” enjoying the fantastic scenery of Buna River spring and Dervish House next to it. Vegetarians, don’t worry, we have solutions for you as well 🙂

Sarajevo Olympic Bobsled Track at Trebevic Mountain

Afternoon:Once we finish with a visit to amazingly beautiful Blagaj, we will head towards Mostar.

We’ll start our 2-hour walking tour upon arrival, covering the most important sites and locations in this truly unique, small town.

During the walking tour, we will focus on Mostar Old Bridge, Old Bazaar, and Old Town but offer stories of Mostar’s uniqueness regarding historical and cultural diversity.

The tour will cover facts about the Old Bridge, its rise and fall, and how it rose again. We learn about the Siege of Mostar and its pre and post-siege period. You know why it is called Mostar, which is about Mostarians. We recreate Mostar for you and with you.

Evening: After the two-hour enjoyable drive through central Herzegovina regions and the canyon of Neretva, we will arrive at Konjic, where we shall visit the Old Town and Old Bridge before we arrive at Sarajevo where we will drop you off at your unique, centrally located hotel to relax and have a free evening so you could gather impressions over dinner and get ready for the next day.

EXPERIENCE THE BEST OF NIGHTLIFE IN SARAJEVO

Sarajevo is not a “nightclubs” city, but it is known for a handful of pubs, bars, and cafes that will meet the expectations of even the most demanding ones. Here are some of the best recommendations to start your night:

  • Tavern (Birtija)

This is one of the most unique and authentic places in the old town of Sarajevo. It is officially called “Birtija,” a convivial saloon visited mainly by locals. Every birtija should have its local special drink; at this place, it is visnjevaca- local cherry brandy.

  • La Cava

Whether you are into cocktails, a glass of wine, or watching sports with friends, this place is ideal. In a cozy atmosphere, this tiny place serves some of the best wines and cocktails you can find in the city. Moreover, this is where you will feel like a home away from home.

  • Zlatna Ribica

This unique and impressive place is not just a bar but an attraction and a must-see in Sarajevo. The decoration remains on an antique steampunk theme, and you won’t see many places in the world that include such a level of interior design. It would be best to respect the site’s style, so do not expect overly fancy service.

  • Gastro Pub Vucko

This is a paradise for beer lovers. It offers more than 120 types of beer, 15 of which are craft. Besides drinks, you can order some of the delicious snacks and dishes served on a special mat that will take you back to 1984. The bar is named after the mascot of the Winter Olympics and was created to reminisce about the golden age of Sarajevo.

  • Jazzbina

For late-night visits, Jazzbina is one of the best choices in Sarajevo. Jazz + Bina in the local language means Jazz stage, but if you cut one letter “z,” you will get a word that means “burrow.” This is exactly what this club is- a sanctuary for all jazz, blues, and R’n’R fans with excellent live music performances till early mornings.

DAY 2: Sarajevo War Tour and Story of European Jerusalem

Destination: Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Accommodation: Hotel Colors inn 4* or similar
Meals Included: B
Driving Time:1.15hrs | Private Vehicle

Sarajevo War Tunnel was dug in July 1993 and used to be main supply route to Sarajevo during the Siege

Activity Note: Today’s itinerary includes walking on uneven terrain while visiting some of the ruins during our Sarajevo Siege tour. Make sure to have some water with you, and always pay attention to the present-day weather forecast.

Breakfast: Our well-chosen range of hotels in Sarajevo start serving buffet-style breakfast around 7 AM, featuring Bosnian and International options.

Morning: The morning part of the day will start at 10 AM when we plan to set out for the walking tour of the old part and city center of Sarajevo. Our 2.5/3 hour tour will cover the stories of the origins of Sarajevo and the medieval Bosnian Kingdom. We shall visit the Ottoman and Austria-Hungarian parts of Sarajevo, which, with its stunning markets, bazaars, mosques, churches, and synagogues, will reveal the true nature of the actual European Jerusalem. We’ll visit the Latin Bridge and learn how WWI was triggered right here, in the heart of Sarajevo. Sarajevo’s 1984 Winter Olympics and life during the Siege of Sarajevo will surely be part of our story today.

After the walk, you will have some free time to further explore the center of Sarajevo on your own. You might stay in the Ottoman part of Sarajevo, delving into hidden cobblestone streets, discovering the breath of Sarajevo’s mystical past, or visit the Austria-Hungarian part and understand why Sarajevo is a city located on the crossroad of cultures.

reasons to visit sarajevo

Lunch: Get ready to try the most famous dish of the Balkans at the most important stop of the Balkans – the glorious Sarajevo’s Ćevapi or Ćevapčići. In Sarajevo, Ćevapi are made of pure beef with basic spices and are hardly to be found of such a quality anywhere in the rest of the Balkans. We have alternatives for vegetarians, and we suggest trying traditional Bosnia “pita” (eng. pie) with cheese, spinach, or potatoes. This food is generally called “burek” in the Balkans, but in Sarajevo, you will be served with meat pita if you order burek.

Afternoon: Your afternoon session (starting at 2 PM) is fully reserved for the important story of the Siege of Sarajevo, the story of the impossible survival and story of the worst Genocide in Europe since the WWII. Funky Tours Top Experiences aims to deliver a clear and unbiased understanding of the essential topics for a better overall performance of the Balkans.

Your host for the afternoon session will be local Sarajevan, an ex-Bosnian army soldier who, during the 1990ies, was directly involved in the resistance organized by the local people of Sarajevo. When the joint force of the Yugoslavian National Army, Serbian Paramilitaries, and local Bosnian Serbs initiated a general attack on Bosnia and Herzegovina to take control of the Bosnian capital, only a few people “got their heads” together and started organizing resistance. The resistance later proved crucial for defending Bosnian independence and saving hundreds of thousands of lives.

Places in focus will be Sarajevo’s infamous Sniper Alley and Hotel Holiday Inn, Sarajevo War Tunnel, Sarajevo Olympic Bobsled and Olympic mountain of Trebević, Jewish cemetery, and numerous other locations scattered throughout the Bosnian capital, today serving as the memory of the 1990ies bloody years.

Sarajevo Olympic Bobsled Track at Trebevic Mountain

The story you will follow will be firsthand experiences of local Sarajevo Siege survivors, backed up with ICTY (International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia) verdicts and official judgments. The Balkans today are a place where wars have ended militarily, but wars of denial, especially denial of Genocide and wars of relativisation, are still going on. Making sure that the unbiased facts of the 1990s conflicts are well documented and shared is imperative.

Dinner/Evening: Evening time is reserved for traditional Bosnian dinner. Try traditional Bosnian food while chatting about the Bosnian culture of living and present-day life challenges. Traditional Bosnian brandy (Šljivovica) and tasty wines of Herzegovina (Žilavka and Blatina) are a must try. Keep in mind that Bosnian food is widely based on meat, but Funky Tours will make sure we have available options equally for vegetarians and vegans.

WHEN YOU HAVE FREE TIME IN SARAJEVO

  • War Childhood Museum – The Winner of the 2018 Council of Europe Museum Prize

Rising from the crowd-sourced book War Childhood and championing the principles and practices of social entrepreneurship, the independent, youth-led War Childhood Museum has garnered recognition as the world’s only museum focused exclusively on childhoods affected by war.

  • Srebrenica Gallery and Srebrenica Genocide

Gallery 11/07/95 is the first memorial museum/gallery in Bosnia and Herzegovina – an exhibition space aiming to preserve the memory of the Srebrenica tragedy and 8372 persons who tragically lost their lives during the genocide.

  • Best Bosnian Pizza and Sunset view from the Yellow Bastion

The most famous Pizza place in Sarajevo is called “Pekara kod Mahira,” the most famous viewpoint above Sarajevo is the Yellow Bastion, a few min walking distance from the Baščaršija square. Pekara kod Mahira is a takeaway pizza place offering just one type of pizza made in the traditional style with Bosnian-style ingredients such as smoked beef and kajmak 

DAY 3: Travel to Split from Sarajevo via Central Bosnia region

Destination: Split | Zagreb
Meals Included: B
Driving Time:4.30hrs | Private Vehicle

Split Croatia

Breakfast: Our well-chosen range of hotels in Sarajevo start serving buffet-style breakfast around 7 AM, featuring Bosnian and International options.

Morning: We’ll depart Sarajevo quite early, at 8 AM. After some 45 minutes, we’ll arrive in Visoko, and the day’s first stop will be the Bosnian Pyramid Complex.

On a global scale, one of the most intriguing recent stories is the story of the Bosnian Pyramids. For some, it is only a “hoax”, but for others, it is evidence that ancient civilisations have existed on present day European soil, which has left us with unique structures, pyramids.

Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun (and four more: Pyramid of the Moon, Love, Dragon, and Mother Earth) aged roughly 12.000 years, with perfect cardinal points and Northern orientation, where thermal inertia analysis reported to reveal faster heat loss than would occur with a plain hillside, exciting story of pyramidal tunnel complex and many more facts, are reasons good enough to see compelling story of Bosnian pyramids.

Once at the site, we’ll have a guided tour of the Pyramids Tunnel Complex, where guests will get first-hand stories from local experts directly involved in site explorations and tunnel excavations. Be prepared to hear some fascinating stories, as this story might be one of the highlights of your Balkans travels.

Visoko Pyramid

Afternoon:After we finished at Visoko, we moved towards our next destination. We will pass some beautiful regions of river Bosna, the canyon of river Lašva, before we reach Travnik.

Ottoman time vizier’s town, later Nobel prize winner birthplace with stunning Plava Voda spring, Coloured mosque, and old Ottoman fortress are places worth stopping by.

Travnik is also famous for tasty Ćevapi or Travnik white cheese, so why not make this stop enjoyable and tastily?

A break at Plava Voda with some good Bosnian coffee is also necessary.

Travnik fort overlooking the Travnik old town - Central Bosnia
As soon as we finished in Travnik, we continued, and after another hour of driving through the fantastic regions of the Vrbas River, we arrived in Jajce.

Once there, the first thing we go and see is one of the World’s most beautiful waterfalls, and the only one in the World placed in the city center, the famous Pliva Waterfalls – the spot where Pliva river ends its flow and meets Vrbas is simply breathtaking.

After we bless our eyes and soul, we are ready for a walking tour through Jajce. We will visit Jajce Citadel (Fortress), the Museum of the Second Session of the National Liberation Army of Yugoslavia (AVNOJ), Medvjed Kula, the Tower of St. Luke, famous Catacombs – underground church, one of the World’s very few mosques named after a woman – Mosque of Esma Sultanija, and much more. All followed with exciting stories.

Jajce Citadel is an exciting place, allowing us to see the whole area around us and Jajce itself.

reasons to visit sarajevo

Pliva Lakes & Pliva Mills – Lunch Break: After we have “tasted” Jajce for roughly 2.30 hours, we go for the Lakes. In the vicinity of Jajce on Pliva River, there are two lakes. We’ll check out large and small Pliva lakes only five kilometers away.

The exciting part of the Pliva Lakes story are Mills at small Pliva Lake. Amongst people, they famously called “Mlinčići,” which was once the primary promotional material for postcards and the tourist potential of the Great Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy. We will make a stop there, too.

Pliva Mills near Jajce

Best week in Bosnia

Our vacation began in Split, Croatia. I contacted Funky Tours, let them know what we would like to see and Bosnia and our budget. From there, Funky Tours did the rest.

They picked us up from Split on a Monday, and kept us busy with amazing sights and tours the entire week and returned us back to Split the following Friday.

We were able to see amazing sights and experiences across the country. They made the trip stress free and handled everything. The guides were amazing. They were all extremely knowledgeable and passionate about sharing their country with us. If planning to visit Bosnia, I highly recommend Funky Tours.

They are extremely responsive, friendly and helpful with everything. I’ll certainly use them again my next visit.

All that is funky–and then some.

As I researched possible tours of the Balkans, I wanted to avoid large groups travelling by coach. I also wanted an itinerary that would balance exploration of nature, culture, and history.

Funky Tours looked especially promising. After recently completing my tour, I am happy to say that Funky Tours far exceeded my high expectations.

Emir was our expert guide and driver, but he was also so much more. He shared his wide and deep knowledge of the region and its history, vivid anecdotes from personal experience, and a delightful sense of humor.

I admired his candor and thoughtfulness in addressing difficult, sometimes political questions, and marveled at his resourcefulness as a troubleshooter who nimbly addressed any and all issues throughout the trip.

Our itinerary was rich and fascinating, often taking us off the beaten track for immersion experiences that helped burst the tourist bubble. I should add that the tour struck a fine balance between comfort and physical activity.

Hotel accommodations were excellent, the van was comfortable, and meals provided by the tour were tasty.

At the same time, I enjoyed our walking tours and light hiking in beautiful natural surroundings. Funky Tours also wisely combines structured days with plenty of free time for exploration. As much as I recommend Emir, I have no doubt that everyone at Funky Tours is a capable professional.

Just keep in mind that whatever your associations with “funky”, mine are fun, informative, mind-expanding, and first rate.

FunkyTour accompanied us during our 3-day visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

We had an incredible time with the different guides and drivers. They gave us many information about the country, its customs, its religions, about the war and the siege of Sarajevo. They took the time to let us visit the places at our own pace, and adapted to our needs and requests (meal break, shopping, coffee, toilets, etc.).

The 3-day program was rich and very complete and we had the opportunity to discover both incredible cities and landscapes. I also particularly liked the support given throughout the booking process for this tour.

I highly recommend Funky Tour for their seriousness, their kindness and the quality of their visits. Many thanks to Edna, Enis, Tarik, Nadira and Ema for making this trip an incredible memory!
