Herzegovina is a visual addict paradise. You might be surprised, but I believe that BiH is one of the most photogenic countries I’ve ever been to. Some people will only see war scars in Sarajevo. Others will focus on an unfavorable economical situation all over the country. While you shouldn’t ignore these issues, the beauty is what you should seek on your travels in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Are you taking notes already? Great, I have something for you to write down. Pay tiny Bosnian towns a visit. Sarajevo and Mostar are perfect, but the country has much more to offer.
Here is a visual proof of what I just said. It’s Počitejl, my personal favorite in Herzegovina, located just 30 kilometres outside Mostar. Some people say Mostar is place to visit on a day trip from Sarajevo. These people are wrong. Seriously, just stay in Herzegovina for several nights and don’t be sorry.
I don’t think I need to say more. Just look at it and admire the perfection of its Ottoman style architecture, beautifully composed narrow streets, and, last but not least, scenic landscape in the background.
