Bosnia is an amazing country. Indeed, the whole region from the plains of Vojvodina and Romania to the beaches of Bulgaria and Greece and across to the dry arid mountains of Albania, Croatia and Montenegro, is a delight. Everyone should visit if they can at all, it’s cheap, there’s lots to see, and it’s incredibly varied in every way. Being Irish was always an advantage; our history and politics have given people in the region a great affinity for us as a nation. The strength of family bonds, the importance of the diaspora, and nationalism are values shared by Ireland and the various nationalities in the Balkans.

Tucked into a river-cut valley surrounded by peaks, Sarajevo has a natural beauty often forgotten amid artificial contrivances.

 Alex Crevar

 

Nestled in a valley on either side of the river Miljacka, Sarajevo isn’t known as the “Jerusalem of Europe” for nothing. In its more harmonious past this was the only European city to have a mosque, Catholic church, Orthodox church and synagogue in the same neighbourhood.
