Two decades after the end of the crisis, Bosnia and Herzegovina has risen strongly, and in recent years it has become an important tourist destination in Europe and the world. To learn more about this beautiful and touristy country, know with us today basic information before your visit to Bosnia.

The country is not a war zone

If someone asks you after today if you are still witnessing a war, you must answer clearly “no”, and this is what the Bosnian population stresses as well. He totally committed the war 20 years ago, and a number of tourists are still shocked when they visit Bosnia, and almost do not see any sign of war there. Bosnia is a completely safe security country. All unexploded landmines were removed from the Bosnian lands after the Civil War, so that the country is completely safe to visit, and on the other hand it is preferable not to wander in the country without the assistance of a specialized tourist guide if you decide to visit the effects of the war or the buildings affected by it, or the forests or vast valleys.

Entry visas

Bosnia is not yet a part of the European Union or the Schengen agreement, most nationalities obtain a 90-day visa upon arrival. But you have to make sure that you can enter the country before arrival and this can be done easily via the Internet.
