Things to See and Do in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina has spectacular cities, including its historic and vibrant capital. Embraced by scenic mountains and valleys, Sarajevo is a bustling city influenced by both Europe and the East. The result is a fabulous mix of Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian architectural influences. While in Sarajevo, spend time in the old town's bazaar and admire traditional copper work, jewelry, ceramics and lace produced right in the heart of the city. Mostar is famous for its iconic medieval bridge and Ottoman-era architecture overlooking Neretva River where you can watch locals dive off the towering Old Bridge, or pay to do it yourself.
Hiking through the scenic mountains is a fantastic way of experiencing Bjelašnica and Jahorina. Rafting is popular on the Una, Neretva, Vrbas, and Drina rivers, while the Krivaja and Bioštica rivers are great for kayaking. Host city of the 1984 Winter Olympics, Sarajevo is also a winter destination with ski trails at the nearby Jahorina and Igman mountains. Other resorts include Vlasic close to Travnik and Vlasenica in the east - all easily reached with a car hire.

Famous Road Trips to Take in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Driving between Sarajevo and Mostar with your car rental is a classic road trip between two of the country's most loved cities. Start in the capital and drive south through dramatic mountain ranges and river valleys to Mostar, home to the Ottoman-style Stari Most (Old Bridge), one of the most photographed crossings in Europe. While on the road, sample some of the country's cuisine including cevapi (a Balkan version of a kebab) in Sarajevo and pastrmka (a local trout dish) in Mostar. From Mostar, you can go on a side trip to the majestic Blagaj monastery or continue towards the coast and Dubrovnik in Croatia to complete a popular route between the two Balkan neighbors in your National Car Rental.
