    Grill: Cevapcici are the best!

    by KristaB Updated Jul 9, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our favourite Grill was across the street from hotel Kosuta and we used to come here for a “snack” at 13.00 to recover and survive until 18.00. The owner was friendly and one day he offered to prepare some local specialties for us for the next day. We just told him to make some baked beans (Prebranac) and smoked meat with cabbage, and then we will order additional meals. Little did we knew what was coming upon us - eight of us could not dig to the bottom, so we passed the rest to our neighbours – another set of 8 skiers also got full. Since this is not from the menu, the owner told us to pay according to our satisfaction, so we gave him 50 Euros, because it was really something very special. We do eat right and healthy at home (yeah?!) but traveling experience for us includes also hedonistic epicurean pleasures. Next to hotel Kristal there is one nice restaurant with great food, there you can taste variety of locally produced brandy made of plum, pears and other fruit, even quince (“dunja”).
    Prices at small Grill shops: Cevapcici (small minced meat rolls in soft bread, some chopped onions) size 5 (enough for average eater) 5 KM = 2,5 Euro. Pizza 9 KM = 4,5 Euro. Drinks are also cheap, variety of beers, some fairly good Vranac red wine from Montenegro.

    We couldn't get to the bottom!

    Mad House: Just sing along

    by KristaB Written Mar 17, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luda kuca (Mad house) for young crowd. Every hotel has a place usually called Taverna, where you can have fun and listen to live music. Our musician was excellent with his synthesizer, he played variety from local “you ripped my heart out” to some pop, R&B and God knows what else – you have to go with the flow here, have another drink and you may even start to sing with him.

    Peggy bar - happy crowd

Jahorina Warnings and Dangers

    Vegetarians beware!

    by KristaB Updated Jul 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As you can see and almost smell, this is not a place for vegetarians and people on special diets.
    The food is based on meat, potatoes, and cabbage. It is delicious, but rather »heavy«, so do yourself a favor and eat slowly and carefully. My husband and I got sick, although the whole group of 8 + 6 people ate from the same pot! Yoghurt helped solving the problem.

    Jahorina slopes with "Kamikaze" skiers!

    by KristaB Written Mar 6, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Forget technique, classic or carving. Many skiers here take skiing as a race who will get down there first no matter what. So they scream: "CHUVAAAJ" (move away) Remember this, and often look behind your back while resting.

    Some are good and some are mad ...

    Skiing at Jahorina - Bosnia &...

    by KristaB Written Mar 4, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jahorina is perfect for good skiers and snowboarders who enjoy wild rides. No slopes for absolute beginners. Accomodation from wooden cottage with basic functions to four star hotels. Very reasonable (cheap) prices for ski-pass tickets, food & drinks.

    Equipment: Enough rental services, ski repair services & shops, just limited choice - Elan partner has a good selection of new carving models. Snowboards & shoes in limited selection.
