Bosnia and Herzegovina Tourist Traps

  • The castles and fortress

    There are many remnants of the castles and fortress all over B&H. Most of them have been destroyed in the past centuries, likewise in the recently passed war. When visiting them, take good care if you see the sign PAZI MINE, it is warning for the mines. The best is if acompaigned by the locals, they know how to save you from possible troubles.

  • Passport/Border Crossing Croatia

    This is not a tourist trap but rather a friendly reminder: As many combine a Bosnia trip with a vist to Croatia/Damatia, keep in mind that the Dalamtian coastline is interrupted by a tiny piece of Bosnia, the sea resort Neum. So when you travel Mostar via Neum to Dubrovnik, you will have multiple border crossings and passport controls - keep your...

  • Medjugorje...Religious Shrine or Tourist...

    In the 1980's six children saw apparitions of the Virgin Mary in the small town of Medjugorje. Now every year hundreds of thousands of Catholics make the pilgrimage to this location, even though the Catholic Church has not sanctioned the apparitions. I am Catholic and was very moved when I visited Fatama (in Portugal) so I had to visit Medjugorje....

  • War is over but...

    .Don't be surprised seeing many destroyed, burnt out and empty houses and many burnt out cars by the road. And don't be afraid like me haha - it's over.MORE: in my travelogue War..

    The worst traps are those mined ones (see: dangers). Generally - do not expect too much. And always (in hotels, private accomodation) make sure about the price in advance.
