There are many stories about how this city got its name. The most valid is the one that says that the city got its name because from that city you can look forward into the world.  (Prozor – window)
When you look at the city from close spot called Lug, you cannot actually see the city because of a stone block that has little holes in it that remind of windows.

This is a small city that long time ago was a really important milestone of roads.
It was first mentioned 11th of august, 1336.
Threw the history of course, it was occupied plenty of times, has been in different wars, and it is still here, and brings the attention of a lot of people.

You’ve noticed that the city has two words in the name, and I have explained one word.
Now I’m going to explain the other one, or what does it stand for, and which part.

People of this place are living next to the river Rama that is nowadays Lake Rama.
Name Rama was always considered as the name of the river and the parts beside the river.
After the river was turned into artificial lake, that lake was border between lower and upper Rama.

Lake is really gorgeous, has the surface of 1500 hectares, and the biggest depth is 95 meters.
Lake has a lot of springs, that are not just on surface, there are springs underneath the surface, and that makes this lake even more interesting. That lake is limited by the mountain crown, but that makes it even more beautiful. Water is really clean, good for some swimming with your friends, and having a barbecue near that stunning lake.
What can be more beautiful than that?
I can’t think of anything. J

When you read about Bosnia, you get the fact that there is a lot of history in it.
Let’s get some education, but not the boring kind. J

Old village-town Počitelj:

In 14th century, year 1326, this place was built, and people live here even today, although there is just a few families left in the village.
One of them says that the family “ Dizdari “ was in charge of the village, and that the place was glowing, but nowadays there is just a small number of people, and it is all just shutting down.
He says that he traveled the world because of work, but he never wanted to move out of here, because this place has his soul. J

It was held by a lot of occupiers, and when you see the picture, you’ll understand why.
Although it is hard to get there, because you have to walk a lot, you have the amazing view of Herzegovina.

And, when you reach the top of the fortress, you will feel the history too.

Blagaj:

Was built by Romans but they found traces of prehistorical and Illyrian age. It was first a forth, but with time it developed in real jewel of BiH. Most beautiful part of it is the mysterious tekke, and spring of river Buna.

See why?
Yeah, I said woooow as well, and I have been there before. It is fascinating.
As far as the tekke, I need to tell you one legend about its name.
They say that tekke Blagaj got its name by the treasure that Herceg Stjepan Vukčić had buried in the caves. In Bosnian, word for treasure is “blago.”

Kravice:

I really don’t think that I have to say anything about this waterfall.
The picture is going to be enough to wake your imagination up, pack your things, and visit these beautiful places.

Once again summer rocked in and just as other travel I was planning my vacation, I had many destinations to choose from but not enough time. My friends had told me about the Balkans and about a country that counts roughly 3.5million citizens. The hidden treasure in the Balkans they said… to those of you that don’t know what country I’m talking about: Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Of course, the first thing I looked up was its capital city, Sarajevo. The mini Jerusalem, they call it. I hadn’t realized how right they were until I actually walked through this beautiful city. You turn one corner you have one of the oldest mosques in Sarajevo dating back to the Ottoman empire, take a left and you see the Jewish Synagogue. Turn around walk down the beautiful pedestrian street of Sarajevo and you will find the beautiful Catholic cathedral, take a left from there and you will have a beautiful Orthodox church. Yes! All of this in a city and on the Balkans!

If I had to pick one of the best things that I saw during my stay it would definitely be a struggle, I am a foodie and food is always number one on my interiray but oh man, this country stole my heart. I basically fell in love with the city and with the people and the food is just amazing.

Sarajevo is literally a city that is indescribable, you can definitely enjoy your summer here. Given the fact that the temperatures rise up to 35 degrees! So you can have a lot of fun in the sun!
