The 7 Most Instagrammable Spots In Bosnia & Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina might be known for its historic civil war, but this Balkan state has an incredible East-meets-West atmosphere.

The lush countryside is home to medieval villages, rivers and lakes, while the capital city of Sarajevo has a vibrant arts scene and buzzy terrace cafes and bars.

Wondering where to visit on your trip here for the best photographs? We’ve picked the 7 places to see for the most memorable Bosnia Instagram shots.

1. Stari Most

The historic town of Mostar is best known for its incredible 16th-century bridge, Stari Most, which was destroyed in the war in 1990 and only rebuilt in 2004.

The gravity-defying stone bridge is a popular spot to dive from into the blue waters below, and makes for an iconic Bosnia Instagram photo.

2. Kravice Waterfalls

These scenic waterfalls are one of Europe’s best-kept natural secrets. It’s separated in 20 different falls that all gush down into a huge lake below where you can go for picnics, camping and even swimming.

Stop by here during summer, when the falls look their best and you can rent a raft to float in the lake.

3. Sarajevo Bobsleigh Track

For an edgy Bosnia Instagram snap, visit the abandoned bobsleigh track from the 1984 Winter Olympics. Covered in graffiti, it’s a cool place for an impromptu photoshoot.

It’s high up in the mountains so you’ll also get an amazing view.

7. Pocitelj streets

The charming cobblestone streets in Pocitelj are stunning, with local street vendors selling fresh fruit and honey. At the top of the medieval village there’s a 15th century fort that’s well worth the uphill climb.

Pocitelj is one of the most picture-perfect places in all of Bosnia & Herzegovina.
