This hidden gem deep in the misty forrests of East Bosnia just recently inscribed as UNESCO World heritage, so we surely make a visit there. Later we continue for one more hour of ride through mountain parts of Bosnia before we meet up with turquoise Drina river canyon and arrive to Višegrad. Višegrad is home to UNESCO heritage too, an Ottoman time bridge built in 1577. by the Grand Vizier Mehmed Pasa Sokolovic. The book: “Bridge Over Drina” by Bosnian and Travnik born, World famous Nobel Prize winner, Yugoslav writer Ivo Andrić has given most of the glory to this amazing place. As soon as we see the Bridge and take the river cruise through amazingly green Drina river, we’ll explore stone town of Andrićgrad (eng.Andrić town). Small, stone made town, recently built, named and dedicated after novelist Ivo Andrić.

The Šargan Eight is narrow gauge (760mm) steam railway originally built in 1925., famously called Ćira (Chira).

Travnik - an Open Museum Tour

Travnik is located in the valley of the River Lašva. Today Travnik is a small town of 57,543 people, but from 1699 to 1850 it was the governor’s capital of the Bosnian Ottoman Empire. An Ottoman Vizier town still considered an inevitable destination of Central Bosnia. It is some 90km away from Sarajevo, about an hour and 10 minutes drive through the Sarajevo Motorway. The town of Travnik is often called the European Istanbul due to the oriental structures such as the colorful mosque of Sultan Sulejman. On the Travnik Tour, we will visit the Old Town of Travnik where you can smell the alluring aroma of Ćevapćići of Travnik, the traditional Bosnian meatballs. We will then visit the home of Nobel Prize Winner Ivo Andrić, which is now a museum of the writer’s works and possessions. The Valley of Lašva and Travnik were famous for its wealthy structures during the roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire. One of the most impressive structures is the Travnik Fortress which still stands on top of a hill and can be seen upon entering the town of Travnik.Old Fort is one of the most beautiful and best preserved medieval fortified buildings in Bosnia on which later historical periods left their distinctive characteristics. In so far known historiography sources, there is no record of the year and the duration of construction, or the builder. Historians agree that the castle was built in the second half of the 14th or the first half of the 15th century. By way of construction and other indications it is assumed that the original builder was King Tvrtko II Kotromanić, but King Stjepan Dabiša is also stated as a possible builder.Before leaving Travnik we will visit a famous local restaurant. This restaurant has existed for centuries and it became famous by the book of Ivo Andric, The Travnik Chronicles. This a great place to refresh, relax and enjoy a traditional coffee.
