Welcome to Eastern Bosnia
Eastern Bosnia has long been almost entirely off the radar for most Western travellers, except perhaps for those visiting the sad massacre memorial sites at Srebrenica. However, this might start to change now that Tuzla has opened its airport as a budget-airline hub. And as Trebinje in Hercegovina grows in popularity, so more visitors are likely to strike north from there into the magnificent Sutjeska National Park and on towards Višegrad whose canyons, Unesco-listed bridge, steam railway and literary connections already endear it to crowds of Serbian tourists. Meanwhile passionate castle fans can seek out a selection of impressive but little-known fortresses notably at Tesanj, Gradačac and Srebrenik.
