Welcome to Tuzla
Bosnia's third-largest city is a postindustrial sprawl that certainly won't rate as a prime holiday destination. However, its ancient history of salt production has left it with some curious heritage and now that tiny Tuzla Airport has become Bosnia's WizzAir budget airline hub, you might find yourself arriving in this refreshingly untouristed place. The cityscape is predominantly Yugo-era apartment towers but the old-town area has a certain modest charm that's most pronounced on summer weekends when the street cafes are crammed and the 'beaches' of the Pannonica salt lakes are full of merry sunbathers. Tuzla's nightlife is vibrant and the city has a strong local reputation for both death metal and Bosnian rap music.
