Travel doesn’t seem to be the photography genre most associate with Bosnia and Herzegovina. Despite the war having finished in 1995, everyone still thinks it’s only press photographers go to Bosnia.
Which is a shame because it’s a beautiful mountain landscape filled with untouched medieval towns and villages.
Mostar is clearly the focal point of Bosnia and Herzegovina when it comes to travel photography. The bridge is spectacular at all times of the day. Although, while it’s nice enough, the old town is still quite small.
It’s also quite humbling to see the photos of Mostar when it was under siege.
A Country of Two Halves
Bosnia is a country of two halves; Srpska sandwiching the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. People have said that it is obvious when you cross the internal border. I have to confess that the only reason I knew is because I was pulled over by the police for not having my lights on.
But it is the countryside where I found the country most interesting. High, barren mountains in the south that looked almost like a lunar landscape. Green, tree-filled valleys dotted with towns and villages that don’t look like they’ve changed in several centuries.
