Meeting of Cultures

The price may be subject to seasonal variations. For single bookings we have to ask for a single room surcharge. On request it is also possible to book a transfer with a driver at an additional charge instead of a rental car.
Do you have a special request? Do you want certain activities to take place on your trip? Or do you have more or less time available? Upon request, we will create a personalized itinerary for you, tailored to your specific interests and desires. Fill out our questionnaire and we will arrange a video call with you, where we can discuss all your wishes!
Your “Meeting of Cultures” experience starts in Sarajevo, which is often referred to as the “Jerusalem of Europe” for good reason. Here, you can begin your holiday slowly and relaxed, getting to know Bosnia and Herzegovina first. You have the day to yourself – in your travel PDF, you will find some suggestions from us, after all, we know Sarajevo like the back of our hand!
Are you ready for some incredible cultural heritage? Coppersmithing has been a tradition in Sarajevo for centuries. During a city tour through Sarajevo’s eventful history, you will also visit the coppersmith street – and bring home a very special souvenir! But what is a country if it does not have a kitchen? To understand Bosnians, you must not only walk in their shoes, but also eat from their plates! That is why, for your second evening, we have planned a cooking class with a Bosnian family in which you will prepare five dishes and taste them with local wines!
After two days in Sarajevo, you continue on to Herzegovina! Here you will set up camp for three nights in Mostar, a city that not only boasts the UNESCO World Heritage bridge Stari Most, but also allows you to immerse yourself in Herzegovinian culture. Here, the clocks run a little slower! After a city tour, you have the rest of the day to explore this adorable little town at your leisure.
Are you ready for a lot of Herzegovina? Today, you’ll visit an ancient dervish monastery and learn about the Muslim culture that has influenced life in Bosnia and Herzegovina for centuries. You can rest assured that the Tekija is more than just a monastery; the site where it was built is also well worth seeing! You will also visit a picturesque artists’ village and end your day in the Herzegovinian wine region, where you will learn about autochthonous grape varieties and experience typical Herzegovinian hospitality at a boutique winery!
Today is a day for relaxation after an eventful day yesterday! The day will be spent at the Trebziat River, a cool tributary of the Neretva. You can swim all day, take siestas, and sample local cuisine at a beach bar. Perfect for recharging before leaving the Mostar region. If you are still energetic and feel you don’t need a rest day, you can book an optional kayak safari on the river!
Today’s drive in Dubrovnik’s green front yard: Trebinje! But first, we visit the small town of Stolac and visit the Radimlja burial ground. Why go to graveyards, you ask? Because the steci, or mediaeval tombstones, are found nowhere else in the world! They were built only in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Montenegro, like the faces on Easter Island. Not only that, but they also display exciting inscriptions and reliefs, tell Middle Ages stories, and were even added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2016.
You will have lunch in Ravno, one of the smallest villages in the country, but with a really great restaurant – a restored station of the Ćiro train, which in Austro-Hungarian times connected the countries of Serbia, BiH, and Croatia. In Trebinje, you have the late afternoon at leisure.
It’s time for a city tour of this small town that gets far too little attention compared to its neighbour Dubrovnik. However, we guarantee that after a city tour, you will fall in love with Trebinje just as much as we have! The afternoon is then devoted to outstanding Herzegovinian wines. You will visit two wineries, taste the region’s wines, and enjoy mezze and a traditional Herzegovinian dinner.
Today is yours to spend in Trebinje as you like! Do you want to go on a hike to the fortress? Why not try stand-up paddling on Trebinjica? Or how about going to the Herzegovina Museum? You have a choice. Of course, we’ll give you some restaurant recommendations for dinner!
Today we return to Sarajevo, but not before stopping in Sutjeska National Park, which contains a very special memorial to heroes.
Time to travel home – with a lot of precious memories in your luggage!
