Across the border to Sarajevo in Bosnia Herzegovina

On the way we cross the Drina River by the bridge at Visegrad. Google it as has so much history since the Ottoman Turks built it in 16 century.

Then on to Sarajevo, the cultural heart of Bosnia Herzegovina. A small, bustling city where Muslims, Catholics, Jews & Eastern Orthodox & their places of worship mix amongst winding alleys & covered markets. Mix in a few tourists and add some Turkish bazaars & a flavour of Moroccan souks and you get a bustling, glittering and in places elegant city.

Poverty & the scars of war are never too far away.
