Kam na výlet? Do Bosny a Hercegoviny

Kam na výlet? Do Bosny a Hercegoviny

Krásná země poznamenaná bohužel válkou se probouzí do nového života. Nabízí čarokrásnou přírodu, avšak pozor na na pozůstatky války - zaminovaná území.

For a land marred by the sad images the war that ended over 8 years ago, you’ll be amazed to find that BiH is one of the most culturally and naturally diverse lands in all of Europe. Come discover for yourself the true Bosnia and Herzegovina, the ancient lands that once divided east and west but who now unite them.

Bosnia and Herzegovina is the “heart of Europe”, connecting East with West.

When to go

Having the advantage of two types of climates there are several ‘good’ seasons to visit Bosnia and Herzegovina. Summers throughout the whole country are hot and dry. Bosnia enjoys cool evenings in the mountainous regions whereas Herzegovina has an arid Mediterranean climate that makes summer sunny and hot averaging over 90 F (30 + C).
Prices for accommodation are generally higher in the summer season (July-August). From June to mid September the weather in Bosnia is warm. In Herzegovina the warm weather starts earlier in May and lasts easily into the end of September.
Spring and Autumn are lovely months to visit. In May the countryside is teeming with wildflowers, the days are pleasantly warm with cool, refreshing evenings and people are out in hordes after the cold winter months. October and November are good months to avoid any crowds and enjoy the barrage of orange, red and yellow leaves that paint the forests. These months do experience some rain but share an equal amount of cool, sunny days – particularly in Herzegovina.

The best time for a winter visit are the snow months if you are a skier. Herzegovina experiences little snow and has much milder winters. Bosnia and the mountainous regions have very cold winters and high snow precipitation. Olympic skiing on Mt. Bjelasnica, Igman and Jahorina are ideal in January and February. February, however, is the coldest month of the year frequently having minus temperatures. The roads in winter are decent but not great. The winter road clearance teams are getting better but are nowhere near as safe as European or North American roads during or after heavy snowfalls. Any extensive winter travelling in Bosnia should be accompanied by snowchains.

It’s a safe to say May through October are great times to visit in Bosnia. Herzegovina enjoys an even longer period of pleasant weather from April often well into November.
