What a lovely hotel. The staff at reception are delightful: smiling, helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious and full of character. Breakfast was excellent. This is a splendid place to stay, and is literally round the corner from the site of Franz Ferdinand's assassination.

... to get a better understanding of the city and the history here.

I was looking forward to being somewhere where our money stretched a little farther.
The Sarajevo train was old but comfortable, only four coaches long and no ...
... of Cyrillic letters.
Me trying to read Cyrillic through a six-year-old Greek lens wasn't pretty, and few people we stopped spoke English, but we finally made it to our hotel and what a find! It felt like going back in time, like Mad Men or the history of Vegas. There was no hotel staff, just some dude in an expensive suit who took us to our room. We were the only people staying in the place. It was like the Balkan Playboy Mansion. There was a menagerie of animals in ...
... part of Yugoslavia. The Kravitce waterfalls were so powerful, we couldn't use the camera as it would have been damaged from all the spray - lucky it was a beautiful sunny day to dry off our clothes.
A night of delicious Bosnian food, like stuffed peppers and stew was a great preparation for the day we were waiting for. FINALLY ... We got to go white water rafting!
The Neretva river is spectacular for its views and beautiful landscape, however the rapids weren't ...
