Signature Experiences

Below are just a few examples of the signature experiences that MIR can arrange for you in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Let them be a source of inspiration, then get in touch with one of our Private Journey Specialists to craft an itinerary uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.

  • Explore the Sarajevo Tunnel Museum with a survivor who used the hand-dug tunnel to escape shelling during the brutal 1990s Siege of Sarajevo.
  • Meet dedicated members of a Sarajevo youth NGO, promoting sustainable peace and area development through interfaith projects in the aftermath of the 1990s Bosnian wars.
  • Appreciate Sarajevo’s street art and graffiti in a hands-on workshop and walking tour, learning its offbeat beginnings, visiting favorite spots such as the Olympic bobsled, and creating your very own graffiti art.
  • Create your own copper souvenir such as a dzezva (long-handled coffee pot) while learning from a Bosnian master coppersmith the centuries-old history, complex skills, and intense passion for this endangered craft.

Traveler Reviews

  • "The private viewing of the Sarajevo Haggadah was very profound. Our driver became a travel companion rather than a driver, great conversations! [We enjoyed] meeting people randomly along the way and having a chance to talk."
