With its incredible blend of medieval and Ottoman architecture, modern conveniences, and breathtakingly beautiful natural landscapes, Bosnia and Herzegovina is one of Eastern Europe’s most rewarding places to travel. International flights to Bosnia and Herzegovina will take you to one of four airports: Sarajevo International Airport (SJJ), Banja Luka International Airport (BNX), Mostar Airport (OMO), or Tuzla International Airport (TZL).
Flights to Bosnia and Herzegovina
Tuzla International Airport is the hub at which most cheap flights to Bosnia and Herzegovina land. Wizz Air Hungary flies passengers into this airport from many cities across Europe, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates. Wizz Air also operates a shuttle service that takes passengers from Tuzla International Airport to Sarajevo. Tuzla International Airport is open between 3:30 a.m. and midnight, and its single terminal, which was designed to handle up 350 passengers at a time, is a sophisticated facility that boasts X-ray machines, customs control, and a border guard.
Sarajevo International Airport is served by a few budget carriers as well as Eurowings and Pegasus Airlines. The area around Sarajevo can be very foggy, particularly during the winter months, and this means that flights in and out of Sarajevo International Airport can experience delays.
Attractions in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Sarajevo’s old town, Stari Grad, has been largely rebuilt following the area’s devastating civil war and features many striking examples of Ottoman-era architecture. You’ll find everything from copper coffee sets to carpets in the little shops that line its cobbled streets.
The Museum of Sarajevo located near the Latin Bridge contains items, photographs, and exhibits that give visitors a glimpse of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s years under Austro-Hungarian rule. The assassination of Franz Ferdinand, which launched World War I, took place in a spot situated just outside where the museum stands today and is commemorated by a plaque.
Many travelers who take cheap flights to Bosnia and Herzegovina come for the rafting, mountain biking, and other adventures to be had in the countryside outside Banja Luka. The mountains in this part of the Balkans are dotted with picturesque villages that make for interesting day trips.
The city of Mostar’s famous Stari Most bridge was chosen to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. First built in the 16th century by Suleiman the Magnificent’s engineers, the bridge was lovingly recreated in the 21st century after toppled into the Neretva River during the conflict in the 1990s. Kravice Falls, a picturesque system of 80-foot waterfalls, is located 27 miles south of Mostar. It’s a popular swimming and picnic spot for travelers and locals alike during the warmer months.
