COMMENTS ABOUT Bosnia & Herzegovina:
Located in Southeastern Europe, Bosnia and Herzegovina borders the Adriatic Sea and Croatia. The country is full of extremes with mountains experiencing cool summers and very cold winters. In the valleys and coastline, vacationers enjoy mild winters and beautiful, hot summers, so dress accordingly when you plan your next trip.
For those interested in the outdoors, enjoy whitewater rafting or scale one of the nearby mountainsides. With so many rivers, valleys, and even the Adriatic Sea available, fishing is also a wonderful pastime. Or stop by the gorgeous Kravice waterfall and enjoy a romantic picnic.
For anyone interested in ancient cultures and history, there is one exciting location you cannot miss. The Bosnian Pyramid of Visocica Hill was the first to be discovered in Europe. Or visit the UNESCO World Heritage bridges of Mehmed Paša Sokolović and Old Mostar. The pristine, white archway of Old Mostar looks as though conjured from a dream.
Sarajevo, the capital, is a destination growing in popularity. The classic architecture is incredible, and markets have some of the best fresh vegetables and fruit to be found. Enjoy delicious meals at Dveri, Tavola, or one of the many restaurants in this bustling city. Hire a private guide to tour the Sarajevo Brewery or the Tunnel Museum. In the evenings, enjoy an exciting nightlife that will certainly leave you with fond memories.

Guide Licensing Information for Bosnia & Herzegovina
Due to the increase in the number of tourists visiting Bosnia and Herzegovina every year, the country is experiencing a small boom in tourist related services, including guiding. It is relatively easy to find a guide in the most popular places around the county these days. However, only a small number of these guides have an actual license. Even if the guide claims to be licensed in his or her advertisements, this doesn`t necessarily mean that they possess a valid license. So when contacting a tour guide, make sure to ask them to provide a copy of their license, which they are obliged to carry all the time when conducting tours.
Guiding licenses are issued by the Ministry of Economy after passing a set of tests. Solicitors may enroll in special courses or try to pass the test if they have relevant diplomas in tourism, culture, history or arts relating to the area they look forward to servicing. The license should carry the authentic stamp of the Ministry of Economy and the entire guide's personal information. The potential guide should address local authorities of the canton he's willing to work in, since Bosnia and Herzegovina is a federation. Not carrying a license when asked by the police usually results in a substantial fine. However, due to the strong presence of shadow economy "wild" guides make up the larger part of the market, and you may even be suggested to use their services by official Info Centers, hotels and even authorities.
