Things to do in Bosnia


Rafting


Rafting on the Neretva river, the Una river and the Tara with the Drina river, with some shorter courses on the Krivaja river, the Vrbas river and the Sana river.

Kayaking and canoing


The Neretva river and its tributary the Trebizat, the Unac river, also the Krivaja river and its tributary Biostica river are great kayaking destinations with a lot of whitewater on the Krivaja river. The Pliva river and its lakes Veliko and Malo are great canoing destinations, also the middle and lower Una river, the Trebizat river.

Canyoning


The famous Rakitnica Canyon and the Rakitnica river, tributary of the Neretva river, offer great canyoning adventure, but even extreme canyoning rout can be found in the Bjela river another tributary of the Neretva river. The Unac river and its canyon offer great canyoning rout.

Buy


The official currency is the konvertibilna marka (convertible Mark), at a fixed rate of 1.95 towards the Euro (1 EUR = 1.95 KM). Be sure to get small bills, as anything above 20 KM will most likely get you into trouble when you want to pay due to lack of small change. You can pay almost everywhere with Euro bills, and will be able to change them almost everywhere (shops, taxi) - at a rate of 1 EUR = 2 KM; for changing, up to 50 EUR should be fine in most cases; for paying, up to 10 EUR.

Eat


The most available food in Sarajevo is Cevapi (normally 2-4 KM), the ubiquitous Balkan kebab. Two prominent variations exist - the "Banja Luka" Cevap, a larger kebab with a square shape, and the Sarajevo Cevap, smaller and round. If not had before, every visitor should try an order of Cevapi at least once. There are several variations of pita (around 2KM), a sometimes-greasy pastry made of filo dough and stuffed with meat ( Burek ), cheese ( Sirnica ), spinach ( Zeljanica ), potatoes ( Krompirusa ) or apple ( Jabukovaca ). If you get to Mostar, however, try to grab a plate of trout ("pastrmka," which sounds like "pastrami"), which is the local specialty (a particularly fine restaurant serving locally farmed trout lies by the wonderful Blagaj monastery, a short bus ride from Mostar).
