Basic information about Bosnia and Herzegovina

At the very south of Western Balkans, with its slight heart shape, country of Bosnia and Herzegovina is located.

The name Bosnia comes from an Indo European word Bosana, meaning water. The name perfectly fits country with unprecedented natural beauty: numerous lakes, rivers, waterfalls, and a strip of the Adriatic Sea. Undoubtedly, Bosnia & Herzegovina has rich, interesting and extremely tumultuous history as none of the countries within Peninsula. Yet, the uniqueness of the country is particularly in embracing diversity and tolerance despite constant redefining and ensuring its independence, integrity and sovereignty.

Welcome to Bosnia and Herzegovina: country of long tradition, tolerance and spirit of multicultural society.

When you arrive for the first time, you notice imprints of earlier conquerors’ heritage due to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s constant exposure to foreign influences. Eastern and western civilizations meet here, sometimes confronting, but more often enriching each other throughout long and fascinating history. Bosnia & Herzegovina is known for hospitality of its peoples and treating guests as members of their family. Feel as being at your home even being away from your home.

“Traveling with a group is never an easy task, but Velvet Life made it very enjoyable and stressless."
“Traveling with a group is never an easy task, but Velvet Life made it very enjoyable and stressless. We loved Bosnia and all the nature it possesses. The part that made our trip even more relaxed is the fact we had a very luxurious van to travel with and a driver that was available to us 24/7. We are looking forward to come back to Bosnia with Velvet Life.”
