Destination: Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina

The town is 239m above sea level, stretching across an area of approximately 15 km2. The city's population is approximately 100,000 but the greater municipal area has over 170,000 inhabitants.

Tuzla is the economic, scientific, cultural, education, health and tourist centre of northeast Bosnia. The settlement of Tuzla has always been closely tied to its salt resources. The oldest written records, left behind by Greek, prove that even they were aware of the regions' salts. Tuzla received its name much later. The present-day name is derived from the Turkish word Tuz, meaning salt. The first Ottoman document recording the exploitation of Tuzla's saltwater springs dates from 1548.

Tuzla fountain
Tuzla has long been known as a waterless city. Therefor, a big fountain (česma) was installed sometimes during Turkish rule on what used to be the main square.

Sit back and relax
In practice, we often encounter situations when the event is organized by the company itself because it does not seem as an issue. “ The hall shall just be rented, we should come up with some program and send invitations”.

"Thank you for your professionalism"
“I have been to Bosnia couple of times but the time with Velvet Life was definitely the best. Velvet Life managed to show me places I have never seen before and probably would have never found them if I planned the trip by myself. Thank you for your professionalism. "
