    Wow beautiful pictures. I spent a year in Bosnia in 1997. Most of my time was soent in the Tuzla area, and a bit of time was up in Sarajevo as well. I have some pictures from my time there but they are nothing like yours. I have lots of fond memories of my time in Bosnia. My wife and I are hoping o visit again one day. Your pictures just make us want to go back even more.

    Thank you very much on your kind words. Time is something that I don't have much in these days, but I'll try to keep posting

    Here is some pictures from Trebevic mountain. Trebevic mountain is a paradise for mountaineers, hikers and bikers simply because it's proximity to the Sarajevo and it's tick evergreen forests. Trebevic is on the edge of Sarajevo city center and you can start with climbing right from the city that is located on approximately 500 meter above sea level. Top of the mountain itself is at 1627 meter.
    Rest of the pics can be found on the link:

    I didn't post anything for a long time but as Terminator say: "I'll be back" - and here I am

    These pictures are taken from our bike tour in May this year. Couple of us gathered in Sarajevo and went for a ride in Misoca river canyon (there is some pictures above about this canyon). Weather was everything but nice - but this was a main reason for good time on the bikes.
    Do you feel angry sometimes when couple of mud drops fell on you during the ride and you are not dirty, but also you are not clean?
    That mixed feeling disappeared during that ride. We were covered with mud from head to toe and in front of us were 20-30 kilometers of mud
    Great feeling when you don't care about anything and just enjoy your ride

    Video material and full pictures album can be found here:

    We are talking about Bjelasnica mountain and Umoljani village with Cold creek river. There is a legend about dragon and this village connected with the creation of he creek, but more about this you can read in article:

    Studeni potok (Cold creek) near Umoljani village

    There you can find even more pictures

    Incredible amounts of snow hits Bosnia and Herzegovina. In Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, there is 108 centimeters of snow and more is expected during the next two days. On Bjelasnica mountain it's measured 230 centimeters of snow.

    Situation is hard, but we don't surrender

    You can find here some interesting and spirit lifting photos and videos - mostly from Sarajevo

    Giro di Sarajevo - 2012.

    If you came to Bosnia next month, precisely September the 2nd, it would be great to attend greatest cycling event in Sarajevo - Giro di Sarajevo.
    Last year there was more than 800 cyclists on the streets of Sarajevo, traffic was blocked by the police forces and everybody enjoyed bicycle riding through the main streets of Sarajevo.
    More about the event can be found on link:

    Giro di Sarajevo - 2012.



    Everybody is welcome... and, who know, maybe you could win a brand new GT bicycle

    Nice photos, I visited Bosnia and Hercegovina this summer, unfortunately just 4 days roadtrip. The lower parts were sometime bit scary, but mountains are beautiful like anywhere. I hope that will visit again, maybe with bicycle, it seems that it is biking in forgetten land and that's exactly how I like it

    One question, we had problems to get some usable map, of Bosnia and Hercegovina, even for car, for biking I think mission impossible, any advices where or how to get?

    Hi Bosnian!

    The pictures you take of Bosnia are fantastic.

    I am coming to Bosnia in August to cycle form Rijeka in Croatia to Mostar then on to Dubrovnik and back up the islands to Rijeka. I am a mountain biker but will be riding my touring bike with bags. I have maps of BiH but sometimes the roads they show are not on google maps or do not show on google earth. We want to stay away from the big roads so we can see more of the small villages but sometimes the small cart tracks just stop! What is your experience of using these cart tracks? If we ask local people will they know if we can get to the next village or town? Is there a website maybe that shows good maps?

    I am really looking forward to seeing the country and I hope you can help us with our route!

    Thankyou

    Mike
