This week we visit: Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia & Herzegovina has a healthy drinking culture, and loud, friendly behavior is completely normal.
Streets in major cities are lined with cafes and bars, open till late at night. Young people like to go out to and drink on the streets, and watch people walking by as they drink coffee.
Bosnia & Herzegovina’s nightlife, especially in Sarajevo, is widely known to be excellent. In the capital, the atmosphere is cosmopolitan. The city has more cafes per capita than any other European city. There are many opportunities for nightlife activities, from cinemas and bars and clubs, to opera and theatre. There are also frequent festivals, showcasing popular pastimes such as jazz and film.
Some cafés/bars have live music, others have DJ’s, rock music, and a lovely one in the Turkish quarter has a huge aviary as its centrepiece. Sarajevo is very busy, fast and the city’s notoriously beautiful women dress to see and bee seen. A rule-of-thumb is to assume that a waiter will find you as soon as you arrive, so you don’t order your drinks at the bar.
In Banja Luka, highly recommended places to visit are, KIC on Milana Rakica Street, Vienna, on the main street, and Kastel, within the grounds of the medieval castle. There is also a famous Hard Rock Café in Banja Luka.
