Bosnia & Herzegovina in October-December

As the temperatures become more mild, fall foliage sweeps over northern Bosnia & Herzegovina, painting the mountains and valleys in lovely shades of gold. Summer tourists have departed as well, making this an excellent season to discover the country’s most popular destinations, such as the Old Bridge in Mostar and the Sarajevo bazaar.

When the holidays approach, bright and festive holiday markets dot town squares and vendors selling roasted chestnuts roam up and down city streets. Otherwise, the autumn and winter months are very quiet here once the damp and cold set in.

Holidays & Events

  • November 25: Statehood Day is disputed, but the Bosniak-Croat Federation recognizes it on the anniversary of the signing of the resolution that formed Bosnia & Herzegovina in 1943. The Serbs celebrate it on November 21, the anniversary of the signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement in 1995.
