Tour Detail

It is said that the soul of Bosnia is a Bosnian village, and the soul of a Bosnian village is reflected in the good rakija, so it is without a question the Bosnian national drink. Rakija is a long tradition that has its rules and special rituals. In Bosnia, rakija is always present, when we celebrate a new baby and a wedding, joining the army, or when we laugh or cry. Also, rakija is considered a universal medicine among local people. Sung in many songs, it has always been an integral part of the Bosnian gatherings where a glass of rakija is a symbol used to express welcome to guests.

We offer authentic Bosnian welcome and hospitality during which you will visit typical Bosnian tavern, taste diverse types of rakija, and along with the singing and joy warm up your body and soul. Join us in a relaxed tour of small taverns and reward your palate with various flavors of traditional drink (plum, pear, honey, cherry or walnut rakija). Selection is huge and every lover of good drink will find something. With a glass of rakija, sing and relax with us!

Important:

Walking tours, easy pace, adequate for the people with disabilities. Unlimited consumption of rakija and meze during the tour Vegetarian friendly. Photo is allowed during the tour. A possibility of purchase of homemade rakija with special discount.
