Image of conflicts, poverty, and chaos, but within this chaos, this life energy, and beauty, it is regionally. Internationally. Renowned for its natural, environment and, cultural, heritage inherited. From six, historical. Civilizations. Today, is home to a population, 3.7. Million consisting. Of three main ethnic group of Bosnian, Serbs, and Croats with, a Muslim, majority it's, projected, to have a third highest, tourism, growth rate in the world from 1995, to 2020. That's, why I'm here to show it is safe to visit and to experience, the best what is life after over, its culture. Its people. As historical. Landmarks, it's, forgotten. Architectures. The nature, to, learn from the best and the, worst of humanity and, most, importantly. To, witness, a country, in transition. With a post-war. Legacy. Yes. Many, direct flight departing, from across, Europe to Sarajevo, International, Airport and if your journey starts here the, best way to get to the city center is by express, cello the, main bus station also offers dark buses, to and from other European cities, like Vienna to the past Christina, and split, but, my journey will begin from no visa in Serbia. So. I've also hop onto the bus tour Sarajevo, and one, thing that you have to realize, the. Luggage, is not including, the price of your ticket it's. Roughly about half euros, with. Some of these sensor so it's, not too bad. The. Ride takes a lot eight hours and costs, about 25 dollars so get, ready to enjoy the spectacular, sceneries. Included. In the price, ladies. And gentlemen, welcome, to Bosnia, we, have crossed borders and, pasture, the passport, control. We, are heading over to Syria which, is the. Capital city of the, country now. Sarajevo's east bus station served mostly Serbian and Montenegro. Cities this. Is why, get off it's also I realize, I'm completely. Broke now. There, is no, ATMs, or. Money. Exchanged, near. The bus station but. The good thing is there is a. Slot. Machine fight, yeah and, you can go in exchange, five euros. And walk down 200, meters and. Will they get the bus right. To the city centre let's go here. We go so we got to the, local bus stop. Right here and. This. About yeah 200, meters away is pretty right so. I'm just go and get our buses down to the city centre. So. Once you get onto the bus you, pay the driver. Can you have a seat. And just wait. Get. Off the laptop, Sarajevo. Is a capital, in the largest cities in Bosnia, home to a population of 600,000. In its metropolitan the. City is the political. Social and a common, center for culture, in the Balkans with his region-wide, influence. In entertainment, media, fashion, and the arts I recommend. You stay near the hotel which, was given, the nickname the Jews of all Europe where you can discover the Orthodox, and Catholic, churches mosques, and Seneca all in a Timmons Crowe this is also my accommodation. Sponsor hotels Easy's are located, they offer very. Comfortable. And clean rooms a great price with ensuite, minibar, hot showers and satellite television not to mention in-house barn, and very. Friendly, and cute. Staff but, my favorite it's amazing. Kick-ass breakfast, I'm not kidding, this is how I'm going to start my day good. Morning. I'm. Going to show you some. Traditional. Breakfast. That you have to try so, first things first I drink a lot and there's a great chance you, need to show you the, traditional. That's. Amazing.

With. Clean alright so we are ready to start a day and there's few chores I need, to do first, things I need money so. The best option is gotta be, free ATM.
Never. Accept a predetermined. Dynamic, exchange rate and here's an example you offer a hundred fifty marks for $90, and sixty-three cents um but, without, the fix a conversion, is only 9423. Now. If you cannot find a fee free ATM the second best option is to just exchange. A little. Bit of money I also. Recommend, you buy a local SIM card from the street kiosk is only five marks well about three dollars it come with a one gig of data for easy navigation, but I've been said let, our adventure, begin. But. In Turkish. Means absolutely, main or, the capital so this is actually one of the main squares behind. Me is actually Sabeel, it's, a water fountain built in 1753. By. Ottoman empire, this. Feel is our ottoman, style Woodson fountain founded by the head Park of Caprica, in 1753.

Also extensive, collection, of weapons use doing a Baltimore on display as well as a small gift shop featuring many local, handmade craft ink we many may founder use bullet, casings. So. I'm down with that have a museum and on. The way back to the. City but, just keep in mind it seems, like every, single bus stop I visit there is no bus schedule so make sure you find out in advance and, plan. Accordingly. What ivan-san is hope this will be a smooth ride come. On, transfer. I returned. To the hotel bus, stop and close by is a city hall which is also home to the National Museum, now, the City Hall also, is a museum. And, it's. A very expensive, film inside the air, also.

To get moles all the cereal, in this whole museum, ticket so, just, few minutes walk away it's a museum Siri, what 1878, to 1918. Is little kid on the spot where the heir to the austro-hungarian, throne, was, assassinated. Which led to the decoration, of the war on Serbia in the beginning of the World War one the.

After Extensive, renovation. The well design visitor friendly museum details and years of a so hungee renewal in Sarajevo, and effect, on the city from political and administrative changes. To arts and architecture and, everything, in, between since. I dressed, like a schoolboy. I think. I got a lesson in a round of high fashion. After. Learning about the Bosnian high fashion I was, able to track down one of the wealthiest, and the most prominent, serves lives in Syria yes that this big house is also, including, a museum, ticket. The. House was a wealthy, Orthodox, Christian district family who made the unfortunate as an art scene and a traitor and became, a policy, rebels, elite at end of the 19th, century and the beginning of 20th, century the, family donated, the hotel City and the, oldest part which dates on the 17th, century built, in several stages at three different periods. The. District, house even, serve as a precursor, to a city's modern, theater with the first theatrical. Performance, given in the drawing room of the house many, interesting, Island on display includes, the will made by the most famous and, influential, districts, the Haji Moscow, as well as a candle, that belong to his Austrian, darling, La Nina which was produced by a family-run. Company noodle, bar in Vienna. Sarajevo. Was under the control not, see in the fascist, Croatian, regime for four years during the World War two on the way to a presidential house I decided to drop by that infernal, flame to, pay my respects to a civilian, victim, of the occupation. This. Internal flame is delegated, to both military. And the civilian victims, of the Second World War and is. Actually, officially. Open, on the first anniversary of, the, liberation of Sarajevo, from a Nazi regime, as well as independent. Fascist, II of Croatia. Well. Unlike. The white house this, is a very, simple, presidential, building here you. Can get really close and. Just. Touch. It right here now. Something you can do back home. Sarajevo. Hosted, the 1984. Winter Olympics, and one of the main venue is singer Raya who is transforming. To say of our ice sports and. So. Basically today this venue is turned into a. Multi-purpose. Event, and tonight is our festival. Right here, and. Without being said let's, move board here's, a performance, from, definitions, and. This. One is coming up this from Russia. The. Multi-purpose, venue was damaged in the Bosnian war but was rebuilt shortly, after the halls are now used to host various sports, culture, and tree band organized, throughout, the year since, it also accepts, on Hanah from the Uncle, Sam I mean good, ole USA.

Buildings are either completely, destroyed, or heavily. Damaged, like, this, one the, st. Joseph's, Cathedral and this, really built in. 1914. During, the conflict, it was heavily damaged, but, after. The war it was quickly, restored. And renovated, to. Its full glory. However. The city was quickly rebuilt with the help of foreign aid and international. Investors, while the example, is a brand, new surival, city center located right, across the street it's. Only little, over 20 years ago when this city, is under siege well. Most of its infrastructure, is totally destroyed and today, I'm walking in of literally, a brand new mall and with off a modern, Western. Amenities, so, that's one thing I'm to give a Bosnian, people credit for her is the. Level of development without. Being sadness, going check out. What this mall has to offer. And, do some shopping I mean I mean there's some window shopping, we don't have purchased for Rio, shopping, there is a. Jason. Supima, is the Parliament, building of Bosnia and Herzegovina another.

Building for Bosnia Kadena, and initially. It was very in 1974. And named, the, executive council building now, during, 1992, the Bosnian conflict the, building was heavily shelled, by the Serbians, and it, wasn't until 2006. When government. Greece probably, 80% of the funding to restore the building and that's, why today is called, Greece, and, Bosnia. Huh Karina friendship. Building. After. Visiting all the major landmarks, learning, about some of this tragic, history I really. Need to get high sorry. I mean anything, that visit on a high, note very. Very. High note I'm serious.

Most noble feature is a twisted, facade it. Was chosen as one. It's. Very windy and cold so dress, appropriately. And this. So. I chosen, to end by my deficit, journey here in Syria. Very. Very.

How they are walking and, discovering. The city is happy to sit down I actually enjoy. A traditional Bosnian. Dish, it's actual, pie, consists. Of spinach. Cheese. As well, as veal. Meat and potatoes. It. Has a Turkish, origin, because. Of the Ottoman rule in this area and it's, especially, popular. Here in Bosnia because people eat it throughout the day especially popular.

Bosnian baked fill savory, pie made from a thin flaky, dough filled, with meat and rolling, a spiral and cut into sections for serving, mm-hmm. Next. Morning I woke up early to say goodbye to Sarajevo. And hello, to mostar, I took a 10 minutes taxi ride to the train station, the train ride takes about two and a half hours and some, even claim is well the world's most scenic, train, rides but I was, too sleepy and praying, there to enjoy it. After. A short coma, a German, couple woke, me up halfway. To Mozart. They. Recommended, me I should go underground literally. Since, life is too short. Why not oh this. Is really unexpected, on. The train I have, to love these German, friends, of ours and. The. Recommend, is a bunker. I say. When there's a venture, cost, of. Course, hopefully. We. Will be impressed. But. Anyways. You. Can walk either five kilometres and enjoy the spectacular, nature, or a 10-minute taxi ride given, the time constraints a. Perfect, excuse, for my laziness, and yes barking, and barking hard. The. Driver drop us off at the front gate given, the installation is located, in a military, zone we. Have to wait until our official guy comes, and escort, us the command, center, oh we are heading, into the bunker right now and. That, guy to. Come to that bunker your top cop a guy and. Without. Being said I'm really excited to get started, on, this, bunker. Journey. The. Bunker was built between 1953. To 1979, costing, over whopping. 4.6. Billion, in u.s. dollars is so, secretive, that only six people need about its existence including. Four generals, the Prime Minister and. Yugoslavs, and dictated, Josip, Broz Tito, I'm very, excited, to join this exclusive. Club since. Tito's, death I'm ready, to take over the command and assume the important, responsibilities, of the, Minister of Defense for, this country. 1953. When this construction, started, many. Things happen, in khanates this town, suddenly wasn't. Like we got the train station, we got a theater new. Buildings, for example building, in my street in which I'm living today it's built in 1953. Or, 1954. So, it took them two years so. If you want to distract, people from this area you, have to give them something else. This. Installations, serve as a cold war-era nuclear. Bunker and military, command center built without Yukos law president, Josip, Broz Tito, and up to, 350. Member of his inner circle in event of atomic, conflict the structures made our residential, areas conference, rooms offices. Strategic. Planning rooms and other, areas. Oh, hi. On. The red phone this, is the, commander, and that's where all the military personnel spend most of their time working. From now, you can see there's six red phones and each phone is for one republic, within, the Yugoslavia. And from, this room. You. Can call any of American installations across, the. Republics at. Any given time or. After. Tito's, death in 1982, complexes, Mobile a katrell even case of war in March 1992, during a break a law Yugoslavia. The Yugoslav, People's Army folder, is demolition. To deny it to the separatist, government of Bosnia, and Herzegovina. But the military detachment, refused, to carry out the order and instead, surrender, this structure to the separatist, government.
So. This complex, are very, sophisticated. Terra. Communication, facility, in, fact it can hold up to 350, numbers, of course some of my numbers included, and. Any. Call to make from this facility is untraceable, anywhere, no to anywhere in the world and as. You can see this is a map, of major. Installations. Around the country. I think Yugoslavia. And well right here is Tumbo that's. According to players. So. This is the. Recording. Room and all the outgoing calls, and, I've, guessed all the calls are. Being recorded. If there's any secrets, hmm. It's not gonna be secret. Any longer. Especially. If you make mistakes on my pizza folder, that's a crime right there wow, this, is definitely a very big. Complex. It's. Surprising. What 4.6. Billion can, buy you, now. Structure, was built with a torn, Pete Shelton nuclear blast and is dividing, two interconnected tall, block the most important, being block number six for communications, number nine for air filtrations. Number 10 for fuel storage and the, most important. Within. Here there's, a 117. But. My favorite is of super, luxurious, number, 8 the Tito's, block designed, to protect me, and accommodate. Lots of my Facebook friends well we can part up here for, up to six, months. The. Second floor is actually the. Living quarters for politicians, and this is Tito's. Private. Office. And, he's. Never been here so I guess. I will just take his place for now and. Make some few phone calls, to order my pizza, on, demand I guess but. Before. They come let me show you. The. Party bedrooms with. My lovely wife huh, she. Doesn't exist right now but, here. Is. The. Bathroom is amazing and. As. Well, over. Here where. My, future wife can basically. Do her makeup and dress pretty for our dinner. On. My way what. Have you said I do have a, few good friends we, should help, me out on the way. Wardrobe. The. Atomic, shelter was transformed, into a Museum of Contemporary Arts. Do art and to learn a new life with energy the arts brains is aim is to serve as a meeting point for artists, from across the region Europe, and the world the project see to preserve a cultural, heritage, and a historic.
Structure, As well as to create artistic value, and to react establish, a broken, connection, between the artist and the creative, people in the region I. Realized. I really love, the fresh air being the commander in chief is, definitely. Not my cup of tea, so after, handing in my resignation I definitely. Know our taxi, driver is calling, everyone. To bad-mouth me about the week, and I'm patriotic. Like present, Donald Trump, so let's, escape from my shame and head it to the bus stop to continue, on to mostar, now a total ride takes one hour I have, so please, enjoy all, the magnificent, views.

Plan for the remainder of the day is to check out the nearby town black guy and his famous, devilish. Mama say so at the source of the river buna but there is, a problem, yikes, when, you go to a country like Bosnia holiday. Other countries, never, relied, too much on. As. I walked towards the old town, I was once, again haunted. With the country's. Bloody history, many. Other shell buildings are intentionally, preserved, and served, as a reminder of Bosnian, strategy, paths and, the price I paid for, is independence. My.
