Sarajevo is the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is located in the central part of South-Eastern Europe and Balkans, that is, in the central part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Sarajevo is the largest urban, economic and cultural center of the country. It is the only city in the region with true Olympic heritage. The XIV Winter Olympic Games were held in Sarajevo in 1984. The city is unique for its rich history, architecture that is a blend of Eastern and Western civilization and due to its multireligious background it is known as the European Jerusalem. It is one of the rare capitals that is surrounded by magnificent mountains, and that is why you can reach the unspoilt nature immediately after leaving the city, just with a nice walk and get to an old-growth forest, mountain ranges and reefs, crystal clear streams and rivers and the highest waterfall in South Eastern Europe- Skakavac.
For all the before mentioned, Skakavac Trail is a unique race in the world in which you should definitely participate.
