Dubrovnik, with its location at the southern tip of Croatia, makes a great jumping-off point for jaunts into nearby Bosnia & Herzegovina. This mostly land-locked country on the Balkan peninsula is predicted to have one of the highest tourism growth rates in the next 10 years.
The most popular Bosnian destination from Croatia (whether for a day or a week) is the city of Mostar. This UNESCO World Heritage site delivers a blend of eastern and western cultures thanks to its ties to the Turks, and also offers visitors a unique look at the consequences of the Bosnian War of the 1990s on the region. While the city is still recovering from Bosnia's revolution, this fact only helps add to the Old Town's intrigue and character.
