Bosnian Jewel

Ilidža, Bosnia & Herzegovina

Ilidža, Bosnia & Herzegovina

This pretty postcard that shows the beauty Ilidža, the 7th largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina, comes from Snježana. It is only my second postcard from the country and I’m always happy to have more than one of a country. Ilidža is known for its natural beauty (one can see why) and its cultural traditions dating back to neolithic times. The city has a population of 158 000 people and once boasted one of the 5 best city-based economies in Yugoslavia. That all changed after the war but the city is one its way to recovering economically. Thank you so much Snježana!
