Ski down tree-lined pistes while staying in Jahorina, home to the 1984 Winter Olympics and one of Bosnia’s most beautiful ski resorts.

Jahorina is one of the four mountains where the Sarajevo Winter Olympics were held in 1984. Today, it is still a popular winter holiday destination, thanks to its close proximity to Sarajevo, just 30km (19mi) away. Come summer, the green pastures and alpine trails attract hikers. Stay in Jahorina, surrounded by lush forests and green peaks, or book a room in Sarajevo and take a short day trip to the mountains.
