On to Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina and certainly the most Turkish-looking city in the Balkans—famous for its mosques, markets, and bazaars. Your included city sightseeing with a Local Guide will give you a grand opportunity to get acquainted with the city and its architectural highlights. (B,D)

Day 6Sarajevo–Plitvice National Park, Croatia

Travel north today back into Croatia to visit the country’s best-known national park—PLITVICE. Enjoy a walk with a Local Guide through the breathtaking scenery of this natural wonder.

With Cosmos, there’s no better way to get to know your destination than through the eyes of your Tour Director. Averaging over a decade... we’d like you to meet a Tour Director, who is representative of the type of expert that will be with you on your vacation.

VJENCESLAV ZATKOVIC ( WENTZ )

Years of Experience: 15 years

I decided to become a Tour Director in order to see the world-and lose weight. Unfortunately, the latter is impossible in Slovenia and Croatia, because the food is incredible. Still, it was worth a try! Since those early years I've discovered that the reality of travel is better than I ever imagined. Every day is different, and there is always something new to see and learn.
