A campaign to market Bosnia as the next big adventure destination was launched by High Representative Paddy Ashdown in London on 20th May. A tourism road show featuring Lord Ashdown, Bosnian government ministers and tourism experts has been visiting five European capitals including Berlin, Geneva, Stockholm, and The Hague.

Presenting Bosnia as a country of pristine mountains and beautiful rivers with hospitable people and a unique multi cultural heritage, the campaign said that images of the 1992 to 1995 war were out of date. Bosnia-Herzegovina announced its autonomy from Yugoslavia in the spring of 1992. Instantly battling broke out between the three primary ethnic gatherings that made up the nation: the Moslems, the Croats and the Serbs. Notwithstanding years of living respectively, the nation soon partitioned into Moslem, Croat and Serb zones, with each attempting to drive out those of other ethnic influences. 


Bosnia now had the necessary infrastructure in place to welcome tourists. The focus was on capturing the independent adventurous traveller, with the highlight on outdoor activities such as skiing, trekking, rafting and mountain biking.

Lord Ashdown sees tourism as having the potential to be one of Bosnia's major industries and hoped that it would encourage the growth of small businesses. Stressing that Bosnia was a stable country with a stable currency and low inflation, he also emphasized that most Westerners felt safer walking the streets of Sarajevo than in their own country.

Fielding the expected question on landmines, Ashdown pointed out that landmines had not stopped countries like Vietnam or Croatia from becoming tourist destinations. A large proportion of the country had never been mined and he declared that Bosnia was a year from becoming mine-safe.

Bosnia declaration of sovereignty in October 1991, was followed by a referendum for independence from the former Yugoslavia in February 1992.

The Bosnian Serbs supported by neighbouring Serbia responded with armed resistance aimed at partitioning the republic along ethnic lines and joining Serb held areas to form a greater Serbia.
