If there is one thing that BiH excels at, it is celebration! Celebrating just about everything under the sun, from film and music to wine and poetry is a trademark of our culture!
From folk to film, some of the best regional festivals can be found in Bosnia and Herzegovina, highlighted by the world-renowned Sarajevo Film Festival. Bosnia and Herzegovina has long been known as a small country with a big culture. It was, in many ways, the cultural backbone of the former Yugoslavia – producing a number of the country’s music and film icons. The country hosts a fascinating mix of cutting-edge urban film and theatre fests and traditional festivals that portray the deep-rooted history of traditions here.There are dozens of smaller, more rural festivals around the country, like the UNESCO-listed Kupres scythe grass-cutting competition and Vareš’ Dutch oven cook-off to name a few.
